D-lead Lead Test Kit

Guns are dangerous. And I mean more than just 'shoot yourself in the foot' dangerous, I mean erectile dysfunction dangerous.

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. When you fire a round, the combustion vaporizes lead used in primers and the bullet as it travels down the barrel. At the other end of the range, large amounts of lead are thrown out from bullet splash and target spalling. This is by far the highest concentration of lead, and a big risk of exposure, especially for anyone who has to collect targets and casings after shooting.


Lead can easily be inhaled or ingested without even realizing. Once in the body it gets into the bloodstream, and from there into organs and bones where 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.

Once you are poisoned, removing lead from the body is difficult and often ineffective for large quantities. 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.

With all that lead floating around and sticking to things, it’s easy to spread it outside the range. Dust on yourself and range equipment can transfer to your car seat, steering wheel, and phone. The bottoms of your shoes pick up lots of lead from the ground. In short, lead dust can travel fast, and to places you wouldn’t think about. The D-Lead Test Kit can tell you if you’re bringing home any lead, and where it’s going. It’s a great way to test out your lead reduction methods in real-time.

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.

A guide for testing methods can be found here.

Video guides are also available for skin testing and fabric testing instructions.
