    For those that mow and carry. What/how do you carry?

    In the summer I sweat like 4 hogs, wear swim trunks (cut like cargo pants) and change t-shirts a minimum of every customer.

    I don't even carry my keys in my pocket (cord around my neck). I could put a pocket pistol in a gardener's pouch I think but normal ccw rules just don't apply.

    What do you do?

    Cut grass and go home. No change of clothes and the keys stay hidden in the truck.

    I had an employee last year that brought 4 shirts with him every day. MY company shirt was the first to go by 9am.
    The time it took for him to change, dry off and adjust his MP3 player, I could of ate lunch.
    After a week I told him to get a job in air conditioning.

    Very hot and humid where you work, carrying would be a challenge.

    Have you considered one of these? It would be very hot and sweaty, but I don't see an alternative.


    I guess, you could move it back and forth a bit from side to side, but it would still get very sweaty underneath.

    Hey why are you wanting to carry while mowing. I can tell you from other experiences that if you are in a roungh area people can tell you are scared if you are packing. If you worry about the money you carry then start billing your customers. When I am out mowing the last thing I want to have to worry about is the fact that I have a gun on me. Leave it at home

    Now please, what could you possibly need with you while mowing a lawn that would require a fanny pack man purse.

    HEY LOOK AT THAT GUY!!! mowing with the man purse fanny pack.

    I was just at Disney World and was tired of carrying everybodys crap I thought of a fanny pack for 1 nano second. Then thought, I would shoot myself in the face before, I become one of those fanny pack man purse wearing guys.
