IMO the whole asbestos fear in general is overblown. I stepped on a pipe, in a steam tunnel under the quad at MSU, that was wrapped in a foamy material that was almost certainly asbestos; this stuff formed a cloud in the tunnel. I'm still breathing though...well, so far.
Because of the toxic roof softnose lead, given to me by an old friend.

I will be shooting from a tower on a level with the pidgeons and will not take any shot with the roof as a background. Will also take care to be waring the correct PPE such as FFP3 mask etc.
Good. Just looking out for your well-being and that of others around you, hope you don't mind.

Default Go to Rio!

Try Rio 12ga. or .410 shotshells with #12 shot - same size at .22 rat shot.

Avoid the light fixtures and you won't have to worry about holes in the roof.

I attended the funeral of my old boss five months ago. He died of asbestos based lung cancer. I worked with his son as an AC installer. His son and I are both waiting for our time as a chemo kid. My company is sending me to yet another asbestos class next month. Knowing what I know about the sh1t I tell you... DO NOTHING THAT WILL BREAK UP THE ASBESTOS.. Asbestos shingles are not harmful unless you bust them up. You may be of the age where the exposure will never have a chance to affect you. But the dust stays behind for others to breath. It may not be much but it is accumulative. The people in that barn the most after the asbestos becomes friable (breathable particles) will add more potential damage every time they are exposed.
