Well, weapons do have ranges, but they don't have range bands, like in other games. They have an attack die instead, and attacks are made by rolling the weapon's attack die attack die + the ship's fire control vs. the range in hexes, so a ship making an attack at range 6 would require a six or better to hit the target, and so on.

Rifleman III is correct. It sounds a little odd, so to further explain, some weapons shoot with a D6, others a D10. They can have plus modifiers of +1, +2, or +3.
Example: Your ship has two railguns in a hardpoint and two fire controls. You are shooting at an enemy ship 7 hexes away. You would roll 2D10 (each railgun gets a dice) and add +2 (for the fire controls) so on a 5+2=7 you hit.
