(f) Destructive device
The term “destructive device” means...

(2) any type of weapon by whatever name known which will, or which may be readily converted to, expel a projectile by the action of an explosive or other propellant, the barrel or barrels of which have a bore of more than one-half inch in diameter, except a shotgun or shotgun shell which the Secretary finds is generally recognized as particularly suitable for sporting purposes;
It's still a pain, but if you can own an AOW in your state, the transfer fee is only $5.

Another popular recent option is to obtain a factory pistol grip only shotgun, put a bird's head grip on it, and shorten the barrel until the firearm is just over 26" in length. You can generally get down to maybe a 14" barrel or so. It falls into a legal-for-now dark grey area since the '34 NFA defines shotguns as being fired from the shoulder, but doesn't specify a minimum barrel length (or minimum overall length, for that matter) for AOW's.

Google non NFA shotgun for details.

Note that many states mirror NFA law in their regulations and that it may not be lawful to own in some states.
