This might sound like a really noobish question but isn't the pistol round the very first round of a match? Because it seems like ive only won 12 matches and I don't see how that's possible seeing as all I play is competitive.

The pistol round is the first round of each side (1st and 16th) on Classic Competitive. Not Classic Casual.

Usually this has a huge role on momentum as the team who wins the Pistol Round gets more money to buy better things, usually giving a nice few rounds until the other team can catch up.

Pistol round is the first round of the match where it's basically a flat rush of getting kills. Whoever wins the round usually is able to buy the stronger guns in the 2nd round which can lead to usually deciding who wins the match. However, in most competitive games, the first round is a very reserved round of picking off people trying to gain the advantage.
