    Need options for mowing the lawn

    OK. Now that it's lawn mowing season again, I am looking at carry options. My small carry guns are a Glock 26 & a SW 442 J Frame. I'm thinking that the J Frame would be easier to carry considering the lighter weight. I have a Smartcarry but think it would get too "funky" in the summer heat. I would rather stay away from fanny packs. Any ideas?

    Someone below was looking at a Survival Sheath chest rig--might work under your shirt.

    Riding lawn mower or push? Both? OWB strong side would be most accessible for either or both. If you will be wearing an undershirt, the Ken Null SKR or SMZ shoulder rigs would work well. If it's mostly seated riding I would not use the SmartCarry or pocket carry.

    Mount an M-60 on the mower.

    That's the way to go. That might help with those pesky weeds.

    For the life of me I couldn't figure it out either, so I pay my neighbor to mow my lawn and cover him.

    I tried that once but wife made me take it off. She thought it would scare the neighbors to much so i had to settle on the 12 guage slung around the back seatnext to the beer cooler.

    When working out in the yard, the Kimber stays in the house and my P-3AT goes in my front pocket...

    IWB or OWB holster under a tee shirt or tank top.

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    Man, it's nice living up here. For the most part, I go through less than a couple of quarts of gas a season since I love long grass and my wife loves flower and shade gardens. As far as arming up, I've actually carried a CAR-15 and one time a M1A just to look at the nuts driving down the highway looking. So far, no SWAT response; but, that's coming from about 6 hours away, and I'm not violating any laws. We also have no laws against open carrying a handgun.

    We lived in the U.P. and you may only put a couple of gallons of gas in your lawnmower, but you put 200 gallons in your snowblower...
