Hey Grey, I think you missed that he's already point all this out. . . the environment thing.

I suspect you know how to handle a handgun, not questioning that, but it's not an easy skill to learn for anyone starting off.
Not necessarily, I held the POW camp with a USP Springer once. And did a fair job with just my Hi-cappa when I ran out of ammo a couple times for my Armalite last season. And this season I took three pistols with me and no primary, it was fun. Mag changers are a bitching with both hands occupied, but the added ammo count makes up for that.
Also, my stock Hi-cappa (on propane) has about the same range and accuracy as a stock Armalites , which is fantastic and why I want many more mags for it.
Like Goldman said, you can dominate with a pistol depending the enviroment and how you play.
