Why won't indoor ranges allow black powder handguns and rifles?

One shot and you could not see the range anymore!

Aside from the overwhelming amount of smoke and the notorious smell, I really have no idea. ;)

There's one indoor range in South San Francisco that allows it but only at a certain time on a specific day.

My club looked into it as an add-on to our winter indoor rimfire pistol league shoots, but the upgrade necessary to our air handling fans and filters was incredibly expensive. It's a health issue - we couldn't get a health department buyoff without major remodeling.

I bought conversion cylinders for my Remingtons so I could enjoy the indoor range with light smokeless loads here on those cold wet rainey days ..It beats sitting on the couch in front of the boob tube , and I get to fondle my favorite toys more often that way .
