Now these are realistic, deadly, and guarantee a lot of fun and tactical play.

And a game card would be nice, please.

It's also a lot of unnecessary dice rolls and addition. These stats just don't sound very... fun. it just seems like more of a chore to use a sniper than anything.

I like snipers. I playtested it, in a scenario with 2 opposing houses. 2 snipers kicked a lot os asses. It really works and there is ownage.

How about YOU playtest it?

I just give my snipers the Marksmanship ability, which adds +1 to their Skill with ranged weapons and subtracts 1 from their skill with CC weapons.
Just one random act of violence can brighten your day. Especially if it involves explosives.

I just make my snipers awesome. Who needs special rules? I saw either use the 2001 book, or make it awesome as you go along.
I think those stats only apply to non-Mexicans.
