I'm not the only one who is sceptical about using the bonuses from telescopic sights and rangefinders at close range.

That a modern assault rifle with a sight mounted 3" over the bore and zeroed at 50 yards has a bullet path that does not deviate more than 2" from the line of sight within 250 yards.

And now I am wondering what a passive rangefinding sensor would look like...
