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.
"It is long been a principle of ours that one is no more armed because he has possession of a firearm than he is a musician because he owns a piano. There is no point in having a gun if you are not capable of using it skillfully." -- Jeff Cooper
