National Public Radio (NPR) published an informative article last year in regards to the hazards of lead dust at firing ranges.  In the high-speed photograph above, you can see the cloud of tiny lead particles trailing the bullet as it exits the barrel of the gun.  It is an eye-opening look at the moment a gun fires and especially the lead fumes which normally aren’t seen by the naked eye.   Click here to see more amazing high speed ballistic photography from artist Herra Kuulapaa.

BE SAFE at firing ranges!  Make sure the range is correctly ventilated.  While at the range, wash hands & face before eating, drinking, or smoking.  Wash hands & face again before leaving the range.  Also, wash range clothes separately from the rest of the family’s clothes.  Simply washing with ordinary soap & water will not significantly reduce the spread of contamination or the danger of ingestion.  So BE SAFE by using CLEAN-ALL HEAVY METALS HAND & BODY SOAP – The latest in soap technology, formulated to bond with lead residue so it simply rinses away.  It is also an effective way to keep surfaces and laundry clean & safe.
