Lead-based ammunition is the second largest use of lead in the United States. Lead is released at nearly every stage of firing a gun. From the gas blowback from firing the gun (especially if firing suppressed) to handling the steel targets after a range session, the potential for lead contamination is everywhere.
Lead can easily be inhaled or ingested without even realizing. Once in the body it can be stored for decades. Lead poisoning affects everyone differently. It can be fast and aggressive, or slow with few noticeable symptoms and is known to cause neurological issues like mood disorders, memory lapses, and even the dreaded wang dangle.
Keeping the lead from getting inside your body is the best way to prevent poisoning, and that means making sure it’s not covering the outside of your body.
Regular wipes are great for cleaning off dirt and grease, but they don’t quite cut it when it comes to lead and heavy metals. Regular wipes don’t pick up heavy metals, instead, just smearing the metals around. D-Wipes use a special solution to break the static bond of the heavy metals and lift the particles up off the surface, trapping them in the specially designed fabric of the wipe. In tests, D-Lead wipes and soaps have been shown to remove about 99% of lead from a surface, while regular wipes only remove around 70%.
Lead poisoning is a serious matter that we all often overlook. It’s easy to just rinse off the gunpowder on your hands and call it good, but it’s not that simple. The lead you carry doesn't just harm you, it can harm your friends, family, and anyone you interact with, especially children. It’s like wiping your shoes, it just takes a minute, but you don’t want to track dirt on the nice carpet.

I use these to wipe my face and arms with after using my suppressors.
Best equipment for wacking people
It’s me, your favorite mob enforcer Kyrese. Last week I talked to our mutual friend Tony Tortellino and he told me about how Big Edd went down over having gunpowder and lead on his hands. We can't keep having that happen, so I spoke to our other mutual friends at the Kommando store, turns out they sell wipes that get lead and gunpowder off your hands. I put in an order and boom they arrived. Anytime I go out to “get work done” I take them with me to clean up. They work great and leave my hands cleaner than before that poor shmuck spotted me.
