How to Stand When Firing a Pistol

Some of our Law Shield members who are new to guns may not know exactly how to set up their feet and hands in standard pistol-shooting stances, so Top Shot Champion Chris Cheng demonstrates for beginners the Isosceles (Triangle) and Weaver stances.

He notes that comfort is key when taking an effective shooting stance, and neither stance is “better” than the other. You have to go to the range and try both to find what you prefer, or to train in both stances.

Cheng is also the author of a new book, “Shoot to Win: Tips, Tactics and Techniques to Help You Shoot Like a Pro.”
