Finally got my Distinguished patch.   Figured I would frame the AQT and keep it until I shoot a new PR.

That he does. The ONLY reason I beat him to Distinguished is because he was on a hiatus  ;D

I keep it around, but don't frame it.

However, I have a couple cleared Redcoats that I'm about to post in my office, for passive 7th Stepping.

Working on a new personal goal - Rapid Fire Redcoat:  Clearing it in 65 seconds or less.

"Responsibility is a unique concept... You may share it with others, but your portion is not diminished. You may delegate it, but it is still with you... If responsibility is rightfully yours, no evasion, or ignorance or passing the blame can shift the burden to someone else. Unless you can point your finger at the man who is responsible when something goes wrong, then you have never had anyone really responsible.”
― Hyman G. Rickover

What's a PR?

As for framing, here's a neat one that I saw. It's not mine, but I like the idea.

Like!  My wife (American Amazon) and I have been doing a '3 position redcoat', shooting the silhouettes in the corresponding AQT positions, which makes it a bit more challenging (just have to prep extra mags so we transition empty).  We'll give the 'rapid fire' a try as well.

Given the context, my guess is "personal record".  IOW, your highest score ever.

Yep.  I call them "refrigerator targets".  The ones you want to hang on the fridge when you get home after a shoot.

Once you've shot a Rifleman score, it's time to start teaching others the tradition of American riflery to advance Liberty.  The goal is to expand the Mission and return America to a Nation of Rifleman again.

P.S.  It's good for every volunteer to requalify annually... preferably at full distance.  We need to practice what we preach!

I didn't keep an AQT but I did frame a "team" target from 2nd event that I and my two compadres, CatDoc and Bloodshot attended.  Target means more to me than pretty much all my personal trophies from over the years.

Nashville Stage, I've seen the same display on Rimfirecentral.com. I believe a high scored target is worthy of framing, I have plans to have mine framed as well. After all, it took a lot of practice and rounds expended to get there.

KD is an every week thing for me, I'm fortunate to have an E-target system to practice on.

My girlfriend snuck my first rifleman target away and had it framed for my birthday some years back.
Now I need to hint at my distinguished target.  ;D

In a related side note, I've started scoring AQTs with a mechanical pencil instead of a pen or marker.
1: This helps when I make mistakes in scoring or addition.  ;)
2: If the student decides to frame the AQT, the scribbles can be erased so it looks nice & clean.
