Michigan’s ONLY Lead-Free Range
Lead exposure at gun ranges is “a serious problem and we think it could be quite widespread,” said Dr. Elana Page, medical officer for NIOSH.
The risk isn’t limited to range employees, Page added.
“Some firing ranges cater to children, they have birthday parties and special events,” she said. “I think it’s really important that people are aware they can have significant exposure at a firing range, even for members of the general public.”

If this is how the people who clean lead exposure range bullet traps dress for their health (you don’t have to be a scientist or even look too close to understand what we mean); then how in the ‘WORLD’ are you supposed to be healthy and safe from LEAD contaminants when shooting your lead ammunition at the range you now shoot at?
Well then, you could always buy a HEPA Compliant full body suit like these fellas to continue to shoot at your ‘USUALLY’ frequented range!
Maybe there’s a lesson to be learned here from the OSHA Regulated workers pictured here –

Nonlead Ammunition in California
Effective July 1, 2019, non-lead ammunition is required when taking any wildlife with a firearm anywhere in California.
In October 2013, Assembly Bill 711 was signed into law requiring the use of non-lead ammunition when taking any wildlife with a firearm in California. This law required the California Fish and Game Commission to adopt regulations that phased-in the statute’s requirements by July 1, 2019.
CDFW conducted extensive public outreach during 2014 and proposed regulations that phased-in the non-lead requirement. This outreach effort included question and answer sessions at sportsmen’s shows, meetings with hunting organizations, and a series of eight public workshops throughout the state.
CDFW then presented draft regulations, as modified by public input from these workshops, to the Fish and Game Commission. In April 2015, the Fish and Game Commission adopted CDFW’s proposed regulations.
