CO exposure today from new source

My Sensorcon personal CO alarm got a workout today. Kept going off peaking around 56ppm before I had to turn it off. Turned it back on when I left the gun range. Range had large ventilation fans running but I guess no MakeUp Air.
Live and learn.

    Without much air flow, probably airborne lead dust to be inhaled as well.

    Indoor gun ranges need a lot of outside air!

    Yes, all good points. Horrible IAQ. I posted this to show we breathe horrible air all the time but are usually unaware. My alarm goes off in most restaurants.

    Yeah you don't want to get dizzy when firing. Where do you go Bob, Field & Stream? Actually pretty nice for Archery, for a change of pace.

    There was an error rendering this rich post.

    Working outdoors today downtown Wilmington, DE. Installing a unit in exterior wall of commercial building with excavator operating 50 ft. away. Guess what went off.

    Got Chinese take-out. Guess what went off when I went in to pick it up? Rough neighborhood. Outer 1" ballistic glass with opening, 8" air gap then second glass with opening about 2 ft offset so no straight line of fire. He passed the food through the gap. Nice neighborhood if they'd clean up the used syringes and close the curbside pharmacies.

    Targetmaster after the gun show. I don't do bow. They don't have magazines. Glock 30 .45 ACP, 9mm, and AR-15. First time teaching my new son in law.
