Video: Shooting Stance And Self-Defense

Is there a proper handgun shooting stance when it comes to self-defense?

Modern shooters are typically faced with a dichotomy when it comes to a handgun shooting stances: Weaver and Isosceles. Firearms trainers, range buddies and self-defense experts endlessly drum away about the virtues of their preferred deportment, making it the panacea of pistol and revolver marksmanship. That’s all fine and good on the firing line, but away picking one shooting stance over the other proves a false choice.

Dynamic shooting events – say 3 a.m. in an empty parking lot when your life is on the line – is not time to play favorites. What works then is what works then. Which is to say, you’d better be able to adapt on the fly, otherwise your skin is on the line. This means becoming proficient at not simply the Weaver and Isosceles stances, but a host of others, not to mention positions.

Learn How To Run Your Defensive Pistol:

Certainly, it’s a tall order to say you’ll master every possible contortion you might need to make in a practical handgun shot. There are only so many minutes your range time. But putting effort in getting out of your comfort zone – breaking shots sitting, kneeling, from the ground – goes a long way to acclimating you to dynamic handgun marksmanship. With time you will become skillful enough with each that, if need be, you’ll perform if circumstances call for it.
