12. yeah
Edited on Fri Sep-26-03 09:45 AM by Romulus
there are "green" ammo alternatives being produced right now. I think they use tungsten or something. They are almost twice as much in price as the non-"green" ammo - hopefully the price will drop in the future. Some ranges have completely banned the use of non-"green" ammo. Others don't care what you bring. And there are still more, like the range I am joining in my new state of residence x( , that require you to only shoot with ammo that you buy from them and that you have to completely use up while you are there (apparently a county ordinance/agreement before they would let the range operate) - and they don't offer "green" ammo.

I became aware of this lead issue last year. I wear a respirator rated for lead when I go to the range. The range employees wear one just like it. I get some double-takes, but people used to look at hearing-protection wearers the same way. Now those same "lookers" ask you to repeat everything you say to them. :P
