Agreed on all counts.

No doubt competitive shooting is some awesome training for gun handling. I've progressed as a shooter by leaps and bounds in the last year + a few months because I started shooting USPSA. 2 and 4-day defensive handgun is practically nothing compared to USPSA. TH and ATH are fun and challenging, but the shoot houses and scenarios they run you through in TH/ATH is really mind blowing. Tactics and strategy from there are WAYYYY more important than leveling up your classification in USPSA, imo.
