Good one! LOL
Nice catch, I'm in Eagle Mountain. That's the fire some target shooters started while shooting at exploding targets with extremely dry brush all around. Idiots!

Yes they did. It was two guys & last I heard, they had both been saddled with a nice stiff fine...I forget how much it was.
Since this is a photo thread, I should include one. Here I am being attacked my a man-eating Pitbull!



Here he is a little while later.

My daughter brought her boy friend and 2 of his buddies to shoot - - - they found some incendiary 12 gauge rounds at a gun show and set my backstop on fire - - - dumb**ses were shooting a 12 gauge on a 25 yard pistol range - - - My daughter came over and took control and I guess they thought that little USMC Lance Corporal was going to pound each of them in the ground one at a time.

The three of them had all served 4 years each in the Army and are all in their late 20s and should know better.

The time before that he came without my daughter and brought some of his friends ( playing the big shot as I donít charge him ) and they made and left a big mess - - - discarded targets blowing in the wind, soda cans and cigarette butts allover.

They can no longer come unless the range is open for business and they will follow all rules or be barred!

My range safety rules are posted and this is rule 3

"3. No eating, drinking, smoking, putting on lipstick or chapstick!"

This is to keep you safe from lead poisoning.

From the OSHA handbook

More importantly, the chemical commonly used in primers is lead styphnate, and detonating the primer discharges a cloud of molecular lead compounds. So the air on a shooting range -- even an extremely well ventilated range -- tends to contain a lot of lead, both as dust, and as gas. It settles in large amounts on the floor, and on other horizontal surfaces as well. Even if the range passes OSHA standards for airborne lead contamination (which many don't), you will still often find yourself standing in a cloud of lead filled gun smoke as the air currents eddy around you. All the while you are breathing in lead, about 30-50% of which will dissolve from your lungs into your bloodstream. If you have any doubts about this, just blow your nose when you leave the range after a lengthy shooting session. That black stuff in the mucous is the residue of gun smoke, and it contains a lot of lead.

The powder residue you get all over your hands also contains a lot of lead. Left on your hands, some of this can actually be absorbed directly through your skin. More importantly, if you eat with this residue still on your hands, you will contaminate your food with a significant amount of lead. You can also contaminate your food with residue from around your mouth, particularly if you have a mustache. Your breathing concentrates lead around your nose and upper lip, and a mustache will act as a filter to trap the particles and gases. Your sandwich or pizza will then carry those particles into your mouth. This is particularly important to realize, because although only about 10% of ingested elemental lead is absorbed, nearly 100% of ingested lead salts -- formed when you ignite the primer -- are absorbed. So ingestion is a very efficient way to absorb certain forms of lead.

Food for thought.

This is why I don't use the local indoor range. I've been in there once, and the air tasted sweet as soon add I walked in. Screw that crap.

My range is outdoors and I purposefully tried to get as much ventilation as possible while outdoors but the lead will settle onto any surface it can! Shooting benches, gun cases, any place dust can settle will hold lead!

Remember the lead from the primer is more hazardous to the shooter than the lead from the projectile and is often not given any thought at all!

Many of the recently built indoor ranges have great ventilation and are cleaned daily and would be great places to shoot - - - I donít have the money to build one like that and Iím not sure the local population is dense enough to support the expense!

I have been to some of the older indoor ranges and mostly it is a one time trip for me.
