Speed Concealed Carry Pistol Shirt by VERTX Designed 37.5 Relative Humidity for Best Comfort & Enhanced Action

Smart and comfortable and I can absolutely conceal my weapon-tool!
Smart and comfortable and I can absolutely conceal my weapon-too!

AmericanPressTravelNews-October 7th,-Bob reporting that these New Products for gun owners really work wonderfully for their designed uses.When I picked up this shirt (available in long or short sleeves and other color patterns)  and put it on, I immediately noticed that this was no ordinary piece of wearing apparel. It is a seriously woven piece of specialized, yet totally comfortable shirt with several innovations and uses. Two multi-purpose, reinforced zippered pockets that can be used to conceal your pistol, even the buttons on the shirt are snaps, but with button simulated snaps heads that actually conceal the real purpose of what this shirt is all about.  There are also snaps on the sleeves so you can roll them up and have your forearm free as if you wore a short sleeve model. The technology here is in, and discussed as the 37.5 factor, which is the core body temperature at which you feel most comfortable. The technology uses millions of particles to capture and release moisture vapor-helping you zone in on a personal micro-climate of an ideal relative humidity and core body temperature. 37.5 active particles are naturally derived with zero harsh chemicals to irritate the skin. The product dries up to 5-times faster than similar clothing cutting down on wet cling. The technology is permanent and never washes out or degrades.

Personally, I love this shirt. Not only can I comfortably wear a high quality, comfortable shirt, but I can easily conceal my pistol and only I know where it is and how really fast I could deploy my weapon if ever necessary.  Go for more information and to order your great shirt too!

AmericanPressTravelNews-Sept. 23rd, Florida Keys–Bob and Barb “On the Road again?” Yes, we are booked to do an updated book of our original sold-out book: “The Best Restaurants in the Florida Keys.” The first book reviewed 60-Florida Keys restaurants, many still in business, some not since the 1980’s. The book had distinctly tropical recipes, comments on each page by charter captains about their favorite restaurants and dishes, collected articles from my column in the Miami Herald, and many of my own recipes one of which is being served in many restaurants across the country; “Fish Pizzaiole.”  There have been nearly 100-new restaurants opened in the Keys since the 1980’s and Bob and Barb have been tasked to include them in the new book while updating all the original food emporiums they visited and tasted. This book will be hard-cover, full-color, and with an expanded Keys recipe section from the best of the best in the Keys!
