My response is use the one which you can hit with.
I do question some of the posters ascertain that pistols out range shotguns. I personally know deer hunters who routines take deer at 100 yards with a 12 ga using both OO buck and slugs.
Other than a long range handgun shooters and bullseye competitors, most pistol shooters can't hit a fifty yard target let alone one at 100 yards. My ISPA club in AR would not let me design courses because I all ways included 2 fifty yard targets. The start target and the end target. Other than a couple of guys who were hunters or ex bullseye shooters none of the others could hit the targets.
