Thanks RickB,,,

Five-second penalty for hitting the hostage,
and 2.5 seconds for missing the steel plate.
I think this type of stage (with penalty) would have validity.

I think when we shoot at static targets,,,
We don't really think too much about when we miss.

Basically we say "Oh well." and go on shooting,,,
But when a miss has a catastrophic effect,,,
It tends to make one pay attention.

I googles "hostage targets" and got these results,,,
Apparently someone else thinks it's a worthwhile scenario.

This exercise CAN be done with paper B-27 targets. Fold the targets so that the "heads" are aligned the way you want them.

We used to do this in tactical training.

Did she have her clothes on? That could have been the problem.
