Dear Valued Customer,
RE: GUN CITY STORE RELOCATION
We write this letter in reply to the numerous queries and a few complaints that we have
received either telephonically or via www.hellopeter.com. We hope that this letter will answer
all your questions.
At the outset we would just like to apologise to all our customers for any inconvenience and
grievances that may have occurred.
On the 31st of January 2013 Gun City embarked on a move to relocate our premises. In the
interim we were instructed by the SAPS to move all our firearms to another licensed firearm
dealer for safe keeping until the new premises was approved by the SAPS. Please click here for letter from the SAPS.
We were hoping to have the new premises ready by the end of February 2013 for final
inspection and the issuing of our new trading license. Unfortunately, due to various
unforeseen circumstances beyond our control this could not happen.

The new facility was completed in May 2013, however, the SAPS only started with their audit
and inspection on the 23rd of April 2013 and the audit is still in progress. In the interim our
license to trade is still on hold. We have tried our utmost best to expedite the process but at
this point we are still prohibited by law from trading out of our premises.
As you would realise, these unfortunate events have had a great impact on our cash flow
and ability to trade.
Despite this, we have made great strides in developing a plan to address all the issues.
Please take note that it is business as usual for us and we will anticipate opening our new
Please take note that every single one of the firearms we had in our possession are currently
in safe keeping with an accredited dealer, as per instructions from the police. This includes
our stock, firearms that have been sold where the purchaser is waiting for the issuing of a
license and firearms that we held in safe keeping for customers.
Should you wish to collect a firearm that is either in safe keeping or where your license has
been issued, please contact us via e-mail on firstname.lastname@example.org. We will send a collection
letter to you which will enable you to collect your firearms but we will need a copy of the
approved license as well an invoice.
Should there be any further queries of whatsoever nature please feel free to contact us or
