    Grand Canyon State

    Just came across this site. Man what a wealth of info! Im a Firefighter / Paramedic in Arizona and am a casual CCW. I carry when I can and/or feel its needed. Generally Im of the OWB cover up kind of guy. Iv read a couple of posts on the topic of what you say when asked "Why do you think you need to carry a gun" type of question. Luckily my job lends credit. Not as much as a LEO but does shut people up fairly quick. I usually say something to this affect. Im a Firefighter / Paramedic. Iv seen what happens on the streets around here and have taken care of the victims of those encounters........How about you? I love it when I get an other wise grumpy old man who suddenly gets humbled and gives me a "you got me there" look or comment. Anyways great site! Hope to get to know some of you.
