Does anyone have a source of info on which gauge came first...

i believe many of them arrived together, as the fixed cartridge was invented. i have a book that will say exactly what you want to know but i left it at a friends house and need to go get it.

Whatever bore the .72 or .69 cal were since the shotgun evolved from their use as "fowlers"

Do you mean size matters....

In that case I'm sure I have a 2 bore or at least a 4 bore..

Bloody Brits, now we have the whole bore thing. :D
