Add to that the commonly understood expectation has been that pistols were used when entering close quarters/built up areas where engagements were often less than 25ft. - this was a safety expectation. An added benefit of this was that it cut down on rage quits.
Not too sure players are (intentionally) using pistols to engage targets from 100ft.; pretty sure players don't want to be digging out BB embedded in their skin.
Where's the value of having a pistol that shoots 450? Trying to understand the benefit.
