    Julie, there was so much information in this pod cast I think I’m going to need a printed transcript and read and study this again later, wow, very well researched and presented, seriously you may want to consider making this a downloadable document like your traveling check list, you put to much effort into this not to pass this “forward” (see how I stole and repurposed a progressive/liberal term, part of my secret plan to take back America)

    I have a question as to how you handle shooting and then going home. I think I remember that you have children. Do you switch shoes and change clothes before going home? Do you constantly use delead wipes?
    My husband and I are about to open an indoor shooting range and lead exposure is heavy on my mind. We have a 16mo now and plan to have another baby. I’m concerned about containing the lead in the retail and office space. An I’m worried about

    worried about working there full time and getting pregnant and also is tracking it home with us as well. I’ll talk with the NSSF but wanted any advice you have as well. Thank you!

    Jen2005 When traveling to and from the range you might want to pack a towel and set it on your seat and then bring that in with you when you remove your range clothes. We don’t wear our shoes in the house and I keep “range” shoes away from the other shoes.

    Jen2005 Congrats on your little one and best wishes with your second. I would suggest using a respirator for when you are on the range to keep your exposure level down. I would think vigilant cleaning of the range and retail space would help keep lead levels down but NSSF would be a great place to start in learning more about range clean up. You might also want to talk to other indoor ranges as well. Hope that helps some!

    julieG11 Jen2005 thank you. I have a feeling i’ll be the lead cleaning nazi to make sure we overkill with our cleaning proceedures. Lol. when you were pregnant, where you worried about being around a range for the lead exposure? And did you switch to lead free bullets while pg? I intend to avoid shooting for the most part while pregnant, except when no ones shooting and I have our suppressors. Or maybe not all together. Not sure yet.

    Jen2005 It never hurts to be careful 🙂 For me, I stopped shooting in the first trimester. I was very much concerned over lead exposure and when hearing develops that I didn’t want to take any chances that might harm the baby. Now, I know several women who have shot during their pregnancies and they delivered happy, healthy babies. For me and my husband, we wanted to eliminate as many risks as possible and took a much more conservative route. Lead free ammo reduces your exposure to lead, but there are other contaminants in that sort of ammo that you may want to check on and still wear a respirator. Just something to keep in mind 🙂
