I like the flare gun, but it's all preference.

Flare gun for better range characteristics if you can land the crit; Shotgun for better general utility; Reserve Shooter for airblast mini-crit combos.

If you can aim, flare gun.
If you can't, shot gun.

Both are very good for different situations. Overall I prefer the shotgun. :)

Flare is a lot better for long range (Shotgun does like 3-6 at long range), and helps with short range as well, getting those 90 damage crits on burning players and such.

Shotgun is better against other Pyros, as you can do decent damage against them with it.

Flare Gun is better IMO. If there an enemy you can do decent damage with using the Shotgun, you can still just burn them.

Shotgun extends your primary's range, while the flare gun allows to neutralise long range opponents and can kill close range enemies as well, assuming you can land the shots.

3-6 damage is good enough to delay the critical healing on people who've been out of the fight for 10 seconds or more and is much easier to aim than flares.
