my best stance?

The Upside Down Up-Chucker

i can hit anything-as long as its on a thursday and im carrying 2.48 in exact change.

no seriously when does form beat function? i imagine my best stance is "sh*t-sh*t-sh*t!! stop shooting at me and die!!"
If Sam Colt made men equal, then John Moses Browning made some men better than others.

Do not attend a gunfight with a handgun whose caliber does not start with a "4."

The one that's most stable to shoot from, while allowing you to move towards cover. You must practice it in order to benefit from it.

I chose "Other" as I will be mobile. Hard to hit a moving target. Throw a few rounds towards the BG, hope they hit, find a tactically superior firing point. Once in position, modify my stance to stabilize my aim, while minimizing my exposure. Resting against the trunk of a car while my heart is beating at maximum capacity will keep my sights from jumping all over (I hope).
