That's not necessarily the question. Of course competition by its nature will be unrealistic. The purpose of "practical" competition is to practice and test basic skills stress: moving quickly and safely with a loaded gun; shooting quickly and accurately; engaging multiple targets shooting from unconventional postures or awkward positions; manipulating objects while shooting (e. g., opening doors, carrying things, etc.), reloading, among others.
