Not quite as awkward as "fun with flags" but getting there.

The largest I've ever fired is 12 Gauge.  I've seen 10 Gauge shels in person and after seeing this big dude fire them, I think I'll pass on any future offer to try them out.

Holy shit, you aren't kidding.  $2.40 a round for the cheapest stuff.

Excuse my ignorance: 12 gauge is smaller than 10 gauge? Can anybody clarify how this system works?

The higher the number, the smaller the shell. I believe it had to do with the weight of a lead ball measured in the imperial system ie. 10 gauge = 1/10th of a lb, 12 = 1/12lb. One of the exceptions is the .410 "gauge" which is essentially the smallest and is measured by bullet diameter instead of weight like a shotshell and is about the same size as a .45 Colt and can be interchanged in some firearms like the Taurus Judge or Smith & Wesson Govenor revolvers.

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shotgun_shell has a reference chart. 10 is the largest. 12 gauge is by far the most common, probably followed by 20 gauge for smaller game. 16 gauge is more of a European thing now, not too many 16 gauges in North America anyway.
