But, If you want it more lethal I would suggest raising the DC from 15 to 18 if you feel people arent getting killed.

Now, keep in mind, if you are just firing this in a round, you aren't really aiming that well, so the results could easily represent grazing wounds, shooting painful-yet-nonlethal areas like the hands or feet or limbs, hitting the opponent's armor and not the opponent, and so on.
Perhaps, if you are frustrated by this, you could let Aiming also let the PCs increase the damage bonus of their attacks, or let them take a penalty to attacks to get a damage bonus (it's harder to hit a vital area, but it's more likely to incapacitate the opponent). I wouldn't do it 1/1, but I'm sure there's some way you could handle it. [/i]

Your players consistently rolled 11 or better on Toughness saves?

No, I just run out of monsters before their luck leaves them...

If they failed *some* Toughness saves, even by a small margin, they are Hurt and any future Toghness saves are penalized by -1. That penalty is cumulative. That wasn't taking them down either?
