Precision of One Point

Relating back to the visual Dr. Lavelle showed us in lecture today of the points on a target, if I only had one point on the bulls eye, I know that would be accurate but would it also be precise? I'm not sure as to whether just one point can be precise or not.

I think only multiple points can be precise, since precision is defined as a series of measurements being close to each other, and a single point can't do that.
