Funny you posted this - just recently changed from a modified Weaver to the more popular modern Isosceles stance. IMHO, found the forward drive with the Weaver felt more stable while firing. In fact, it's so new that I find my shoulders wanting to angle (instead of staying square) resorting to old habits. Old dog trying to learn new tricks. ;)

I shot weaver most of my life. Through work we are taught isosceles. So that is what I shoot now. It makes sense because the modern body armor protects the front and not the sides, I guess.

Very few people actually shoot in one or the other; most shoot somewhere in between the two. If you haven't been trained and drilled to shoot in a particular stance with an instructor constantly correcting you, and I mean more than the average weekend class, your stance becomes whatever you're comfortable in. Your foot moves a little forward or back or your shoulders are turned a bit more or less. There are endless little varieties of "in between".

Excuse me but I find the picture highly offensive. This is a Glock forum and that weapon used is obviously NOT a Glock. Let's get it together!

This is me. I normally shoot to the extreme left, standing sideways to the target when I'm shooting a pistol because it reduces exposure to critical mass. I keep the knees slightly bent, but specifics other than that? They probably vary. I have not been formally trained.

Oh that's modified, you can see a casing bounced off my head in the first photo and hit me square between the eyes. Need to work on my grip. I also forgot to give my buddy props in the last photo. He was calling out distance and direction to threats while I was providing covering fire.

I first started shooting Pistols we used th Isosceles Stance then we went to the Weaver and then the Modified Weaver which I spent Most of my Formal Training and Teaching. Now most are teaching the modified Isosceles which I am working with and it seems more natural than the Weaver or the Modified Weaver but at times I revert back to the Modified Weaver.
