The match director at a local club that I shoot monthly matches at will not allow barrels to be used to conceal targets. His reasoning is that the expense to dispose of the barrels in the future, once they have lead in them, will be a problem. Has anyone heard of this being an issue? I would think that it would take a lot of seasons for the barrels to be shot enough to need to be replaced. Even then is lead contamination even an issue with them? I want to approach the board about changing this. Without using barrels to hide targets, it really makes for a boring match. This club has great potential with everything else it has going for it.
