    I am writing your company with an idea that I have been developing over the past year. After much planning and research, the time has finally come to bring it to market. I decided on this idea after a young concealed carry soldier was killed in December 2018 inside Birmingham Alabama mall by police.

    The vest draft drawing and provisional patent application was completed by December 03, 2019. My gold is licensing my provisional patent and royalties or outright sell it. I decided to contact your company instead of Shark Tank. I believe you have the marketing team and staff to reach out to companies who maybe interested in this invention.

    I was in Vietnam on October 28, through November 29, 2019 on vacation. While there, I had 20 prototypes made for less than $7, I’m sure the cost could be drastic cut with thousands made and retailed at $15.95 each.

    America has 22 millions plus concealed carries owners and 230,000 new concealed carries yearly my invention market concealed carries, off duty law enforcement, teachers, and I believe this business would be a great revenue stream the 30 years.

    My invention will help save concealed carries and off duty law enforcement lives, not only in America but also around the world.


    Sometimes concealed carriers and off duty law enforcement may get into
    an unexpected emergency situation such as shootings in malls, schools, concerts, etc. that may lead to a bad situation. In that kind of situation, there might be a contest between the two parties (concealed carriers or off duty law enforcement, and a bad person with a gun). Therefore, an arriving uniform law enforcement may mistakenly shoot an innocent bystander including a concealed carrier or an off duty law enforcement.

    Existing techniques for identifying a concealed carrier and an off duty law enforcement during gun incidents are deficient with regard to several aspects. For instance, current techniques do not allow an arriving uniform law enforcement to identify a bad person.

    I am requesting a 15 minutes meeting to pitch my idea with your company any time after January 15, 2020. I’m willing to fly to your location to pitch to your team if we can sign a non-disclosure agreement.

    I retired 3 years ago from DoD, I’m available to meet with the concerned person or people who can make a decision about my invention.

    I’m 100% sure that the president, NRA, congresses, senators, and other law enforcement agencies will back this invention, as it will SAVE LIVES. The cost is unbelievable affordable

    I am excited about this new invention, and I believe that together we can SAVE LIVES to make America and the rest of the world a better place for concealed carries and off duty law enforcement.

    Looking to pitch a concept for intimate wear. It’s has medical and fashion purposes. I’d be happy to provide a NDA. I’ve drawn all the figures and written about it in precise and thorough detail. This one concept has the cababilities of turning into a LINE of products. I have checked the parent sldatabase and it is not a concept which has been used.

    I promise you won’t regret giving you and I-an opportunity! Thanks!

    Hello im John and i have a new concept of the boxer briefs with a condom pocket. Targeting our young adults to give the message of awareness,responsibility,and healthier decision making ! I believe with a great company marketing them they will be  big ! They can be your brand and you can design them the way you see fit. I just want a licensing deal if possible. Or can be discussed. And there’s a unique tag that’s detachable that comes with them. Created to carry extra protection. These briefs will be very fun,beneficial,and informational ! Don’t Dare go Unprepared !
