Don't get me wrong, I agree with him. He has a good point, I just want both sides to be pleased. Those looking for extra realism for a more tense experience. And those who find it un-necessary to have a feature like this with an already tense experience. Regardless, it was good to get both sides of the fence on the forum. It was nice to have a debate even if me and Yems did team up on Ol' Pep. Haha. Had to write this out twice, what a pain.
One way I think it could work would be that it would only show ammo if you fire the gun. Not when you aim it, but when you fire it. So when you fire it, it shows you the ammo count for a few short seconds. Then, once you put down the gun the ammo count goes away. This way, it is part of the hud, but at the same time you don't really know how much ammo you have unless you fire your gun. I think this could work for both sides of the debate.
