    I do a lot of mowing during the season. A lot... Sweat, grime, grass clippings. I won't mention where I found a small twig while taking a shower one summer a couple years ago. While doing this stuff I've carried a Kahr CW9, Sigma 9mm, Sigma 40ve, CZ75B, Smith Wesson 5906, and a Bersa 380. Everything from fairly small to pretty big and heavy. I prefer big and heavy.

    I sweat like a pig and in the summer here in Ohio humidity is off the charts. So I don't carry when I mow the lawn. I can't justify giving my baby a saltwater bath once a week. I live in a pretty nice area and at 6 ft 230lbs I'm just not that concerned about being a victim in my front yard. I know, I know no safe places and all that, but some places are safer than others.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    I own a landscaping/lawn maintenance company. If I didn't carry while mowing the lawn, I wouldn't carry for 8 months of the year!

    So, during the heat of the summer, it's a S&W 642 in the front pocket while at work. Off the clock & during cooler months - the G36 is with me.

    Dillon Aero M134 gatling gun, turret mounted, with two fresh batteries and ammunition belts towed behind the dump trailer.

    No, really I usually carry my Glock 23 IWB with a covering shirt. I open carried last week, and may do that more often to desensitize the neighbors to me being armed.

    no real problems in the neighborhood yet. Mainly pepper spray and a knife when I'm outside. Stray dogs are my main concern. If I feel like things are going downhill I'll do what I do when I'm out on the town. G19 in and OWB Serpa holster, OC. Right now I have good neighbors and we watch out for each other. We're all armed.

    My neighbor and I have a agreement. When he is mowing, I put on my sniper gear, get my rifle, and climb a tree so that I can cover any possible dangers to him or our homes. That means that he can concentrate on mowing without having to carry a firearm or be concerned about situational awareness. When I mow he does the same for me. We have complete trust in each other so it works out very well. We both have mine sweepers on the front of our riding mowers to try and prevent any unexpected explosions. Oh, and we also turn out the dogs for additional security. During this dangerous time, our wives and children are told to lock the doors and remain inside.

    Carry while mowing? Am I dressed? What kind of question is that? I usually only carry my LCP inside, but for going out for something like that, I'd have have to upgrade. And I have a knife, flashlight, and gun with me in the shower as well (covered up of course). Of course that is what I carry around the house anyway. What exactly is a good reason to disarm?

    Sounds like a good start. However, I believe prudence would involve sending out a recon unit earlier in the day. Also I would check to see if any other neighbors have a pilot license, (aerial support). Heck, if you could find the pilot neighbor maybe you could just all add clean rooms to your homes and defoliate weekly, this would negate the need to leave yourselves wide open out in the yard. Of course you'll need to find a way to secure the clean room. I guess the question really should be "What do you carry while hiding out in the clean room during lawn defoliation?" I'll say Mossberg 500.
