So DH has been wanting to teach me to shoot and his aunt just got a smaller lighter gun that he wants me to try. I'm 15 weeks pregnant and it's an outdoor range. I know the big concern is lead exposure. Is it safe to shoot a few bullets while pregnant?

I just shot my cousin's AR15 about 2 wks ago! And we are having a 30th birthday part for Hubby next month that will involve shooting a variety of shotguns, handguns, and rifles. I will be 23 1/2 wks then! I always shot while pregnnat (even ran after a few deer while preggo) Its safe :)

I don't think there's any harm in it.

Perfectly safe, I went hunting numberous times and shot our guns at least weekly all while pregnant.

I was 4 months pregnant here :O)

I've also done plenty of shooting preggo. I don't think it's an issue at all.

I sure hope its safe. Ill be 7 months when deer season opens and don't plan on missing it.
