A bit strange, as the amount of lead added by airgun is marginal, but it is extra lead, which is not permitted by governement for that specific location. Even FT targets in containers to collect the lead was not allowed, leaving only non-toxic pellets as alternative to keep shooting there.Rob
They should try what we do here, were I shoot the field is vacuum cleaned and this way a large part of the lead is removed and recycled.
