Are gloves allowed?

Post by hp246 on Mon Feb 12, 2018 4:18 pm

Just got my blood levels test back.  Not good.  Definately going to need to take steps to continue shooting.  I shoot only at the club level.  In my CAS matches golves are prohibited.  Are there any restrictions about using gloves for BE?  I'm thinking about using the nitrile gloves.  I've started using them in practice.

Get some D-lead towels and soap. My regimen is to wash my hands with Hand Cleaner (ex. Go-Jo) and then to use cold water and D-Lead soap. It doesn't take much. If it is impossible to wash my hands I have the D-lead towels and use those. 

The lead is entering through your mouth or nose. don't touch those areas while shooting. Also, what is the ventilation like where you shoot?

No, they are not allowed.  It used to be rule 3.11, which has been deleted from the current rule book, but is still listed in the index.  It is now rule 5.2 (b) under artificial support.

Start wearing a N100 mask. $10 bucks at any big box store.

are you shooting at an indoor range?

ingestion is the issue with lead, not necessarily contact.

As long as you thoroughly wash your hands with the appropriate "stuff" and do so before touching any food etc, then contact on the hands is not an issue. It is all about the air you breath. Several of my shooting buddies have gone to breathing filters. Who knows, maybe after my next test I will too. (last one I was only a 6 but have been shooting at an older indoor range a lot more)

Thanks guys.  Yep.  Respirator is in effect as of today.  Much handwashing is in my future.

Remember to wash with COLD water.  Hot/warm water causes the pores to open so that you would possibly absorb more lead. Rolling Eyes
