Default Do guns and preggo's mix?

I'm about to get my Glock 19 on Tuesday and I plan on going to the range on Friday. My wife also wants to go but she is 5 1/2 months pregnant. We're going to a Dr's office on Thursday but I wanted to ask here.

I'm sure there's a few women members here and might have a few words.

Thanks.

Your doctor will know best.
IMO the only concern I would see is possible exposure to lead dust or vapors in a poorly ventilated indoor range.
Of course my opinion and $1 may get you a cup of coffee

I think if you can fit some ear muffs on the baby you're good to go.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Personally, and with no scientific knowledge whatsoever, I would not do it. Just the fear that the noise could somehow damage the babies unprotected and developing nervous systems would give me pause. You are wearing protection, the baby isn't. Another concern for me would be the smoke and possible lead dust in the air regardless of how good the ventilation system is...why take a chance. That's purely my opinion your Doctor may say otherwise and he is the expert.

I don't understand your question, if it is a question. If you are asking if a pregnant woman should have a gun, then the answer is NO!! If you are asking if the noise from the gun will harm the fetus, then...perhaps have your wife shield her belly with a pillow or coat. If you are asking if your preggo wife will like shooting, then the answer is HELLZ YEA!

I am not a woman, and I fail to see how this is just a statement for the ladies. I feel for you, as I know how a pregnant woman can be, and remember, it is not her fault. It is your fault for now and forever.

Congrats on becoming a Daddy. If this is your first, then you have no idea of the joy, pride and worry that is to rule the rest of your life. If this is not your first, then what the heck were you thinking?

All kidding aside, let us know what the Doctor says. Keep in mind that the Doc might be anti-gun and biased.

My question is the noise.

...and thanks.

Asking medical advice on the interwebz is not nearly as stupid as giving medical advice....

Dude! Pregnancy + raging hormones + a gun?

Ok guys, it's my gun but she wants to shoot it. Just like when you get a new car they want to drive it.

You can't blame her. If anything, I'm glad she's up for it. I wouldn't want her to be all wimpy about it.

But of course I'm leaning towards not letting her. Like I said, I was just asking.

Encourage her to wait until after delivery.
Try to get the idea across that having patience can lead to great rewards.
