Sandblasting Masks?

I recently had to do a small amount of sandblasting (a couple of A-arms) 
to remove some rust.  Since I don't have a blasting cabinet I used a back 
corner of my back yard that's just bare dirt, so the sand mixes in nicely, but 
makes a lot of dust while blasting.

Since I didn't want to  breathe the dust, I decided to get a respirator mask.  
The problem is, they all said "Not for Abrasive Blasting" on the packages.  
What are you supposed to use?

I went ahead and got a decent mask, since I figured it was a lot better 
than nothing...
