I am confused by what you mean here. It sounds like you are saying that someone can shoot at a missile outside the Point special property.
And yes, I agree with Hithesius as well.
He means you can fire the point defense weapon normally during the gunner phase (at a valid non-missile target within one range increment), plus a bonus shot against an attacking missile.
I think the reason for the fixed bonus is because it's an automated defense, like real world CIWS on aircraft carriers. You have to have a gunner to turn it on or give permission to engage, but after that it's the computer doing the shooting, your reflexes don't matter.
