Hi alien good at hear from yah! I'm like you, I like 'em nice n loud with a kick like a mule.....well maybe a small pony lol .
While I like aspects of both devs games I prefer 3arc guns they sound and kick and little more "realistically" for me and look a little more worn and beaten which I prefer.
I am quite looking foward to using the FAL and M16. I like the mw3 MK14 but not so their M16.
Oh and the BO Gallil iron sights and no suppressor let folks know where you were....saved all the running about.
