Welcome to the club my GSP doesn't do great in the water either. It is mostly my fault because i hunt upland and haven't worked him in the water much. He does better if there is another dog to compiet with.

As far as the gun shyness i leave him at home if iam going to the range only because dogs will normal only tolerate the loud noise because they are getting a reward afterwards. ie dead bird. You might notice your dog getting excited right after the first couple of shots and then become scared because he realizes theres nothing in it for him.

I am no professional trainer by any means and someone else might have a better answer for you.
