Refers to the exploits of an aim-bot gamer, who elects to utilize a standard, usually subpar, secondary weapon (pistol) as their primary long range (sniping) device.

Most notoriously encountered in G1's APB:Reloaded, free to play title for the PC, and through fellow games utilizing the Punk Buster software.
