do they hit on fives because of the multiple shot rule?
Any other comments on pistoliers are welcome!

depends on what you're shooting at. You take in all the normal modifiers into account (except for range and moving for pistols)
For example. If you moved 12 inches and stopped to fire at a beast herd in some woods, then you would hit on 7's because of these negative modifiers; skirmishing, light cover/woods, multiple shots for brace of pistols.
This is the reason I actually upgrade to outrider with my pistoliers with a repeater pistol. He's 1 point cheaper, but has the same amount of shots as having 6 pistoliers and he also hits better due to better Balistic Skill. Musician is standard on all fast cav (except for maybe goblins whose leadership is so pitiful, it may/may not be worth it.)
