If you ever find yourself in a SD situation, I doubt very much you'll be doing much breath control. Practical shooting requires recoil control so you can get back on target as fast as possible. IPSC/USPSA and IDPA are timed events and as such create stress. This is good for practicing self defense, although in a limited way.

Slow fire target shooting teaches you to hit a target. Self defense shooting is under enormous stress, while both you and the target are moving.

I suggest you take some self defense shooting classes. Do you ever draw your gun from a holster? From under your shirt or jacket?

Slow fire target shooting is not nearly the right kind of practice for SD.
