Look at SM table. Do people have a Torso around 6 feet?

A torso should be -1 or -2 as well to target directly. Otherwise it SHOULD be a random hit location since the entire body is the 0 modifier, not just the torso. Otherwise the SM table is off.
Because aiming at center of mass is the default attack with many weapons and GURPS tries to avoid modifiers on the core use of a skill.
