Glad I could help!
There's also things like actors aiming off screen, or at some non existent target that will be put in with special effects later. They may not even know where they are supposed to be aiming. So they may be aiming downwards slightly on a target that might be slightly higher than them, or vice versa.
Which is one reason why the only time the 'dustbuster' ever looked like they were shooting where they were aiming was in the 'firing range' set where the targets were all CGI anyway They could place them where the actors had aimed.
