Respond with additions and corrections and I'll try and maintain the list above.

Maybe there's an easier way and there's an existing list I've missed somewhere.

Nope. 3.5 pound trigger can make an iron sight gun a wad gun.

I thought a Wad Gun referred to a 45? Also, I guess i thought it meant wadcutter:?: 

This would include my GSP with the .32 barrel?

A Wadgun is any pistol NOT legal to be used in CMP EIC matches.  In the awl'd days that was sort of limited to 1911s.  Now it's a little tougher to define.
