Silas, I pretty much agree with your analysis but being "under sniper fire" does mean being shot at. One cannot be "under fire" if there is no firing taking place. So if you come under fire it means somebody is actively trying to kill you or those around you. If you are in an area where there has been sniper activity there is a possibility that you may come under sniper fire, may be nerve wracking but not the same thing. And claiming it is little different from a phoney Veteran claiming battle experience he never had.
