Gas Mask Question

Hey you filthy niggers.
I saw something recently, I only wish I could remember where, that said half face respirators (like painters and contractors use) are better than surplus masks for several reasons:
1. They're made to higher standards
2. The filters are easier to come by and are cheap
3. You can aim a rifle with one on
4. There's a wider variety of filters that you can use, including military grade ones to protect against gas and similar shit that actual military masks are made for
I'm not sure how true any of this is, the guy claimed to be employed in a field that uses these masks and surplus masks and he says these blow the surplus ones out of the water in terms of practicality and reasons stated above.
I've currently got a Czech M10M mask, and the filters are a bitch to get in and out and I can't aim a rifle with it.
If the half masks are good then I could get some good goggles and use them with it.
Is this worth it or plausible? If not, I wan't a mask that accepts NATO filters, what should I look for in that area?
