10 Gauge

10 Gauge are long green and 12 gauge are the short

I have had the opportunity a few times to shoulder a 10 gauge.  I wouldn’t carry it for hunting or skeet because it is very big and heavy and my 20 gauge kills the clay just the same.

I like using it for demonstration proposes with a slug. the 10 gauge shells we have used in the past have been 3 or 4 slugs stacked on top of each other and when blowing up a 5 gallon bucket of water it makes a nice show.

At this time I do not have a picture of it to post but next chance I get I will try and get a video of it and post it here on the site.

The 10 gauge is fun to shoot but with the adaptation of the 3” 12 gauge shells , we no longer needed a larger gauge to hold more pellets for hunting.
