Do you realize exactly how hard it will be to kill someone with this much armor, using a 1D6+1 gun? You would need to roll a six, and then roll again and get something almost as good. I would consider my army roughly equivalent to clone troopers, and they have 7 armor (without a die roll) and guns with 1D6+3 damage. The chance of a 1D6+3 gun killing a trooper with AV 7 is exactly 1/2.
I must not have written this section of the rulebook very clearly, because I read this same argument over and over again. If someone has so much armor that it's incredibly difficult to kill him with one shot... use two. Little guns do just as much damage as a big gun, if you have enough of them.
I think it was one of the things that made the 2001 games a lot more interesting, tactically; you had to coordinate attacks a lot more, since troops working alone had less ability to be effective.
