    Let's talk gas masks

    So i have being researching gas masks and so far it seems to me that they are legal in Canada with the exception of wearing them during riots or public protests.

    First of all, am i correct in this assumption?

    Assuming the above is true, i am having issues finding a supplier in Canada...i have reached out to a couple and was told they only sell to LEO/Military. Are there any good Canadian sources for NEW (not surplus) masks?

    Are gas masks ITAR? Can i order one from the US? Again, who are good sources?

    I really like the AVON FM12...is it still being produced? Most places show out of stock although there are surplus ones available here and there.

    Any thoughts on the AVON FM12 and AVON C50 specifically? Any other recommendations?

    Thanks

    Most face masks are used in industry, e.g. spray painting.

    I was recommended the Evolution 5000.
    I've used MSA and Scott(3M) as a firefighter and would feel confident with anything made by them.
    A quick look, the 3M/Scott FRR looks nice

    Industrial supply stores sell MSA and Scott.
    Might be special order.

    But then...you waited to long

    Out of stock is obvious....during a Pandemic
    If you bought one last year no one would bat an eye.

    i have already ordered a Project Black TR1 like the one on the cover of the latest High Capacity (shameless plug: which also has my 7 page article on SHOT show ) and it is not so much for the current situation as i dont think we are at gas mask level yet....this is more for when it comes back "new and improved"..plus i like to have cool tactical gear

    If you find a good one, let us know.
    I wonder if there is an adapter for scba masks to take filters
