 NFAS membership is due for renewal by 1st April each year .If you cannot produce a current membership card when requested you will not be allowed to shoot as you will be considered uninsured. NFAS rules state that you must have your membership card with you when shooting, no exceptions.It is your only proof of insurance.It is best to  renew your memberships before 1st April to insure you are carrying current cards.The nearer to 1st April that you leave it to renew the longer it will take.


New NFAS members must have their shooting safety evaluated  and the provisional membership form signed by Ratpack's appointed person.
