Exposure to lead is a natural byproduct of shooting firearms. On Target Shooting Sports regularly maintains the air filtration system in our range, but that doesn’t mean you will not be exposed to lead while shooting.
Therefore, anyone who is pregnant or believes they could be pregant, should NOT enter the shooting range.
If you’re pregnant, lead poisoning can put you at risk for miscarriage. It can damage your unborn child’s brain, kidneys, and nervous system. It could also cause learning or behavior problems.
At very high levels, lead poisoning can be fatal.
