It may be the law, but it gets a big fat FAIL for common sense and intuitive deduction. The federal government backed off firearm restrictions in National Parks which are arguably more sensitive environments, but left the same provision intact for the surfaces of water bodies? How does that reflect any logic whatsoever?

It's the government; common sense and intuitive deduction are not applicable. :banghead:

I don't know if any "carry-able" pistols would have much effect on a large gator. However the noise might scare them off or at least delay their approach until you can get out of the area.

Best suggestion, a jon-boat, or even a canoe, would be less likely to tip over but you have a bigger problem. Lake Sam Rayburn is Army CoE. A firearm in your boat would be a federal crime if I understand the laws correctly.
