My Husband and I are settled on a specific rifle we want to buy and I am dying to get out to the range. I am just curious though..do they allow pregnany women on the range?

They prefer no because of the lead. Outdoors should be fine, wash your hands really good afterwards.

awwww. do you really want him there with you? only because you can go by yourself. I have never been on a range myself. I have observed but never participated so I want him there for my first time but after that I won't mind going by myself.

I want him to go with me and make it a date night or something. We met in the military so I think it'd just be nice to reminisce :)

that's awesome! I agree that would be a good thing to do together since that is where you met. My Husband is a former Marine and I am just infatuated with the military period but can't join because I am choosing to be home with my kids instead but yea I think that would be a great idea. Keep working him..maybe some time he will budge :)

I think it would depend on if you are outside and the type of rifle. I wanted to go shooting my husband A.R. But Dh was to nervous about it until i talked to my doctor. I have heard yes and i have heard no.

Yea we are interested in an AR-15 and it turns out now he is not sure if we will be able to do it before or after the baby due to financing so we are still working that piece out. But just wanted to know just in case. I think the one range I know of is indoor but am sure there is an outdoor one some where near by as I am in a very woodsy area and hear shots go off all the time..just a matter of finding it.

I've never been to a shooting range. I did shoot a lot less while pregnant. You should just call ahead and ask about their rules.

I thought you meant driving range. I golf still. No guns in our house.
