Welcome to Librarium Online!
So, in a recent game it was brought to my attention that you still need to pass a target priority test to target separate units using target lock. Reading through the rules this does make a lot of sense and something I know I had over looked since 5th.
So, you target your original unit you will shoot at. Make your target priority test for the unit and if you pass, you can split your fire as much as you can. If not, you have to fire only at the original unit you targeted.
Thoughts? Disagreements? Many duhs of, you should have already known this?
The Main Rulebook FAQ covered this definitively. If a rule is referenced that no longer exists, ignore it.
Therefore, ignore the target priority bit. You obviously cannot take, pass, or fail a test that doesn't exist.

GW rules state that game mechanics that are no longer used should be ignored (eg, target priority testing, counting number of outnumbering models etc).
If an especially evil opponent forces you to make a non-existent target priority test, then I think it's a good time to stop the game and play someone else :p
Hrmmm, good to know. Gotta find the page that rule is referenced in the main rulebook. Err, it was the FAQ. Found it and read it.
