For all the replies. The good news is, I had already figured out 90% of what ya'll told me on my own. The bad news is, I had already figured out 90% of what ya'll told me on my own and still suck.
I was set up with the peace keeper with quick draw, fmj, and target finder add ons. I don't even carry a second gun. I've quit trying to pick up second guns as well as it seemed to always get me killed trying to use them. I changed up my perks based on what was recommended. The engineer perk is great. I still use scavenger as I seem to unload a lot of shots per kill, and need to be able to get the extra ammo.
I've been playing custom games with twice as many opposing bots as teammate bots, and managed to double my kill/death ratio tonight taking all the advice. Another few days of this, and I may be ready to play online with my boy and his pre teen friends.
