    Cool

    Concrete, rock gardens and cacti.
    Then sit back on your patio and watch your neighbors mow their lawns.

    How about 2 Smartcarrys... drop one in the laundry basket after mowing, wear the other one until after you mow the next time.

    Assuming you are mowing your own lawn you really don't have any rules to worry about. You can open carry at home. If you want to remain concealed, I'd recommend no change from normal.

    Are you worried about a John Deere drive-by?

    Seriously +10000000 for hiring the neighbor kid. Hopefully it will ignite some curiosity about money and how he can make more of it through hard work (can you tell I mowed lawns??)

    Khaki shorts, leather belt, your favorite IWB holster, oversized tee-shirt or button down, un-tucked. Hat. Good to go.

    As one Tex Mower to another, paddle on the hip J frame with a over sized gray T-shirt. Or if you are wearing cargo pants or short a simple drop into the pocket, but for sure... the J!

    I wear just regular cotton twill walmart shorts with elastic waistband and a drawstring belt... no cargo pockets. Just one back pocket and two side hands pockets.

    I often carry my XD9sc in the strong side pocket (without a pocket holster). The weight of the gun does not keep pulling down on the shorts either.

    Took a few days to get used to the weight of the gun, as prior to that, I rarely pocket carried, but I didn't have to go around always pulling my shorts up either.

    I carried that way all summer long last year. I had a bulge, but it didn't look like a pistol. No one ever gave it a second look out in public.

    Now that I'm used to it, I'll sometimes carry the G-23 or XD9 in a IWB holster and my SP-101 in pocket when wearing long trousers and a belt.

    I have found, it doesn't matter how big the bulge in the pocket is, the never notice! NEVER gotten a second look!

    Remember, your permit says "concealed" not "without a bulge!"

    Pick up a Kel-Tec P32 or P3AT. With the belt clip installed, either will ride just fine on basketball shorts with a Tee cover. I regularly carry my P32 like this for lawn work or even for a run through the neighborhood.

    When I'm at home I carry however it goes on. I don't worry about concealing in my yard for two reasons. #1-I don't have to, my house and yard. #2-I live in the city area. If BG sees my gun on me, sees my three BIG dogs, sees me shooting my bow at the targets in my back yard from my house roof, he knows there is no food here, move on.
    As far as mowing is concerned, I got lucky. My wife loves to mow. When I first moved in , my wife was mowing the grass as I sat at the outdoor bar having a beer. My nieghbor sees me and says "You've got your lovely wife mowing the lawn and you're sitting drinking a beer, you ought to be hung!" I said-(here it comes) I am, that's why she's mowing the lawn!
