Yes, 3 points for hits on each target. And, no, there is nothing
in the rules to forbid you from continuing to plug away at one or both
of the flankers, the only reason (on a practical level) for wanting to
hit the center target is that it would be easier to make points on,
I agree that the the three targets are looking like being
difficult to arrange - some ranges won't have the ability to permit the
kind of setup the rules call for. You have read them correctly as far
as the five-yard delineation is concerned, but I am coming rapidly to
realize that that arrangement will like-as-not need to be modified.
I hope you decide to try it some more, with a thought toward
submitting scores. If you do, arrange those targets however you can,
and tell me what works. The essence of that arrangement is: first hit
one small taget, then hit another small target, then hit an easier and
larger target. If "5 yards" doesn't work well, that can be fiddled with.
