I'm looking for a build for an Dual Pistol User... i tried Dandwiki...but i couldn't really find one i think.  You guys know one?
First off, Dandwiki is awful. Full of idiots and awful homebrew. Avoid it like the plague.

More on topic, yes, in pathfinder. However, like most of pathfinder, it's trash. There might be something in Iron Kingdoms, but I don't remember off the top of my head.

I admire your newfound zest fot the game. 24 hours, Sword & Board, Paladin, Holy Warror, Gunslinger. Makes me smile.

Accept the fact that the rules are made so that nobody gets to be great (or greatest), ever. Only "greater". Otherwise, the other players would have no fun.

It sucks.

That said, you have two choices.  I don't know your other gamers.  Play like most people, and compete, "look what I can do!". Or play like us old foggies, and see if the story is worth telling again, outside the game, when the numbers are long forgotten.

When it really comes down to it, that paladin or pistol slinger story will count, not the hit points you had.

That said, pistols exist, but they suck, like crossbows. No strength, high reload time, all that. There is a feat for catching someone flat-footed I think I read somewhere, but that's it. Might work once for a sneak attack, but the game is set up to disallow that for your benefit, so that you don't get killed without warning.

Others will chime in, I'm exhausted
Try the Soulbow, since you can make your mind bolts look like anything you want.

I do, however, have one last lesson on this subject. That last one? The only build in this post that can one-shot average opponents[by dealing twice as much damage as they have HP? I would argue that it is not optimized. Why isn't it optimized? Because it's overkill. Overkill is NOT optimizing. This means that there are portions of this build dedicated to damage which can safely be removed and thrown elsewhere. For example, you probably don't need both Leap Attack AND Headlong Rush at the same time. You could pick up Extra Rage feats for stamina, feats to support AoO effects, feats that work towards potential prestige classes, and so on. However, you could also shift our ability scores around somewhat. I mean, if you're getting results like that with 16 starting Strength, maybe you can lower it to 14, and free up four points to spend somewhere else - perhaps back into Charisma, giving you some oomph for Intimidating Rage or Imperious Command if you want. You can continue to tune this until it deals "enough" damage - and that "enough" does not need to be "100%". It could easily be, say, 80% (leaving the rest to the team), if your DM is the sort who would ban one-hit killers.

So when do you think Bachmann will be saying she met a mother the previous night that had a son who got a blood transfusion using a gay guy's blood, and now the son is retardedly gay?
When she meets CJ's mom?

There is, but like the most of iron kingdoms... its trash. 

Basically it suffers from the same problems as the PF one. (IIRC, haven't read it in years.)
