Default Open vs. Closed

Does anyone here prefer Open Bolt vs. Closed bolt, or vise versa?

Depending on the weapon your interested in.. you have no choice.

Open bolt allows dirt and dust to get in the bolt area. Closed bolt will obviously keep things a little cleaner.

Close bolt will require you to "charge the weapon" after inserting a new magazine.
