There was more to it than meets the eye. First, you only got one shot, so you better make it count. You couldn't reload it in the boat but had to go back to shore to do it. Second, you had to skull the boat out close enough for a good shot without scaring the ducks away.
So they make the law about how large a gun you could use, 10ga, when all that was needed were laws about how many water foul could be taken. There are a number of guys with old 8ga guns who would love to be able to shoot a couple of ducks or geese with them, but can't. Funny how you can use a .410 to hunt ducks with, and wound as many as possible, but not use a larger gun and kill em dead.
