COrrup, do you mean use the mouse wheel for weapon select? Because I think that would solve a lot of problems, as well.

Nop. It seems hotkey 2 mapping is missing within the game engine as there is no Hotkey2 variable to begin with. So it takes game developers to fix it by changing the game sourcecode or crackers to add it to binary although the last will be illegal.
I suspect that replacing the silly 'ammo switch' function of hotkey 2 will take some kinda heavy script editing, and that we may have to wait for the New Vegas Script Extender to be released, but here's hoping someone figures out a quick and dirty workaround in the meantime.
The quick and dirty workaround is to change Ammo Switch hotkey to something else and set 5-th to 8-th hotkey to keyboard button "2" by editing [Controls] section of FalloutPrefs.ini. Then setting preferred "2-weapon" to chosen ( 5-th to 8-th ) hotkey ingame.
Examle remapping of Ammo Switch to "backspace" key and 8-th hotkey to "2" key:
Hotkey1=0002FFFF Hotkey8=0003FFFF Hotkey3=0004FFFF Hotkey4=0005FFFF Hotkey5=0006FFFF Hotkey6=0007FFFF Hotkey7=0008FFFF Ammo Swap=000E0201

But when I set the ammoswap to backspace, it also changed ammo when I changed View with the middlemousebutton.
If anyone has the same problem, I recomment just binding it to #8.

Will go into my most important ini hack save file.
