Wow. Future generation are really going to think we were stupid shooting lead all over the place.

A note on gun safety is that shooting ranges actually have high levels of lead dust and lead vapor from bullets fragmenting at high velocity. Just be careful when taking your kids so they don't ingest lead dust.
