what sizes of plugs are called.
not a verb. you can not gauge.

you can stretch a piercing you can not gauge it. it would be like saying "I'm going to large" its what Sizes are referred to. NOT a verb.

the bigger the number the smaller the hole. 18ga is a standered ear piercing size.. when the numbers get smaller ex, 16, 14, 12... it means the hole is bigger.
18ga, 16ga, 14ga, 12ga, 10ga, 8ga, 6ga, 4ga, 2ga, 0ga, 00ga, 000ga.

a word that obviousally, no one here knows what it means... it does not mean the size of the lead shot in the shell.

a gauge is defined as the ammount of perfectly round lead balls that you can make out of a pound of lead that will fit perfectly down that particular barrel. for example, with a 12 gauge barrel, 12 lead balls that fit perfectly in the barrel will equal a pound. The size of the shot has nothing to do with the gauge of the gun. you can have a .410 bore shotgun with triple ought buckshot(very large pellets) or you can have #9 shot(very small pellets) the most common shot sizes are 8,7.5,7,6 used for trap, skeet, birds, squirrels, etc
10 gauge= 1/10lb lead ball
12 gauge= 1/12lb lead ball
16 gauge= 1/16lb lead ball
20 gauge= 1/20lb lead ball
28 gauge= 1/28lb lead ball
.410 bore = .410" bore...

A system of measurment in which a higher number indicates a smaller size. Most commonly used for wires and shotgun shells (the gauge refers to the size of the pellets in the shell, not the shell itself), but can be used for anything relatively small
A 12 gauge is more powerful than a 20 gauge

A high gauge extention cord will set your house on fire
