In attack or defense rolls you do NOT use skill points to turn possible misses into success, you roll against the appropriate Combat Technique stat, in this case Ranged Combat Stat (which equals SR of the Ranged Combat Technique modified by Dex, as per p. 51) , which you will find detailed on p. 241 and following. That is you roll a d20 and will succeed on roll equal or under said stat (modified by any relevant modifiers).
And your right. My bad.
