It should look exactly like the other target sheets except there should be lots and lots of different sets of rings on different parts of the body.

It could go both ways, I suppose. I kind of like the paint-by-number aspect of this. It takes it a level higher than just target practice. It's nearly an art.

My thoughts exactly.
The paint-by-number target is what makes or breaks this ad. I think it's just perfect the way it is.
Although, I have to say the needle on the meter didn't move too much by looking at this work. One of the most overused images in advertising however the twist might be. And the Smith & Wesson "precision firearms" campaign is still fresh in my memory for me to make an unfair comparison between the two.

No question this is creative work, but rather forgettable at the same time. I may be wrong though, as always...

This probably isn't "consumer" advertising, in that case. But rather trade.

I lol'ed. Thumbs up.
Think younger generations (usually the ones that are paintballing) will know what paint-by-numbers is, though? Hmmm.
