Shooting Range Safety for Pregnant or Breastfeeding Women

When training for a firearms license, pregnant or breastfeeding women are required to complete their training at a certified shooting range. Our recommendations are:

  • Week 24 to delivery, avoid going to a shooting range because of concern to the fetus's hearing.
  • Up to Week 24 - exposure to lead in shooting range poses a risk:
    • Shoot in an open or closed shooting range with appropriate ventilation systems
    • Wear a hat, shirt with long sleeves and closed shoes
    • Wear a disposable respirator
    • Use safety headphones
    • Use safety glasses
    • Wash hands with soap immediately after shooting
    • Wash clothes and shower immediately when you arrive home
    • Use lead-free ammunition
