it's refreshing, young man sticks to his guns. Does not smell fish but knows how to cast. Uplifting and surprising at once.

Now the bright morning Star, Day's harbinger,
Comes dancing from the East, and leads with her
The Flowery May, who from her green lap throws
The yellow Cowslip, and the pale Primrose.
Hail bounteous May that dost inspire
Mirth and youth, and warm desire,
Woods and Groves, are of thy dressing,
Hill and Dale, doth boast thy blessing.
Thus we salute thee with our early Song,
And welcome thee, and wish thee long.

On May Morning

3.10 Gauge

Shotguns are measured in gauge. For shotguns, gauge is the number of lead balls, each the diameter of the gun's bore, that it would take to weigh one pound. For example, if you have lead balls the same diameter as a 12-gauge shotgun bore, it will take 12 of those balls to make one pound.
How many 16-gauge lead balls would it take to make one pound? 20-gauge? 28-gauge?
As shown in the drawings at right, the larger the gauge number, the smaller the bore diameter. For example, a 20-gauge shotgun has a smaller bore diameter than a 10-gauge shotgun. It takes more balls, of a smaller size, to equal one pound.
The .410 is the only exception to the way in which shotguns are measured. Look carefully at how this number is written. It is actually a caliber because it has a decimal point (.) in front of the number! The .410—if measured in gauge—would really be about a 67 gauge!
