AQT / Rifleman plaque for my daughter

My daughter, Megan, worked super hard to get her Rifleman patch at age 11 a couple of years ago (I think she shot at 7 or 8 events before getting 210).   Anyway, we have a CNC router and wanted to make something to display her AQT.   The silhouettes are the actual size they are on an AQT, just moved closer together, and we put holes through the wood to match her actual AQT.  Still need to stain it, but it has turned out pretty nicely so far.  See attached picture.


That looks amazing! I am especially impressed with the recreation of the Rifleman patch up top. I bet those stars were difficult. A very nice way to remember how she exemplified how a Rifleman perseveres.
The difference between a novice and a master: the novice does it until they get it right. The master does it until they can't get it wrong.

Father and daughter both have skills!  Good shooting and that plaque is AMAZING.



I would put this on the "Gifts for Appleseeders" list.

Provide options for wood species, stain, or paint.

"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

I hope you bring that to our next Appleseed so I can see it in person - SO COOL!!

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.
Samuel Adams


That is amazingly cool.  I have a teenage son who is knocking on the door of Rifleman. Maybe this will be his year.
