Abstract
Exposure to lead (7439921) (Pb) was investigated at the Federal Reserve Bank (SIC-9999) in Atlanta, Georgia, on July 30, 1980, in response to a request from the office of the Assistant Vice President of the bank. Personal and general air samples were collected in the firing range room and air velocity was measured. Three employees participated in shooting 38 caliber pistols, a shotgun, and a 44 magnum carbine. Ammunition was analyzed. No Pb was found in any of the samples. Air flow rates ranged from 75 and 140 feet per minute, and was adequate to maintain good ventilation. The use of zinc bullets eliminated atmospheric lead in the indoor firing range. The authors conclude use of this type of ammunition is an effective prevention of Pb exposure.
