Copy – FTRPA Safety Evaluation for Prospective Members

This quiz is intended to evaluate basic knowledge about firearms and how to handle them safely. You do not need to get everything 100% correct. We just want to ensure that you will be a safe member of our club. Some questions are very basic, while others are intended to be more challenging. The test is timed to 30 minutes for 25 questions. While the quiz works on mobile devices, it’s probably best to use a desktop with a larger screen. Good luck!
