On the weapons table, I see references to snapfire (for instance, the Barrett .50 lists it). I could not find any explanation of what it means in terms of game mechanics.

Can anyone point me to the page where this is explained? I have SW Deluxe Explorer's Edition.

I believe what you are looking for is on Page 55 of the Deluxe rules.

Snapfire Penalty: Certain weapons, such as sniper rifles, are very inaccurate if fired “from the hip” rather than using their excellent sights or scopes. If the character moves in the action he fires, he suffers a –2 penalty.
