No, what Spartan meant to say was:

 

If you score a hit on a target and roll a natural 9 or 10 to make that hit with a weapon that has the Blaster SA then you get to roll another roll to see if you did critical damage.

 

Basically, all other weapons get a chance of a crit if you roll a 10, blaster guns get a chance of a crit on a 9 or a 10, but you still have to hit to get that chance.

Maybe it will help to reframe the issue with rules from another game:

 

The Crit Threat range increase in CAV2, is just like the Crit Threat range in AD&D on weapons with 19-20, 18-20, etc.

 

You have to hit the model before you can roll for Critical Damage, no matter what the die says.

 

In both D&D and CAV, there is an auto hit rule - (20 and 10 respectively). You auto hit, and then you roll for Critical Damage.

 

Any other roll, you determine success of hit as normal - d10 plus modifiers (RAV, Range Band, Salvo, Piercer, Shredder, etc etc) must equal or exceed the Target's DV. If you do hit, and your attack roll was a Natural 9, you then roll a second time to determine if you add Critical Damage. But that Natural 9 does not grant you an automatic hit.

That is exactly what I meant. ::):
