    Mowing the lawn

    Put the Smith in your pocket. Speed strips in the other pocket.

    I mow using all three: IWB, belt and pocket, typically a Kahr PM9.

    No problems with carry method, but keeping them dust/dirt free IS a problem.
    I simply keep them covered with my shirt.

    I hire the neighbor kid, sit out on the patio with a cold drink, and guard him while he's mowing the yard.

    You took the words right out of my mouth!

    I thought about carrying when I mow but here in SC I sweat so much I was concerned about the wear on the gun (and holster).
    Then I figured that it would take a lot of fire ants to kick my butt and they don't "carry" so I just keep the gun in the garage.
    I found the 12ga works really good on the fire ant mounds.

    Same here, but it's my kid. I thought that was one of the benefits of having children. Three boys, 24, 20 & 16, I haven't touched a mower in years.

    I've got a while before I get to that point. Mine is just now pushing his toy mower.

    I'm thinking pocket carrying the J Frame. Come to think of it, I need shorts with bigger pockets.

    It's a self propelled mower. Our yard isn't big enough for a riding mower. If I ever get one of those, I'm going to mount a holster right next to the "beverage" holder. Maybe opposite side, don't want to spill any on the J Frame.

    I found these at Academy for $24.99. The main pocket goes all the way to the bottom of the cargo pocket. My 642 disappears in these and the cargo pocket sewn on top of the main pocket breaks up any printing. The pocket opening is one of the largest I've found.

    Thanks. I have some cargo shorts that are good for pocket carry. I just don't want to use them for lawn duty just yet. I usually mow in basketball type shorts as I find them comfortable & cool. Academy would be a good place to go. They're usually the cheapest around.

    That pretty much leaves you with upper-body carry options:

    The survival sheath or other chest rig, a belly band, shoulder holster under shirt (not gonna work with a t-shirt), UC comfort or other holster undershirt (probably too hot and overkill for carrying a J-frame).

    Or carry it in a Maxpedition man-purse, but that seems silly with such little guns.

    You may have to change your dress or go with-out a ccw--your choice.

    Yesterday I mowed using my Crossbreed Super Tuck, with my PT111, and everything was just fine. I usually use that or a Desantis Tuck This with my Bersa Thunder. I don't tuck my shirts in when mowing but both of these keep the weapon secure, out of the dust and don't limit mobility.

    However if you use basketball type shorts, that ain't going to work. Your neighbors will be yelling at you to pull your darn pants up. If your going to carry a gun in your pants you need to have a proper pair of pants to carry in.

    Good luck.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    But that 16 y/o should be leaving home in a few years. Time to save for the riding mower or invest enough money that you can pay a new kid from the interest.

    You could get a couple of goats - they will eat the grass and any trash or garbage that blows in your yard.
