West Virginia Senate to consider Gun Training in School
As a parent, i think "Gun Saftey" is an important class. Unfortunately, my daughters will likely never go hunting with me, but they will take gun safety. I want to be sure that if a "friend" of their's shows them a gun, they know exactly what to do, and what not to do. using the class to promot hunting is great anyway, but i think the knowledge itself is priceless. you just never know where a gun will pop up, and the uninformed are the ones that get hurt.
What does "gauge" mean anyway? As used here gauge means the number of round lead balls the same diameter as the inside of the barrel (aka the bore) that it would take to weigh one pound. It takes 12 lead balls the same diameter as a 12 gauge barrel to weigh a pound. The smaller 20 gauge would require 20 balls of that barrel diameter. The larger bore 12 gauge would require 12 lead balls of the bore diameter to weigh one pound.
In general the number of pellets in a shotgun shell...
