I've been shooting USPSA and IDPA for fifteen years, and have been involved in new-shooter instruction, and over the years, I'd say the most common reason why people don't continue in the sport is because they can't stand to do something at which they are not good!
I've never seen anyone who was an especially good competition shooter right out of the box, but you'll never get any better if you stop now.
My introduction to competition shooting was also via bowling pins, and while the man-to-man aspect was exhilarating, as a former basketball player, I thought shooting pins was like shooting freethrows compared to actually playing basketball; pins is practicing freethrows to IDPA's full-court game.
