Not sure you will try to understand, but...
It is not an analogy.
Precision and accuracy are math and science concepts for evaluating data. Accuracy is a measure of nearness to a known or predicted value. Precision is a measure of repeatability. They can be applied to any data and the data types/sources can be wildly disparate (not analogous to each other). The causes of the inaccuracy or imprecision will naturally be specific to the data source, i.e. the causes of inaccuracy in hitting a golf ball or a baseball will differ but the accuracy of either can be evaluated and similarly precision in each. Data is commonly represented graphically such as on an X-Y graph. A "target" is nothing more than an X-Y graph with circles depicting equidistant points from center axis.
If you don't find the distinction worth discussing, fine, but it exists and is applicable regardless.
