    +1 on mosquitos! We get some Biggins in my neck of the woods. Game and Fish told me that it I keep shooting 'em I'm going to have to get a hunting license.

    Thanks!
    You guys lost sight of the OP. He was concerned about his young son getting exposed to lead. You guys may have been a little rough on him. Let me say...

    I'm going to guess this is your first kid. Most folks including myself fret over the first one. After 2-3 or more you realize how tough and resilient they are.

    He would have to shoot thousands upon thousands of rounds for the lead to be a real danger. I don't know where you live but if you buy products also sold in California almost everything says it contains lead or other substances that are hazardous to your health and known to cause birth defects.

    Lead is a definite danger but to try and totally eliminate all contact is futile. Better to teach your son basic safe practices. Don't eat or drink while handling lead. Stay upwind or if shooting indoors make sure there's proper ventilation. Wash up after shooting including your face. Life has enough worries just use common sense hope for the best and don't sweat the small stuff.

    The common warning is not to smoke while handling lead. I sometime wonder what's more hazardous to your health possibly ingesting lead off the cigarette or the cigarette smoke.

    Where ever you shot you'll be upwind unless the wind is in your face. What I meant was up wind of others shooting.

    Will lead kill you faster than a Cheese Burger? The air pollution in some American cities is equal to inhaling 40 cigarettes per day. The insecticide on your apple is destroying your liver. You are killing others with your gas burning car. The air in your home maybe slowly killing your family with nuclear seepage into your basement?
    And you are worried about the lead residue from a .22 pistol ?

    Not really his fault, we're a lot like in the Matrix movie where the matrix government is only showing you what he wants you to see and hear and telling you what to think You have to want to wake up from the matrix to see that it's just an elaborate lie otherwise the ones telling you it's a lie are crazy and you avoid them

    They say time flies when you're having fun, it should also say times flies faster when you're old.
