Done. I had to take workaroundish approach due to complexity of the system, but I'm happy with results. Here's how I done it:
*on action menu is Range Only Toggle option, when turned on/off fnc_visual message displays on or off message and FCS is toggled in Range Only mode
*when lasing in Range Only mode, RANGE ONLY text appears next to range, previous gun correction is kept until overwritten by another

*RANGE ONLY text in russian
*add user key for this action
*maybe make it more bug proof (during my tests it worked flawless but who know what can happen on laggy MP session)
