When you fire after aiming, and you miss with a margin of failure of half or less the combined accuracy and scope bonus of your weapon (to a maximum of three), you do not have to shoot. You see the cross hairs are not on your target, so it would be pointless to pull the trigger. This saves on ammo, eliminates long reloading times, and may keep from alerting your target that you are drawing a bead on him.
