Quiz Question

Steve and Greg, hold off answering this week’s Quiz Question until some others have had a crack at it.

When you go into Home Depot and purchase some electrical wire, you will notice it comes in different sizes. Wire diameter is specified by its gauge. The deal is the smaller the gauge the thicker the wire. You may not also know that a similar gauge system is used for sheet metal. 8 gauge sheet is getting toward boiler plate thickness. 32 gauge is some thin stuff.

When it comes to shotguns, a gauge system is used to specify the bore. The very common 410 shotgun is not a gauge measure. I could be wrong, but I think a 410 has a 0.410-inch bore. The only common shotgun gauges I know are 10-gauge and 12-gauge. Doesn’t matter.

This week’s Quiz Question is, how is a shotgun gauge determined?

Provide your answer in the comments section below. No need to post your answer on Facebook. I always do that when I post the answers.
