Default Pulse rifles rapid fire

ok this is a bit of an annoying little question, but there's no FAQ to post it in so i have to start a new topic.

with most models, i.e. a space marines boltgun it fires 1 shot at 24" if u stay still, but fires 2 shots at 12".

now me and the people i play with have decided that the rules say rapid fire weapons fire 2 shots at 12", but i've seen people saying that a pulse rifle can fire 15" rapid fire since its full range is 30" meaning rapid fire weapons fire at half their total range

now i don't think thats right but i can't help but doubt myself, is this the case or not?

12".

It's under Rapid fire in the 5th ed (and 4th ed) rulebook, they clearly state 12" and not half-range. Anyone arguing for half-range (15" in the case of tau pulse rifle) are being dishonest anf greedy.
