Shotgun Quiz

Leave a comment

In the Texas Fish & Game magazine, July 2011 issue, Vol. 27, No. 3, Inland Edition, there is a quiz. It’s a quiz about shotguns, by Steve LaMascus, the TF&G guns editor.

I’ve taken one other Texas Fish & Game quiz: The Catfish Quiz. This post is shorter even than that one because I didn’t try to answer any of the questions in this quiz. One question stood out for me, however — question #19.

Question #19: The shotgun was used in defense of the Alamo during Texas’ War of Independence from Mexico. True or False. The answer is True. “Texans knew a good defensive gun when they saw it, and a side-by-side double barrel muzzleloader offered twice the punch at close range.”

The quiz has a bonus question: Which shot is smallest? (A) T (B) F (C) B (D) BB. Do you know?
