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:
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..
