Pistols Kinda suck
 
I know they arnt meant to be super powerfull but compared to other weapons they are pants...

Sometiems it feels like im shooting blanks at the feds only chance I eve have of killign them is if i pull of an expose and lunge them for the exploit...

Either Pistols need to have their damage increased or trhey need to have better chances or %'ages of gettign procs for Exposes...

What do you guys think?

Do I just suck at ground PvP or somthing?

all ground weapons have the same base dps for the mk, a mk IV pistol will have the same damage as a mk IV assault rifle. but it will have a shorter range and a different secondary ability.

So Im not sure its the pistols damage that the issue, perhaps looking into different specials on the pistols (theres some good ones) would be a good idea

Not true. Pistols do less per shot but fire nearly twice as fast.
Another great thing about pistols: I'm a science captain, and always bring 2 or 3 science officers with me on away teams... there's usually always one or more targets painted with the big old Exploit bullseye on them, with a pistol, you can disintegrate more targets with the faster fire.

Get a plasma stun pistol Mark IV.. or V .. it works alright. Max skill in pistols and be ready to stun and then switch guns to finish the expose with an exploit

their hits may be less but the DPS is the same.
