I saw it a lot in my last DF game (or even worse like the Scout shooting eyes with two arrows at range pretty regularly). The swashbuckler in particular often targeted chinks in order to get anything through DR. With skill 24 a -8 still gives you an effective skill of 16; that doesn't even affect your crit chance!
