Lead poisoning from breathing contaminated indoor range air is, indeed, a serious consideration. (It's, probably, cost me a few IQ points!) In the incipient stages: If your nose and sinuses dry out while you're shooting, if your eyes, 'itch', or your throat becomes unusually dry and you develop a, 'metallic taste' in your mouth, then you've been at that range for too long and might want to think twice before you return.

You're probably right, because I never heard many reports about lead poisoning on people going to ranges alot.
