When it comes to shooting stances, you have three choices:

1. Isosceles

2. Weaver

3. Fighting

Summary according to the author:

Isosceles is gay because recoil control.

Weaver will get you killed in the streets.

Fighting Stance is for Badass MOFOs with 4th grade reading and writing skills ya heard.

I thought this stance thing was overrated. Did something change? Is stance the new hotness that’s going to produce the next batch of gms?

It's really technical rocket science level stuff. Square up to the target and move your foot a couple inches.

*cough*its just iso stance with modified footing *cough*

 

also I thought weaver was first, replace by iso.  But f me, I actually read history.

I was taught the "Modified Isosceles" about 20 years ago in the Marines by Jerry Barnhart. (OK, not actually Jerry Barnhart.  But the Burner taught the guy that taught me...)

 

Basically is was a gamer stance but for shooting people.

 

Years later when I became a gamer I found it good for USPSA because I could shoot cardboard targets in every direction.

 

It's funny, nobody every told me, "hey, that will get you lost in a match."

 

Oddly it looked like the Isoceles and the "Fighting" stance.

If you need a particular 'stance' to shoot well, you are doing it wrong. If you can shoot from any stance/position and while moving, you can get better scores in gun games, and probably less kilt in the streetz too.

I put zero effort or thought into stance. If speed,accuracy and draw are acceptable then I guess so is your stance.

I wish I could find the pictures I had of the guy shooting center axis relock at a match.


Ben told me, "Grip it harder."

If he was serious you deprived Doodie of some comedy gold bro. We must know where we can find this knight of USPSA.

The Weaver Stance has become very popular and replaced the Isosceles as the standard taught to most new shooters.

 

LOL who the fuck is this moron?

I feel taking shooting/stance advice from someone with a grip like that is... unwise. With those bear paws that little G19 should be basically just a barrel poking out, instead we can see the entire beavertail and frame. Excellent.

On a serious note, why don't people teach stance in the obvious (to me at least) way, which is to just tell the student to assume a comfortable athletic stance. Most every person has played a sport at some point and were taught the general athletic stance. Football, base/softball, volleyball, tennis, wrestling, etc all share a common athletic stance. Feet about shoulder width apart, knees slightly bent, strong side foot slightly back, hands in front. Then the only thing that you need to specifically instruct is the grip and arm position. 

 

Or maybe that is how people instruct their students.

The dudes with any sort of sports experience feel they know all they need to know about shooting already and don't sign up for basic classes.

They then demonstrate the all-weight-on-your-heels, get-your-face-as-far-away-from-the-noisy-thing-as-possible stance.

Use the rules. Don't DQ someone who doesn't do anything DQable. -- Da Beard.
