Smoothbore pistols are restricted in US. They are not banned, but they must be registered and a special tax must be paid when buying one.

However, there are pistols that will chamber .410 shotshells and .45LC pistol ammo. They typically have at least a short rifled section near the muzzle, or a fully rifled barrel, which allows them to be classified as regular handguns and therefore avoid the extra restrictions.

The most notable one is the Judge revolver from Taurus. There are also a few derringer-style pistols from several small manufacturers, like Cobray/Leinad.
