How can this

be a pistol, while these aren't?

Especially that first one, which is also .223 cal. The other two are 12 ga.

They don't look all that different to my non-expert eyes. All are two handed "pistols" and semi-auto. They do the same job about equally.

So, what's the difference? I've seen "pistols" that look like short barreled rifles and SBRs that look an awful lot like some "pistols".

Why does the BATF rule one way on one and the other on another, other than just because they can???

The variety and disagreements in the answers to my questions only makes me wonder even more. Why are some guns "pistols" and some that look pretty much like them are "AOWs" or "SBRs"? If this group can't agree... OK, I rest my case.

But I still would like to know. I really do have an inquiring mind, ya know, which has gotten me in a lot of trouble over the years..........!!!
