I believe that this discussion is based on wrong premises.

Self-defence is a serious matter and the basis for the selection of the most appropriate gun for your specific situation should be based on self defense only. The range sessions are to acquire the best possible SD skills with the gun you carry.
Remember that SD skills are based on reflex reactions and you should make sure that you do not lower your SD skills with your carry gun when you train with another gun. Precision shooting at range should be considered as a leisure activity only, and you have to accept the compromises of your SD gun.

To resume; you buy the best SD gun for your specific situation, with no compromises for dual use considerations. Remember that modified guns for competition can present safety risks, reliability or accidental discharge, for SD use.

Finally, if you are serious with competition, and have the budget, you buy supplemental guns specialised in the disciplines you compete.
