    Well they say when you need an answer go to the folks that will know!! My son has gone to his first duty station at Ft. Riley, and I've sent him his fishing poles but I want to send him a care package of sinkers, jigs, spinners etc.

    Here in Vermont anything less than 1/2 ounce has to be lead free, are there any lead laws in Kansas??? or can you point to where to find out for sure. I want to send the kid the above care package but I don't want him to get in any trouble for doing it.

    He was the last kid at home and my last kid fishing buddy so I gotta take care of him with the easy stuff, Privates don't make all that much money.

    Thanks In Advance
