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.
