CCW Class for Pregnant Wife
I have a friend at work that is a CCW instructor and has offered to give the class to my wife. As the subject reads, she will be 13-14 weeks prego with our 3rd baby during the class. She would like to take the class, but there are two potential safety issues that I was hoping you all could chime in on.
1 - Exposure to lead, gun smoke, etc. during the qualifications.
2 - Excessive noise for our baby in utero.
The range is indoor in the instructor's basement, but he has adquate HEPA ventilation, informing that he has '10 air exchanges per minute' with his filtering system. For the noise factor, he has offered her to use a .22 with a muffler/suppressor, so I think noise won't be a problem (provided there aren't others around shooting non-muzzled handguns).
I know it will ultimately come down to what my wife and I are personally comfortable with, but I'd be interested to hear the opinions of the instructors and other knowledgeable folks out there. Opinions from the ladyfolk would also be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
