When it comes to the measurement gauge, the smaller the number the thicker or heavier the material.For instance:10 gauge steel is thicker than 18 gauge steel.A 5 gauge needle is much larger than a 10 gauge needle.A 12 gauge shotgun is larger than a 20 gauge.

There is no "30 guage" firearm. The term Gauge is used to denote the diameter of a shotgun barrel- the smaller the number, the larger the barrel. Rifles and handguns are denoted in calibers- caliber being one inch, and expressed as decimal fractions in 1/100th of an inch. If you are trying to compare a 20 gauge shotgun to a .30 caliber rifle, the 20 guage is about .690 caliber, versus .308 caliber for the rifle. Shotgun is much gigger in this case. But if there were a 30 gauge, the 20 gauge would be larger.

Never heard of a model 22 BPS. A Browning BPS in 20 gauge can vary from 150-400 depending on condition.

12 gauge is thicker than 20 gauge. The lower the gauge, the thicker the sheet metal or wire.

The larger the gauge, the smaller the diameter. That makes 22 gauge wire not as thick as 18 gauge wire.

20 gauge is thicker (the lower the number, the thicker the steel).

Yes ... the smaller the number, the larger the wire diameter. As a comparison, telephone wires are usually 22 gauge.
