Figuring Out Which Gas Mask To Buy For Coronavirus

USA –  -(AmmoLand.com)- There has been loads of speculation and discussion on what protection will work to keep you safe from the COVID-19 virus. It is pretty clear from most of the reports that the surgical facemasks are only good for keeping you from spreading water-borne virus germs. As far as protection, they do help keep you from touching your face but they don't fit tight enough to keep particles that are already in the air from getting past the mask.

The only proven protection is a traditional gas mask designed for CBRN (chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear defense) if you are determined to spend some money and be prepared the MIRA Safety CM-7M Military CBRD Gas Mask is the gear you must own and train with. It is deployed in active duty with 100's of government agencies across the globe and it is the one we recommend if you want the tactical advantage of being able to shoulder and accurately shoot your defensive rifle.

No, health care workers in China are wearing FULLY enclosed suits,with exterior self contained oxy suppy, and are STILL getting infected.The people who need to be the MOST careful are ANY persons over 60 yrs old.Seems to affect Asians and elderly more than any other group.

Wear a mask if you are SICK. If you are not sick, forget the mask. Wearing a mask and not sick, concentrates bacteria in the mask, you handle it, get it in your nose, eyes, etc. We have all seen the Asians wearing masks for decades. Monkey see, monkey do. Also, the death rate for CV19 is 0.9 per 100…AND THAT is only if you have a compromised respiratory system or other serious illness. Most people will not even notice they have CV19, just a cough or runny nose. Too bad the media is hyping and fear-mongering CV19 for political… Read more »

“I’m Not Dead.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jdf5EXo6I68

“To help prevent a coronavirus infection, do the same things you do to avoid the common cold:

Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water or with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
Keep your hands and fingers away from your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Avoid close contact with people who are infected.
You treat a coronavirus infection the same way you treat a cold:

Get plenty of rest.
Drink fluids.
Take over-the-counter medicine for a sore throat and fever. But don’t give aspirin to children or teens younger than 19; use ibuprofen or acetaminophen instead.”

Upvoted your OP because their hypocrisy is blindingly arrogant. If we dont need masks, neither do they. And if we dont need AR-15’s then they dont need rifles either. Good post, thanks. On a somewhat unrelated note, I’ve been noticing for several months now that the government is buying up all the freeze-dry storage survival food. The only supplier that refuses to sell to the government is My Patriot Supply. Everyone else couldn’t resist Uncle Sugar’s megabucks and are selling their entire production capacity to the government, and leaving their consumer portals with nothing but “out of stock” messages. And… Read more »

Flatt – I don’t need an AR-15, as long as I get a Travor (?) and AR-10 in return. Throw in a Barrett’s 50 and we’ll have a deal! 🙂

Well to be fair it was NEVER about “need”. It’s about freedom of choice, and you’ve obviously got yours made. I have an AR-10 as well as an AR-15 (for home defense). But I would definitely melt my debit card to get one of them Tavor 7’s. It’s a .308 bullpup that gives you a full-length barrel in less overall length than a standard AR, and the Tavor takes Pmags. It also has an adjustable gas block if you wanna put a hush puppy on it, and you can pick a color besides basic black. What’s not to love???

Well, no offense, but I can think of a few things I don’t love about bullpups. Tail-heavy, slower reloads, and handedness, to name three. I know most of them can be converted to be either left or right handed configuration, but I am referring to the ability to shoot both right and left handed with the same gun without setting it up different. Picture a stage where one must shoot around both the left AND the right sides of the same barricade, on the clock. Or, someone left handed picks up your right handed bullpup, etc. They cannot really be… Read more »

@Knute – Or could it be that traditional rifles are more front-heavy? The Tavor 7 is fully ambidexterous including the charging lever and that’s pretty easy to switch. The selector switch & mag release are both ambi and need no switch. The ejection port is so easy to change over it literally involves opening one side and closing the other! Accessing the internals is easy too. I admit that shooting bullpups is different, and that most of them are deficient in various ways but the Tavor 7 is a game-changer, and normally I would pour scorn on bullpups! If it… Read more »

@Knute – Was being facetious – Can you imagine gun grabbers being willing to do something like that to take an “evil AR15” “off the street”? Seriously though – if they were stupid enough I’d take the three expensive firearms in exchange for my AR carbine. Would keep the pistol which is only one I’ve been shooting lately anyway. All very good points. I actually have never knowingly seen a Tavor in person. Strongly agree about handedness, believe minimum exposure shooting around barricades is important – though I need even more work on my left handed shooting than I do… Read more »

IMO,You need FOUR kinds of of weapons,An accurate Bolt gun.(capable of 1000yd moa or under groups.) 7.62/.308. 2-3 Semi Auto’s AR clones,extra parts (BCG),two in 5.56/one in 7.62/.308 2-3 Semi Auto Pistols.(9mm NATO)Best buy on these now that are really good weapons on the cheap are Taurus G2C9 12+1,or for $50.00 more a S&W M&P Shield.9mm. One .22LR semi like a 10/22.(good ammo, not buckets of misfire crap) My thoughts are at least 5-10 mags for semis, and for 9mm’s 3-4,(.22LR 2-3 Ruger factory 20rds, and a couple of 5 rd Ruger’s.) Stick to what the military uses and ammo… Read more »

I concur! .308 is better than 5.56 in several ways.

Not in a short barrel like the one pictured. In that configuration it isn’t even a 7.62X39 Krinkoff. They are a very good flashbulb and noisemaker though.

Yes, DPMS, Bushmaster and Tapco. All the latest casualty of Remington’s acquire-and-kill management strategy. Needless to say, I’m no fan of Remington anymore. While Bushmaster has had a checkered QC history, DPMS did not suffer from that. And TAPCO provided budget gun accessories for gun owners who couldn’t afford the higher-end accessory brands.

With friends like Remington and NRA, who needs enemies??

– Ammoland reported this a couple weeks ago when Remington shuttered the three websites for these companies, and speculated that this meant they were closing these companies. Nothing anywhere has been published since that suggests otherwise. Sad thing is, I have both Bushmaster and DPMS products, both work great for me, and I see no reason why these companies should have been shuttered.

It’s not fear to be prepared. You put your seat belt on when you get in the car, that’s not fear. You EDC your pistol when you get up every day, that’s not fear. You buy insurance for home, vehicle and life; that’s not fear either. Why do people always couch the same principle as “fear-based” when it comes to prepping for black swan events, whether it be pandemics, grid-down, market collapse, etc.??

Better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it!!! Fortune favors the prepared!!

(Addendum to your excellent advice).

STAY away from crowds of all people, esp in enclosed settings(trains/subways/ buses etc). Wear nitrile cheap gloves everywhere you go in public, trash them when you get home.
Typical procedures for not getting the Flu or a common cold.
Funny no one ever thinks when they go to a pharmacy, esp a drive through the pharmacy workers do not wear gloves, and at least 50% of folks picking up scrips are most likely sick.

They won’t do you any good. I wore one throughout the eruption of Mt. St. Helens in 1980 as a firefighter. They become too oppressive to wear for any length if time, and can really stress you out after awhile. Just to breath takes effort. So much so, you have to drink fluids through a sippy tube. If you have to spit, you’ve just compromised yourself. If you sweat, you have just compromised yourself. And there’s no sleeping in the damn things that you won’t rip it off while dreaming that a “face hugger” straight out of the movie ‘Alien’… Read more »

seriously? a gas mask? Lol. It’s not much different than the flu. I’ll just wash my hands and be vigilant in public places. Preppers make me laugh. Oh, i’m sure they’ll say I’ll be the one to laugh at when “SHTF”, but I’ll take my chances. And I’d do just fine.

Those are for when you get gassed by the Gestapo, and mainly for their protection from tear gas.

I prefer the full dome vision rather than the goggles style. It makes a big difference when your fighting.
