[RPG] Is it possible to have a ranged attack of opportunity


I have a player that is looking to create a house rule for the Beast Protector feat that would allow him to use his basic ranged attack rather than his basic melée attack. This works thematically from the perspective of the ranger as a ranged combat expert (Robin Hood archetype), but I worry about play balance. All of which leads to the question: is there a build/feat/power that would allow a player to substitute their ranged basic attack in place of their basic melée attack for attacks of opportunity?

Sharpshooter - Ranger's paragon path from Martial Power (p.67) has this:

Opportunity Fire (11th level): You can use a bow or a loaded crossbow to make opportunity attacks. These attacks don’t provoke opportunity attacks.
