Have you ever noticed that when two people sit behind a desk on TV after 8pm, they can’t even seem to agree on anything, like whether or not Howard Stern has bad breath?
Top shooting instructors have the same issue, although I don’t think they spend much time discussing Howard’s oral hygiene. Far too often, they disagree with each other on basic shooting fundamental techniques. If you’ve been to more than one class or training event, you know the drill.
The Weaver stance is the only possible way you can hope to win a gun fight. All the best gunfighters know this, and Chuck Norris invented it
Millions of years of human fight response will position your body in a stance compatible with Isosceles so that shooting position is the only possible way to win a gun fight. Training your body to do otherwise is a waste of time and an insult to human instinct.
This is just one example. There are many others. Should you or shouldn’t you practice trigger reset? One eye open or both? Revolver or semi auto? I won’t even mention the 9mm vs. 45 debate. Oops, I just did.

The fact that big time instructors disagree with each other presents a real problem for mere mortals. Which opinion do we listen to? What do you do you when you learn a technique at Little Gun Tykes Academy, then when you take a class at Tactical Harmony Learning Center and Day Care, they teach you to do something the opposite way?
The way I answer the so called experts on which anything is best use this. Did I survive and complete my objective? If yes then the rest is a mute point. My stance , grip , one eye or two and any other criticism is not as omportant as consistancy. Practie a lot. If you aren’t achieving your goals try some of that criticism. Then practice some more. Most importantcpart is have fun and be safe.
