LOL, best one yet, where do you guys get this stuff? Actually FLETC has 3 lead ranges and gloves or masks are not required or recommended. Only the used cleaning supplies go into "special bins" and that's an EPA requirement. The targets go in the trash and the brass gets recycled.

What agency are you with again?
For the last 11 years I have worked for FLETC. The 22 years prior to coming to FLETC, I worked for 2 different Federal agencies and 1 Local.

How about you?

Correction, the dept issues Critical Duty, I was mistaken. The reason i thought they issued Defence is there was a couple of boxes in the console of my FTO's cruiser, turns out they were some personal boxes he had purchased for his wifes gun.
