    I am currently working on a write-up of Hygenall's LeadOff. My local range supplies GoJo for people to use after being in the lanes. I started using LeadOff wipes to clean my face and arms, after washing my hands. I was curious if others use these, or if not, what you use instead.

    Do many people just not bother at all? I think that is a long-term bad idea if you're putting in a lot of range time, but to each their own.

    Someone told me that one of the greatest expenses ranges have is in controlling ventillation and any possible issues with airborne lead and mercury compounds. For as infrequently as I go (so far about 1 hour a month), I'm not really too concerned.

    As far as residue on your hands, I think washing with soap is all that is needed. While injestion of lead is never good, trace amounts are not going to kill you. Just my $.02 worth.

    Dawn dish soap.
    I have handled and played with lead for most of my life.
    I still haven't died from lead poisoning.
