Sure, you go to the range when you can. Every year or two you take a professional class and tune up your skills. You may even get in some force-on-force training once in a rare while. However, if you are looking for an inexpensive bang for your buck to maximize and (more importantly) test your abilities under stress, then join your local gun club and compete in an action shooting match.Whether you shoot an IDPA® match, IPSC/USPSA® match, Steel Challenge® match, or 3-Gun, you are sure to put your shooting skills to the test. Action shooting matches truly test your ability to shoot, perform reloads, move and shoot, and think in a fairly stressful environment. No, there isn't anybody shooting back at you. But that 16-year-old kid who shoots before you and smokes the stage with perfect hits and a blazing fast time will make you work for your shots. Especially after you just finished telling him how many years you've been shooting and all the schools you've attended. Its go time now! You will be under the watchful eye of range officials, spectators, and other competitors. Believe me, this is stressful. It took me many years to get myself to a shooting competition. I always thought, "that's not my thing", or, "I train for the 'real world'". Well, let me be the first to tell you, when that 16-year-old amateur smoked me in a match, it was humbling, and it was the real world. Bottom line; the action shooting sports will increase your speed, force you to think and shoot, force you to move and shoot, and it will be stressful. Oh yeah . . . you'll have fun too! Guaranteed.

I do find it interesting while Law Enforcement, the Government, & the Media will tell you to leave it in the hands of professionals, the training companies, know you may will need the training as you will be the one there when the smelly stuff hits the fan.
