In the rules for shooting, it says 'You must shoot at the closest enemy' unless 'a more distant target if it is easier to hit'
The examples it give at that point (pg13 LR refer to cover, So i would assume it would work the same for shooting a target while using a weapon with a negitive at short range
ie: enemy in open in front of me (<12") while using a long rifle (-1 at short) so the enemey who is 20" is an easier target,(also in the open) as the nearest is at -1, while the long range one isn't.
However! it goes
1) decide to shoot
2) choose target
3) check range
so I wouldn't know it's an easier target until i had already chosen my target.
So! does that mean:
a) I cannot, as range isn't checked till later, and I'll be forced to mostly use my -1 to hit,
b) I can, as long as it's clear (as in, no 10-14" ish)
c) I can declare a far target, but if they 'aren't' easier to hit shot misses
d) I can declare a far target, but if they 'aren't' easier to hit shot aims for nearest person instead
