Who said gas mask?... Jim wrote, " Keep in mind that these primers will make you HIGH if you don't have adequate ventillation... Time to break down and buy the charcoal canister face masks (3M makes a good one)."
Jim DID NOT specifically mention using oil-based Kilz. It's only assumed since he mention getting "high". What he wrote left the impression that ALL Kilz products are oil based, which of course, they are not.
As far as the other stuff you said... you're preaching to the choir.
