AAAAAagh! Gas! Quick, boys. Dulce et decorum est. But the rumormill reccomendeth against any Israeli or US military surplus masks, unless you can verify thye are new, never-before used. THe word is the used ones having alreadu been exposed to biological agents, have killed more than a handful of those who have stored them for emergencies. I believe I heard this on SIGHTINGS 6 months back -- so it's possible Jeff Rense may have an article archived on it.

Tha are rumors. Any Gas mask on the market that was subject to biological or chemical agents would have killed the people in the warehouses first. Those agends just LOVE warm storage.Just make sure that you get NEW filters with a newer date as most of them are useless or not fully effective after 3-5 years. Find a buddy in the armed forces and get a few good ones for use in high contaminated areas and get rid of then as soon as possible. Make sure to have a smal can of talkum powder to keep the mask from craking and the rubber from desintegration. Have some vaseline handy for your skin and some mild liquid soap so that you can decontaminate yourself propper.Get an Army manual on NBC/ABC protection.
