    Lead is dead

    Going to do my bit for the environment and follow the lead of the RSPB and FC Scotland and go lead free. Its the future, no point trying to argue the toss. Lead is poisonous and expensive, copper is just expensive.

    What gave you to believe that lead as used by shooters in bullets is poisonous?

    Muddy Springer,

    Copper is poisonous, just ask the trees.

    I have a four metre lead run into my house off the water main and it isn't "classed" as dangerous.

    Just type in lead&poison into google. Simples.

    "Although lead poisoning is one of the oldest known work and environmental hazards, the modern understanding of the small amount of lead necessary to cause harm did not come about until the latter half of the 20th century. No safe threshold for lead exposure has been discovered—that is, there is no known amount of lead that is too small to cause the body harm"

    Would that be a requirement in St Vincent and the Grenadines then?
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Just because the internet says so doesn't make it true.

    The element lead as it appears in bullets is insoluble. How might it get into your body to do you harm?

    Hope your going to stop using a vehicle thats pollutes the environment and not use a plane to fly anywhere or use a central heating system or buy any products that are made from oil derived products.
    Hey but maybe you are the only Carbon neutral person around.
    RSBP-FC what a joke they are. They use poisons in the form of baited and spraying.
