In addition, it might be due to my first time with GURPS, but the autofire rules are a little detailed, all that extra lead flying around.

All-in-all I liked the experience, but I'm not sure if I would run it again.

Can you offer any recommendation to use the GURP system, but scale back the detailness of it? I like the idea of the system, but a little too detailed for me and my group.

I don't recommend GURPS, period.
