I was reading about how the EU is thinking of reducing the lead used in ammunition because it’s polluting the environment. I wonder if regular lead exposure at the firing range is addling people’s brains.

    Indoor ranges get checked for lead exposure for staff, who are exposed to far more lead dust than customers. Unless the ventilation system is not adequate, lead exposure is not an issue at indoor gun ranges.

      And even outdoor ranges sometimes have large ventilation fans that blow across the firing lane.
