A target can be a number of things:
- A small papery thing that you blow holes in on the range.
- A large papery thing that looks like either Elvis or the cover of a Commando comic that you blow holes in on the range - whether at a given distance or up close & personal.
- A particularly attractive female/male (whatever floats yer boat) in a bar.
- A 1970s detective series starring Patrick Mower in the days before he was forced to dumb down and slum it in Emmerdale.
- A large, sprawling non-papery thing that you blow holes in, like... Dresden.
