I contacted Andre and Tracy from the Durban Branch, to assist me with my competency and firearm application. Both applications have successfully been approved thanks to the assistance provided by Legally Armed. Tracey was very professional, effective, and fast in compiling my applications for me. Her contribution to my successful applications has been invaluable and I highly recommend their services to anyone who is looking for assistance to successfully apply for a firearm. Thank you, Tracey, for your great service.

Dit is vir my aangenaam om die dienste van Johann Dreyer van Legally Armed hoog aan te beveel. Johann is uiters professioneel, bekwaam, eties en baie kundig, veral ten opsigte van Vuurwapenlisensiering en die Vuurwapen Wet wat Legally Armed se kundigheidsveld is. Tesame met Johann se onbetwisbare kennis en toewyding was dit vir my ‘n plesier en ‘n gerusstellende ervaring om saam met hom te werk. Ek beveel Legally Armed ten sterkste aan vir enige vuurwapenlisensie verwante sake.

Legally Armed - Exceptional Service
1] The purpose of this memorandum is to recommend Legally Armed to any candidate in need of either applying for a new firearm license alternatively a renewal license and/or competency certificate.
2] I was referred to Legally Armed by a colleague who spoke highly of their level of service and professionalism.
3] The level of service and the in depth in knowledge of what was required and how the bundle of documents were to be compiled truly was exceptional.
4] The process was hassle free: after having completed a checklist and furnished the requested documents Legally Armed literally did all the rest: I simply arrived at their offices and received all my licence applications neatly bound together with "flags" where I was supposed to sign and or certify documents.
5] Thereafter the application bundles were taken to the relevant police station who could find no fault in the applications at all.
6] For peace of mind and knowing that your applications are done right the frist I would highly recommend making use of Legally Armed.
Mr. V. Ceronio - Centurion Branch Legally Armed.
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.
