The stance I naturally assume is the Weaver.

Jeff Cooper wrote that technically, only Jack Weaver shot the Weaver stance while the rest of us shot a form of Weaver, which is probably accurate, but I clicked "classic Weaver" anyway.

I used to shoot Iso, but by the second day of a class taught by a Gunsite instructor, I had converted.

I mostly shoot modified Weaver stance. It just seems more comfortable and natural for me.

I also have found in most case i find it more comfortable in a Modified Weaver Stance myself. I just feel more relaxed and I stand a bit to the side to present a slimmer target

We are all old school shooters it seems, I have seem Robbie Latham shoot many times and I was in awe. He uses the turret for the most part.He is so fast also, butalot younger too.

I practice all three, but my most instinctive is modified weaver, but after watching a video by Rob Pincus, I have conciously used classic weaver with the draw from low ready, and my shot placement and accuracy percentage has increased exponentially.

30 years ago in my youth, i shot from a Weaver stance.

after a 27 year hiatus I'm back into shooting handguns regularly again.
Now I don't think about it and just "do what comes natural" to me.

That would be the iso

I used the Iso stance when I shot IPSC matches. I competed for many years, until my knee gave out. Even though the Iso stance presents a bigger target to an opponent it gives me equal far left to far right gun travel without shifting my feet. That's why it worked for me when shooting multiple targets on an IPSC stage. I still use the Iso stance because it feels natural for me.

I haved used the Iso Stance but I have never had good results which is probably me more then the stance itself I work on reflex's. The Iso is good as you said on mutiple targets. I will have to give it more of a chance to see if i can get good results from it.

Jerry, I have my elbows bent when shooting the Iso stance. As a matter of fact, I don't even bend my knees.
