So it's ok for us all to have vaping devices if we just get our shooting partners to stand at the side of us & blow fume ??? I can't really remember seeing shooters blowing smoke/fume after approaching the peg, most do it just before picking up the gun anyway. I can't see your approach working to reduce any possible problem so I see why you voted for option 1

Personally Id find it much quicker glancing at a piece of wool on my gun just before I got down prone than trying to find a suitable bit of grass/leaves to pick up & throw.
