Good luck with that. The manufacturer calls it a shotgun:
Go to https://www.mossberg.com/firearms/
Click 'Shotguns' at the left
Then click 'Pump-Action'
590® Shockwave appears in that list.
Just because it is not a shotgun for the purpose of the Gun Control Act of 1968 doesn't mean it's not a shotgun under all laws. Nothing in Ohio law defines 'shotgun' but nothing in Ohio law explicitly defers to the GCA of 1968 for the definition either.
