Keeping The Lead Out
Bellevue Gun Club strives to prevent lead contamination concerns through employing the best air system available, regular cleaning schedules, sticky mats in the corridors, and supplying D-Lead hand soap.

You, the shooter can also help to prevent elevated lead concerns - When you leave the range, blow your nose, and wash your face and hands immediately with cold soapy water. Thoroughly cleanse the facial area around your mouth, particularly if you have a mustache or beard. And for obvious reasons, blow your nose before you wash your face. Try to wear an outer garment, like a jumpsuit or coverall, which you can either have washed after each range session, or leave in your locker. This will prevent carrying the lead dust on your clothing into your car and home. Likewise, have a pair of shoes to change into after you get off the range. If you do go home wearing the same outer clothes you wore on the range, change them immediately, and put them in the washer. Washing one's hair before bedtime is also a good idea. Your hair can hold a lot of dust, and you will transfer it to your pillow every night. Again, these precautions are particularly important if you have young children at home. And finally, have your blood lead level checked every six months to make sure the precautions you are observing are adequate.

All of this may sound like a pain, but following these precautions will greatly reduce the likelihood of lead poisoning. Thanks and safe shooting.
