I am trying to merge these two shapes in Adobe Illustrator, so that the black line makes a cutout through the grey rings of the target, and leaves a specified gap around the edge between the black line and the target (2px). I am trying to do this in Illustrator 2015.
Here is what I have currently.
If it helps, I am trying to create an icon which consists of a target and an arrow going into the centre of the target.
I have tried using the pathfinder tool, and have tried a number of different Google searches, though am struggling to describe my problem well enough for a Google search to yield any useful results.
Thanks in advance.
