Pistol doesn't have a ton of room, go down to Airplane, it's pretty open and no burned trees. It's only about a mile down (left side), or just camp at Indian and enjoy the outhouse!
Saddle is a good camp it's just small and could be wet. I would shoot for Scout or Fire Island, FI is pretty black and the big pondo out front feel a few years back. Scout has plenty of room for your group, plus you can walk to sheepeater and soak your bones after a long day on the top-end. Don't worry about being loaded, you'll be fine. Don't rig anything on the floor, suspend it so the weight is on the tubes, keep your floor soft and if you're going to ground out push and get some momentum, you'll thank me later!
Have a good time.
