No. A 12 gage shotgun shoots a larger charge than a 16 gage. Shotgun sizes were designated according to the number of steel balls that could be dropped into the barrel that would weigh a pound. 12 steel balls weighing one pound would be dropped into a 12 gage shotgun. Thus it is a larger size than a 16 gage. (Do not waste your money on a 16 gage shotgun, at least in the United States. You will have difficulty finding shells. You should get a 12 gage or a 20 gage.)

20 of anything is generally larger than 1 of them.

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.

It is a shotgun with 20 gauges.

There are an infinite number of multiples of 20 that are larger than 20: any whole number larger than 1, such as 2...all the way to infinity: thus 2 x 20 = 40,3 x 20 = 60,4 x 20 = 80...infinity.

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.
