Pretty self-explanatory, but I was surprised at how little I used a pistol/revolver. I got the rifle one without trying, but had to purposefully start using pistols for this one.

same as #2.
i too had to start purposefully using the pistol. its not hard to get kills with them, but rifles are so much more efficient in the game play. u tend to use it without thinking.

1: Stock up on chewing tobacco and medicine, etc. Also revolver amunition, of course. Everything.
2: Go to a gang hideout and rope up the bounty target.
3: Ride to the outskirts of the Sherrif's office town. (not too close or the gang will stop pursuing you)
4: Stop. Squads of 3 and 4 will come to you.
5: Use dead eye everytime and score head shots to concurrently work towards the 'Bullseye' acheivement.

Also works for the "Long Arm of Marston" ach.

Does it count towards killing civilians during Free Roam?

does this count all people killed or is it only enemies because in the stats it says "people killed with ______"

I'm same as you cwagmire.
I've completed the game and I'm about 70 kills off. Guess I'll just re-do a hideout or something. o_o

The achievement can be aquired in Undead Nightmare too in case anyone was wondering. I did everything in normal single player, got the rifle achievement without even trying and just kept forgetting to use a pistol or revolver most of the time, or would use up all my ammo and then forget to replace it lol. So I ended up using a pistol/revolver almost through the entirety of Undead Nightmare and got it.

Actually found an interesting glitch when I got this one. Like many people, I missed it in the normal game so I was playing Undead Nightmare trying to finish this one up, and I ran out of pistol bullets. I threw a Boom Bait out, switched to a revolver, and started looting the bodies during the lull. When the Boom Bait went off, I got the acheivement. It seems it gives you credit for the weapon in your hand when the Boom Bait goes off.

I didn't try it with dynamite, but its possible it works with that as well. But in a swarm of zombies, Boom Bait helps get this achievement if you are running low on ammo for your pistol.

Got it by redoing Fort Mercer 8-10 times after beating the game. I am about to buy the Undead Nightmare but I want to shoot zombies with a shotgun like it is meant to be so I wanted to get this one done before getting the expansion :)

If you equip a gun that works for the achievement, you can ride around on death in the undead nightmare dlc and the kills count towards.
