TODO: Add a picture of a kicking target

Mission Pinball Framework’s (MPF) kicking target device represents a switch in a pinball machine. This device is used for kicking targets with a coil for kicking. Used rarely, these targets look like stationary targets, but when hit they kick the back in the opposite direction much like a slingshot or bumper.
