The highest DPS output for the skill trees is primary Brawn with some secondary points in Gunzerk.
No. She. You use two of the same you get boosted DMG. Keep firing makes you more accurate the longer you shoot. There is no possible way a pistol will out DMG anything their cap is just too low. That's not to say they don't have a use though.
