carrying while mowing

Does anybody carry when they mow their yard? I should have today as someone disregarded my "No Trespassing" signs and came part way down my 1/4 mile long driveway. I reminded him this was private property and he drove right past my sign, then he tried to run me over with his car, missing me by inches. I got his license plate number, but declined to call 911 since he left. I had a neighbor witness this, he came to see if I was ok, great to have good neighbors.
I always carry concealed, but not always when I'm mowing, a lot of dust and dirt flying around the air. Just interested what everyone else does.

Yup!!

Pretty much, if I have my pants or shorts on, I'm carrying.

I agree with Mills. Report it, you've got his license and you have a witness.

Report it.

I always carry where legal to do so. Especially while mowing . . . what if some dirt clod came on my property and tried to run me over?!

I've carried for almost 50 years. Never had to use it. Made me a lot more comfortable knowing it was there on a few occasions. After the investment in calories burned lugging around a gun, it'd be just awful, painful even, knowing it was in the safe and needing it.

Report it, and sign the complaints
You need the paper trail in case of further incidents

Sometimes I carry when mowing just to break in a new holster.

Report it, start the paper trail because this may have been an isolated situation and then again it may be the start of something bad. In any case, you can't go wrong with informing the law enforcement folks.

Yep, pants on gun on regardless of activity.

Report it. Find out if that tag belongs to a known BG.

It is my property, my driveway is a 1/4 mile long, he came almost half way down it. It wasn't a road, my personal drive.

I live in the country so I never know what I'll run into while mowing- ground hog, snake, bear etc. so I always have a pistol on me. Come to think of it I carry 99.999% of the time. It's a habit anymore. Wake up get dressed and grab a holster and gun for the day. Except for work days. Can't carry at work. But as soon as I come home I change and grab a gun and holster and carry until bed time.

First, report it. Second, if your pants are on you should be wearing a pistol. JMO.
