What device? Not really sure what your questions are. Be a bit more specific. What type of competitions are you considering?

You absolutely need a cool hat.

Honestly, you're being so vague, its nearly impossible to help you.

You should research this on your own to decide what class you'll be shooting. When you decide that, you should them know what you'll need.

Really, are you talking holsters, timers, belts, mag holders, smithing and repair parts and tools....

What? These people need to know exactly what your talking about to be about to help you. A "device" for competition could even include a vehicle to ride to the competition in. Narrow it down a bit and these people WILL help you out. They're generally a pretty friendly and helpful bunch.

Lol! Yeah that does clear it up quite a bit!

I don't shoot competitively, but, when I decide to take that step, the first thing I'm going to do is go watch a few shoots to get the idea of how they go.

I shoot in local plate matches and plan to get into Steel challenge when time permits. As for advice for pistol competitions:

Get a pistol that you are able to compete with, run it well, and are familiar with. Then practice as much as you can. Dry fire, target aquisition, start slow and gradually increase speed. A shot timer helps to see what you are doing overall. Shooting thousands of rounds will help more than buying a $4k gun and not practicing much.
