What our happy clients have to say about our services!

On November 2021, my wife had her application for the renewal of her firearm license for self-defense (Section 13 of the Firearms Control Act) declined by the SAPS. Their reason for having the application for renewal declined was that she had provided insufficient reasons and motivation for them to approve of the renewal. We approached Legally Armed, paid them the stipulated fees, which was affordable bearing in mind the hours and days spent in gathering all the necessary legal documents for the application to be send to the Appeals Board at the CFR in Pretoria. Two and a half months later the appeal was successful, and my wife had her firearm license issued to her. I want to reiterate that it is imperative to deal with firearm related issues through Legally Armed, whether it is a first application, renewal or any matter whatsoever related to firearms as they clearly demonstrated their ability to deal with, and successfully at that, the intricacies of the law pertaining to firearms. I, without a doubt, recommend anybody make use of their services as they are at the forefront of fighting for every law-abiding citizen’s right to keep and bear arms. A special thank you to Michael Steyn and Johan Martin for tirelessly working in assisting my wife and for providing all the necessary legal expertise with her successful appeal. Also, a big thank you to Legally Armed in ensuring that our rights as citizens to protect and defend ourselves, our families and our property are not infringed upon. I commend Legally Armed for their professionalism, integrity, honesty and above all, their tenacious perseverance and persistency in turning a predicament into a favorable outcome. They are fighting the good fight for us ALL. Best wishes to them.
