You don't get lead poisoning from bird shot. What happens is the it falls to the bottom of ponds/riverbeds and the birds eat the shot and get the poisoning. The only way lead shot could affect you is if you ingested it.
my dad is an olympian fencer and i myself was about to join GEBA this week. i always felt i would be in his shadow if i took it up but my desire to do it is greater.
