Good man, nothing will humble you more than free pistol. I was sad to hear it had been cut from the Olmypics. I would contend after being a professional firearms instructor for 5 years for one of the nations top 15 largest police departments, that most people conflate shooting and manipulating the weapon. I have attended literally several thousand hours of formal firearms and tactics training in my life, and fired at this point probably close to 3/4 of a million rounds in everything from slow fire .22lr to crew served weapons off the back of a moving vehicle at moving targets, and even out of a helicopter. When you get down to it exactly 1 thing in our control, controls where the bullet goes. Where the muzzle is pointed at the moment the shot breaks. This is furthered affected, second order, by where the shooter aimed the weapon (and I mean the sense of intentionally faced the muzzle towards a given point), and how their trigger pull affected that aim. Everything else is even another layer removed. Working barricades, mag changes, target transitions, unconventional shooting positions, etc. Are all manipulation skills with a weapon, breaking the shot comes down to weapon alignment and trigger pull. Even hanging in a harness inverted engaging through a window, "aim the gun, pull the trigger without screwing your aim up." The olympic disciplines and the precision disciplines are the distillation of "aim the gun, pull the trigger without screwing your aim up." Does it teach me how to clear a room or fight around cars, heck no. I would however be far more confident at taking a 25 yard shot while roll over prone under car, if I know that I can make hits at that distance all day long. I can practice all of these other skills (movement, transitions, etc.) without going live. Depending on your locale and neighbors, vehicle drills can even be accomplished drive in your driveway. Yes it's good to occasionally put rounds on target to verify your dry practice is working, but so often people get really wrapped around a very simplistic SHOOTING task.
