Personally, this is the only game in town that helps handgun hunters shoot better.
Not sure how I feel about this statement. It may be true in your area though.
I never saw this game being practical at all for hunting (In terms of shooting in the field at game), with the exception of developing off-hand shooting skill, shooting under pressure, and developing a good grip/trigger press skill-set.
I am not against this discipline. I am happy for everyone that enjoys it.

I used a 14 inch 30/30 contender with a 2x-6x Bushnell Trophy at this match. This gun is a known performer and meatmaker. More impressive than my 40 of 40 score was a perfect 40 fired by a revolver...with iron sights! I watched through 10x binoculars as the shooter willfully and intentionally knocked over the targets from 50 to 200 meters with the precision I previously only thought possible with a single shot. It was a Freedom Arms 353 chambered in 357 mag with 200 grain Hornady FTX bullets at approximately 1280 fps. Through the glass, I could see the bullets in flight. Several other shooters used their Freedom revolvers to good effect. I was amazed and my head has been reeling over the potential of those awesome wheelguns. My idea of what is possible with an accurate revolver has been changed forever .
Well built revolvers can shoot very small groups, even past 200 yards. You have to have good equipment, but it is a systems approach with the shooter usually being the weakest link-At least that is the way it is with me.
