Today we were playtesting (Just Nick me and a friend who never played before). I had an Ossian and rushed a vampire with it. The defending player used and auspex-card to get intercept on another vampire and blocked with it.

The point of using that vampire, was that it had a sniper rifle. Since he played auspex, he can't us the strike-ability from the rifle. But can the player still automatically set the range to long and skip the range determination step?

I thought he could not, since it would imply you have to use the weapon strike and you are forbidden to do so. However, Nick thought it was possible. We called Bram, who thought it was not possible, but wasn't sure either. So... Dear rules-guru's please enlightend me ;)

and though We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

I think it is better to throw this one at the VEKN Forum.
I understand the confusion, but I think that there is a ruling on Hidden Lurker that indicates that you cannot maneuver with a weapon if you can not strike. In a similar way, that would imply that you can not use the range setting ability of Sniper Rifle if you can not strike with it.
