Many cruise liners used to advertise clay shooting as one of the attractions - don't know if they still do?

Still a lot would depend on country ship is registered in - if in international waters etc etc!!!

I have one thanks Manos.

You never said you were shooting clays. Just pointing out Rough Shooting using a dog to work the game will be illegal.
For your information I was shooting clays, vermin and game aged 7. That was a long time ago.

No there's an idea.

You guys remember the intro scenes from this slapstick-movie "top secret" starring Val Kilmer where they shot clay while riding down big waves on surfboards?! When I first saw the movie about 15 years ago I thought this was the most stupid thing one could ever come up with- well .......

greetings,
Wolfie

Yep, the 'Top Secret' film had some great scenes with guys on surfboards shooting at clays. I watched it last week.

Just thought I might chip in as I am always being hammered by the HSE regarding safe working practice regarding firearms and explosives. I imagine one point that may be raised by your insurance company if not any other interested party with the authority to intervene and indeed other people on board - a RIB although very seaworthy always bob around a fair bit and there will be a point at which having a fun lovin' passenger with a loaded shotgun concentrating on the target standing unsuported on the deck of a very unsteady boat. Would you really want to be next to someone ready to fire when a wake, random wave etc rocks the boat. I am far from qualifying as a kill-joy but there are more suitable places to stand with a gun than the deck of a RIB.

As a registered firearms dealer I am usually aware of most legal consequences of usage and possession of firearms and shotguns. I am unclear why the sea would not constitute a public place and as such the wielding of a shotgun may cause the local powers that be to uphold some objections. I shall chat to my local liason officer to clarify as we never have many problems getting permission to fire blank firing weapons on film locations.

I shall publish my findings if interesting.

Cheers

certainly agree with Scottydog, this has the potential to be a very bad day out, these 2 sports just don't mix IMHO.

More lead shot for the wildfowl to poison themselves with.

Good point Scotty D and your comments on your findings will be most appreciated. Bear in mind the point on public place but take into account freedom of the seas (conv. Geneva if I remember right). This then goes on to georaphical limits etc etc.

JW, point accepted on lead shot but most clay shooters are very dedicated game shooters (as I am, including the dogs !) and lead shot is now out on most shoots.

Pleased to hear we have some interested shooters on the site.

Cheers
