I prefer the Intervention over the .50 cal for the Bolt Action as well. I'm not trying to show off, I'm not trying to act amazing, and I'm aware the .50 cal would make more sense to use, but I'm more comfortable with the Intervention. As for the quick scoping debate, there's a huge problem with people's views of it. In Modern Warfare 2 people abuse quick scoping ideal purpose. You see people rushing in trying to get amazing quick scoping, when all they're doing is getting kills and 20% of the time achieving some points. Now I don't title myself an amazing quick scoper, but I do say that I have the feel for it, and have really got the hang of it. Though I only do it when I need to. For instance, if I'm being rushed while sniping, well **** I'm obviously going to try to quick scope him rather then die. By quick scoping the cross hair shortens in that 3 seconds you pull LT, thus making it more 'accurate'. I do this because it's satisfying obviously, and it's my way to live. Though make it clear I don't thrash around the map trying to score some 'montage' quick scopes, and impress people. I do it to survive when necessary.
