Weapon firing reaction time seems slow

Ive noticed a few things when i press the mouse button to fire:

About a third of a second after i fire, the gun registers the action. Yea, a third of a second isnt a particularly long time, and i LOVE the fact that the bullets arent hitscan (ie, they travel at a speed other then light), But it makes it a pain in the ass to hit a moving target, i have no qualms compensating my aim for the realistic bullets, but i shouldn't have to dually compensate for a "clunky trigger finger".

The other thing is it cuts my FPS in half while im firing, stacked with the other issues, i get a hefty challenge aiming at close moving targets.

Don't get me wrong, I'm loving this game, It's just the mouse input performance and smoothness isnt optimized IMO, And i'm wondering if there will be a patch for it in the near future.

BTW: My game runs quite smooth, and all my drivers are up to date.
I also use a PS/2 port mouse if that matters any.

That's really odd. I haven't encountered that. Anyone else?

Yup I'm getting it too a bit, Some lag issues with movement....At first I thought I was having battery issues (logitech 3000 KB and a logitech MX1000 laser mouse). But both a well charged or have fresh batteries.

Then I realized it was lag.... It's a pretty game, and the rain effects are quite realistic. But lag???

My specs:
Intel e6700
2048 corsair XMS
E-vga 8800 GTX
E-vga 680i ultra MoBo

All game settings are stock (for "testing" except for music which I always turn off.

Well so far so good but I don't like the lag...its been so long sinse I had any I'd forgotten what it's like
