Taking the above into account, it's not hard to understand someone when they simply say "Sniper;" it's just stupid.
I find those terms offensive... I insist we use the correct term for a snipers weapon:

Precision weapon/rifle or
Optically scoped precision weapon.... add the word "system" at the end for a more dramatic effect

But dont even think about putting the words "long range" in front of that definition cause that would be... sad..

No deal!
