Your pores open up with warm water? Kinda like using cold water to wash off fiberglass?

Cold water keeps the pores on your skin closed up. Hot water opens then promoting the contaminate to seep in and infect whatever.

Here's my question.....


It's best then, to have your pregnant wife to abstain from shooting, until after birth?

That's probably the best idea, yes.

Lead does not absorb thru normal, intact skin. The routes into the body are inhalation, ingestion (eating it) and injection (POW!)

Sources of lead when shooting-
(1) Handling exposed lead bullets, and not washing your hands with soap and water before eating, smoking, drinking or applying makeup (guys- that includes chapstick)
(2) Inhaling airborne lead. This can come from lead vaporized from bullet on firing, lead spatter from hitting a hard backstop- but MOST comes from the primer (lead azide)
(3) Ingestion- not washing face and hands after shooting- then eating finger food (Big mac, large fry)

Um- BTW, I teach lead safety in construction, folks. And I keep a bottle of water and a hotel bottle of shampoo in my range bag. Couple of drops of shampoo on DRY hands, rub it around good, attention to nails, THEN add a splash of water, lather up, then rinse.

Ammo labeled NT is non-toxic- no exposed lead bullet, non-lead primer. Shooting indoor range? Should feel air moving from behind you towards target. AWAY from your breathing zone.

Due to SERIOUS effects of lead on unborn child, shooting would not be a recommended activity for pregnant people.

The rest of you- go wash your hands!
