In a word, yes.
You have to follow the same rules and regulations that any other private citizen does however.
This is a huge gray area to some cities, but nothing in the law prevents you from being an unlicensed contract agent who "just happens to carry a gun in a completely legal manner" while you work. The biggest thing is having a business licence if you make over a certain amount, I believe, 4000 a year?
Its been a few years since I worked in this capacity, so the income rules may have changed.
