A few hundred feet, I believe. It would probably be the Stinger missile.

The Stinger POST has a range of roughly 4 miles.

The Javelin ATGM i think is about 2000 meters, but i was never instructed on it or qual'd on it, so i'd have to ask a few current grunts. 2000 meters is probably close to the ballpark though.
