I would challenge my step-son to a shoot off.
Targets - used 12 ga hulls.
Range - 25 yards
He got to use his 10-22, prone
I used either my Sigma 9 or 40
He got first shot at each target. If he missed, the next shot was mine.
He was a rookie and shot about 50%
I rarely missed

He got to hate that game.

Sometimes you use what is available. For skilled shooters, 12ga hulls at 50 yards are challenging with most handguns.

A friend of mine (former range master and precision rifle shooter) would play at 100 yards in the summer by shooting the grasshoppers off the target stands. With a 6mm Rem.

Ideally, only a couple inches of brainpan would be exposed, you'd have to nail the shot on the bad guy without getting any of the J.D.
That was the Savage Indian head chief (Native American leader) and the gun that was used was a savage Model 99 I believe in 300 savage. they did this to prove just how accurate the model 99 lever action was. To be honest that was one lever gun that was light years ahead of its time.

the gun store had a signed metal plate with that logo on it. It was done back when shooting exhibitions were in full swing.

I've done that with a 12ga, good times! Looks like it's snowing.

stepping on over to the "not so skilled" area. 50 yards "challenging"

!2 ga hulls @ 25 yds are my standard .22 pistol target. (Good approximation of head-neck area of spruce chicken.) 50 yds would be challenging. Beer cans (empty of course) are fun at 75-100. With my .357, the .45 just doesn't seem to group them quite that well. A hit with it out there is more luck than good judgement.

So I wanna make one of these, but superimpose member's heads onto the hostage, then hopefully rescue my forum brothers and sisters, with my shabby Mosin (carbine) at 1500 meters.

Sadly, I cannot scope this rifle.
