Well, don't consider only my opinion. Others have valid points too. Besides, a good pistol cost almost as much as a good rifle, so if you want both, prepare to spend mucho $$$.
It all comes down to your budget, and when other recommend that you buy an AEG first, they are probably right, as having an AEG allows you to play both in CQB and outside. If your budget is limited, getting an AEG first is probably a better choice. If you have a lot of money to spend, they by all means, get a good pistol first, and whenever you get tired of it, buy an AEG and you will have both.
