Reader Question: What Happens if you Lodge a 20 Gauge Shell in a 12 Gauge Barrel?

Earlier this spring I asked for your questions to answer for a new segment filmed for season two of "The Gun Nuts" TV show on the Outdoor Channel. I promised a Gun Nuts hat to readers whose questions I answered on the air. In this one I'm responding to Pbshooter1217, who asked if a gun really does blow up if you lodge a 20 gauge shell in a 12 gauge barrel. Thanks. Good question, and here's the answer in the video above.

The other hat winners are:

Bassmasterking asked, how you know how much to lead a flying target quickly and accurately?

Ableskeever asked, what is the best bang for the buck shotgun, rifle, and pistol?

Jim in MO asked why he shoots side by sides better than other kinds of shotguns Bh10x asked what is the best way to test an O/U to make sure it is still tight enough to shoot. SteveT asked what is the length of a shotstring?

Cdenham asked about whether shooters should shoot from their dominant hand side or dominant eye side if they are cross dominant.

Congratulations to all of you, and I hope you enjoy season two of The Gun Nuts. Contact our webmaster to get your hats. The Gun Nuts premieres Wedneday, June 29 and will be broadcast four times a week: Wednesdays at 5:00pm and 8:00pm; Thursdays at 3:30am; Sundays at 6:30am (all times are EST).
