gas mask
    #1346071 - 03/02/03 04:32 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

anyone else got a gas mask? is having one just being paranoid or is it a good precaution? i mean, i see it as having 2 uses, riot gear or life saving gear, both being decent reasons. and then it could be used for novelty as well, not many people walk around with a gas mask on.

"Overall preparation for any terrorist attack is the same as you'd take for a big storm. If you want a gas mask, fine, go get one. I know this stuff and I'm not getting one and I told my Mom not to bother with one either (how's that for confidence). We have a week's worth of cash, several days worth of canned goods and plenty of soap and water. We don't leave stuff out to attract bugs or rodents so we don't have them. These people can't conceive a nation this big with this many resources.

These weapons are made to cause panic, terror, and to demoralize. If we don't run around like sheep they won't use this stuff after they find out it's no fun. The government is going nuts over this stuff because they have to protect every inch of America. You've only got to protect yourself, and by doing that, you help the country."

Taken from here.

It's not military grade and won't work. It's just a ploy to get paranoid people to buy useless stuff.

good article mrm. can you be afraid and still act reasonably or would that be using your intuition?

as for the military grade comment.. its air tight, seals to my face perfect, all i need worry about are new filter canisters which i could theoretically stock up on. m40a1 or whatever are the current military issue I believe. so =P

bah, mayble i will just find a way to attach a bong to it.

Lol, I think it would far more useful as a bong. I'm sure somewhere along the line some company producing commercial grade gasmasks probably supported Bush's presidency campaign. So your pretty much just reimbursing these guys for helping bush get elected. But I suppose if it makes you feel better...

U actually need one of the hooded millitary ones.
As I understand the filters must be changed out very often for them to be affective.

What u have there is basicly for green gas, or tear gas.
It would work well against the police.

I've laughed at the duct tape and plastic thing so much it's not even funny.
Homes have air leaks no duct tape and plastic is going to fix this.

The way I look at it is if we get gassed thats life and thats how you were ment to meet your doom.
Thats bad to sit and think about.....so don't
Live your life for the best and make the most of it.
Tell your fam you love them thats basicly all you can do.

Death scares alot of people and the government knows this.
They know good and damn well duct tape and plastic are not going to help.
It's a scare tactic and it's working.

They have the average american scared to death over something that they can do nothing about.
The US is suffering from a terror tactic that didn't come from the middle east it came from washington DC

If u must have a hooded mask I'll post a link to them in a min.
However keep this in mind that all new filters are being stockpiled by the government now. So the filters you can get are surplus from the storm.
There not rated to be stored for long times so odds are even those will not help.
Expect to kick out about 100-150 bucks for the hooded masks. There not cheap I wanted one from desert storm to put in my collection but I've desided to wate untill this Iraq stuff ends so they will drop in price.

Sometimes Tapco has some extras U can check with them also.
Http://www.tapco.com
or try getting a shotgun news mag.

You may say Im a dreamer,

i wonder if people know what happens when nerve agent lands on your skin? a mask will do nothing but make your funeral an opened casket one.

If there's a chemical attack, you won't be able to get to your gas mask in time.

The people selling gas masks are laughing all the way to the bank.

First off, you're not going to get hit with a chemical attack. That's just being paranoid.

Secondly, you're a sucker. Did you buy a Q-Ray as well?

It's funny. Americans are buying up all this shit, and the rest of the world is laughing at them.

Not all Americans..i'd say a VERY low percentage. Hell i didn't even stock up on water for Y2K and i was running on fumes in my car. Don't believe everything the media reports.

Well, yeah, I'm sure it's not all americans.

There's a good deal of them though, a hell of a lot more americans than canadians.

There's an army surplus store in town here, and the guy there was saying that the sales of gasmasks and such had increased in the past months... but pretty much exclusively to americans.

If theres chimicals or disease in the air, how are you going to take that mask off to eat or drink? You die five days after everyone else, big deal, you got to see a bunch of suffering and death, and maybe another guy with a gas mask. If he was dead, that would be ironic.


Dude, you wouldn't have to wear the gas mask for days, all you'd have to do is move to a location with a breeze. It'd be nearly impossible to achieve such high concentrations of the chemicals or biological agents in a WMD to make it bad enough to have to wear a mask for days on end.

ha ha..famous last words. Unfortunatly those that haven't had NBC training don't know that once a nerve agent, biological etc. has been dropped it needs to be cleaned up and a breeze is not enough to de-contaminate.

don't count on it.

as a side note i really wish people would relax because the odds are pretty high that this will vever happen to the point where we'd actually need a mask.
