Guns You Can Get

In CA, you can ONLY get shotguns that are designated as "Any Other Weapon" by the National Firearms Act on 1934.

26 U.S.C § 5845 (e) The term “any other weapon” means any weapon or device capable of being concealed on the person from which a shot can be discharged through the energy of an explosive, a pistol or revolver having a barrel with a smooth bore designed or redesigned to fire a fixed shotgun shell, weapons with combination shotgun and rifle barrels 12 inches or more, less than 18 inches in length, from which only a single discharge can be made from either barrel without manual reloading, and shall include any such weapon which may be readily restored to fire. Such term shall not include a pistol or a revolver having a rifled bore, or rifled bores, or weapons designed, made, or intended to be fired from the shoulder and not capable of firing fixed ammunition.

In short, it must be a shotgun (smooth bore - no rifling), that came from the factory in a pistol grip only configuration having an overall length of less than 26" or a barrel less than 18".
