It depends what you mean by better. if you go to a high RES in a Sidewinder with pulse lasers, you can shoot any ship that's already engaged and they don't shoot back, so it's totally safe. You can go to a high RES in a fully-engineered Corvette with microweave cooling hoses in your hold (pirates go nuts for them) and yawn, while you fly you ship one handed, blasting everything in sight. Alternatively, you can take an FDL with plasma or rail guns and see how many Eagles you can get (if any). Wherever you go, a tricked out Corvette is going to kill the most and the fastest. After that, you choose whatever you want to have whatever fun and risk you want.
