    The summertime version of Under Armor brand of T shirts helps a little bit in wicking away sweat.

    Not that I am aware of. The only statute I have seen relates to felons. Is it a new one for 2007?

    Besides, who would WANT to wear body armor in Texas? More likely to die of heatstroke than get shot.

    One of the happiest days of my life was when I no longer had to wear body armor... especially in the summer!
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    I'm sure the original "mall ninja" Gecko45 would have lots to say about his solution to the body armor problem.

    I keep that one saved in my favorites for whenever I'm having a crap day at work. I laugh every time I read it.
