    Really though, I'm a father of 3 so you ain't surprising me. I think the issues with lead dust would be more of a concern with exposed skin and outer clothing. I understand that hot brass in cleavage isn't a wonderful experience...but I doubt there are many women that choose to shoot topless to avoid it. IMHO, I would think that a woman that is breast-feeding would be better served to just wear an over-shirt (or a t-shirt under regular shirt), and not worry about looking good by displaying the mommy-boobs at the range and opt for a closed neck shirt or buttoned up shirt.

    Haha sorry... kind of figured this was mostly parents/prospective parents who have been there, done that! Three kids, you know how it goes... eventually you just gotta do what you gotta do.

    And yeah, think so too... I always wear t-shirts with high necks. Besides, who would be willing to comment on the looks or attire of a sleep-deprived, armed, new mother just trying to relieve stress and get some practice in?

    Don't get me wrong. Mommy boobs are a wonderful gift, I just think the firing line probably isn't the smartest place to show 'em off

    Definitely not (hot brass + any type of cleavage = no good!)... but possibly she didn't anticipate the... um, expansion... properly, and hasn't gotten new shirts yet. LMAO

    Babies and noises

    If pregnant women cant be in gun ranges for fear of damaging the childs hearing,, then they shouldn't be able to be in cars with loud sound systems either.....

    Actually there are a couple of possible concerns. Sound is one, but also lead ingestion. This url will take you to an article hosted on Tennessee Tech University's web site entitled, "Shooting while pregnant: Dangerous or not?"
    See what you think.

    Unfortunately, there are no definitive studies that clearly answerthis question.

    When this topic first came up this author contacted several respecteddoctors for their opinion (including the co-author of this article)as to whether a pregnant student should participate in a firearmstraining
    course for women. The doctors we contacted seemed to agree thatthere was no reason why she shouldn't shoot. We knew the rangewas lead-free and the ammunition was frangible, and with thatproviso, the doctors all agreed.

    Then someone brought up the question of the noise, and no oneseemed to have any answers as to whether that could harm the baby,and thus began a quest to find out the truth about shooting andpregnancy.

    How many pregnant mothers do YOU know that would want to subject themselves and their baby to that study on the off chance that it is safe?

    Thought it would come in handy.
