    Even the US Coast Guard has restrictions from live fire training on the Lake.

    And personally, from many years as a weapons instructor, way too much chit that could go wrong 10 miles out.

    I practice shooting from my kayak all the time. How else can you get better at hitting a fast moving target well sitting on your butt in a wobblely tube.

    Now go ahead and tell me it's illegal. I know people will.

    And no I do not normally sit in my kayak on the trap or skeet range to practice.
    Take the warning labels off. Darwin will solve the problem.

    Oh,yeah,jump shooting ducks from a kayak or a canoe is an art in itself.
    Society needs to stop bending to the will of the delusional.

    Fifty years ago boaters were told to break glass containers and perforate both ends of tin cans before throwing them overboard in deep water. Dad's 38 S&W worked great for this in Georgian Bay and the Trent system. Accepted and legal back then.....

    Back then many things were acceptable , back in the 50's I used to take my shotgun and ammunition on my bicycle to high school, lock it all up in my locker and after school we would go hunting, sometimes even a teacher or two would join my buddy and I.

    Try that in this day and age, swat team , handcuffs and jail plus school lock down is what you would see.

    In the mid-70s, the middle school I went to (grades 7 and 8's - so 12 and 13 year olds) had a rifle range in the basement. School owned the rifles (.22 cooey's) but you had to bring your own ammo.

    Our High School also had a range just previous to me being there , we used the range at the local Armories, how times have changed, and not necessarily for the better
