I didn’t realize until recently what a hazard lead is to a shooter’s health. The threat is real. Schatz produced a seminal brief on the cacophony of bad stuff your body is exposed to on the range (deadly stuff from arsenic to mercury). It’s definitely worth checking out. I’m going to limit myself to lead […]
