Yes, that is one of those oxymoronic mantras used in teaching. It still implies there is a miss involved. Miss small or miss big, a miss is a miss.
I would take that as meaning miss the small object but still hit the man. For example, as was already said, aim for a button and miss, chances are you will likely still score a hit, though maybe not a killing one.

I am the weapon; my gun is a tool. It's regrettable that with some people those descriptors are reversed.
