My understanding is the opposite. You tend to face your threat and go to an Isocoles.

Yes true that you face the enemy, but you thrust your one offensive hand in his direction and let the other remain free, at least at first. I could be wrong, I have never shot at anyone before.

That train of thought shows muscle memory. If you train properly, you develop muscle memory. Once that muscle memory has developed, nothing can corrupt it.

I learned to shoot a rifle early on in life. Later, I was studying Kenpo and shooting a lot of skeet. This developed a particular stance that my body instinctively fell back upon, as a long arm shooting and a weak side forward martial arts stance are so similar. As such, I developed a stance that puts my body at roughly a 45º angle to the target, with my arms bent at a little over a 90º angle.

That posture allows me to quickly clear leather and find my front sight with pistols and readily bring them to defensive (hidden) postures if necessary. It also allows me to quickly bring long arms from a 'ready arms' position to a muzzle on target position.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Best method it to shoot often and find a position that works best for you. It might be a prescribed method, somethig close to it or something different that works for you so you can hit center mass with the highest result. Even with all the possible advice if the time comes it's going to rereaction so shoot often.
