    Anyone shoot here? It looks like a hole-in-the-wall place by the freeway, and stopping in looks about the same inside.

    I went there weekly for 6 months when I first started shooting competitively. At my yearly physical I asked to doctor to test my blood for lead. It came out to 42 ug/dL, the OSHA maximum is 20. I stopped shooting at that indoor range, kept shooting outdoors and reloading, and 5 weeks later when I got retested my lead level was 26 and a year later it was 6. They have no ventilation system at the range to remove lead from the air other than the holes in the ceiling. A few trips to the range won't kill you but I won't shoot there regularly anymore or bring children.

    I used to go there alot in the 90's but after getting swept by a 12ga from some OG, I decided to go elsewhere. And yes I agree with a previous poster about the crappy ventilation system.

    I work in that area almost daily. Never shot there, but I agree not the best (or worse) nieghborhood, and have also heard you can look through the bullet holes in the ceiling.
