Carrie Wilson on Outdoors: Combo abalone gauge must meet specs

Question: I am going over abalone laws again for any details I may have missed and I have one quick question. Measuring devices: You must have a fixed-arm measuring gauge, capable of spanning an abalone’s shell. It is a violation to take an abalone when not in possession of a gauge, even if the abalone is legal size. But what if the gauge is part of the ab iron? Since it has a fixed arm that is capable of measuring abalone, I assume this gauge is legal. I just wanted to confirm since I am hearing that people are being approached for this type of gauge. Thanks. Jerry
