You're exactly right Mike, the role of reconnaissance (at least when I was first taught it - the wording has since changed slightly) is "to obtain accurate and tactical information on the enemy and ground in a theatre of war and report it back to a higher command in a timely fashion". Long story short, as a reconnaissance soldier if you have to fire your weapon, you have failed.
