What is your most effective shooting stance for accuracy? Granted real-life situations vary your stance.

It's probably user specific. I generally use modified weaver or modern isosceles. If you are in a fighting stance when you draw your pistol you are likely to be shooting from a modified weaver, if you are flat footed and surprised when you draw you are likely to end up in the modern isosceles. That's why I practise both. I don't notice either as being more accurate for me.

Agreed with above, everyone is a bit different depending on your actual physical design. Thinner ppl tend to be more flexible and adapt to different stances a little better. Whereas thicker folks tend to have one stance that they favor more so because of limitations of movement.

During the academy I teach new recruits strong side toe should be even with weak side arch or inseam and feet slightly wider than shoulder length apart. But I impress upon them to practice from all different stances as well as kneeling and from on your back if you can shoot somewhere that allows it.
