O.K., first things first.
The desired outcomes for a "stance" are
"Stance" is very multidimensional . . . the position of your "toes" is only one (minor) element in the system.
So, seri atem:
- "Stance" includes foot position, leg position, torso position, head position (to include neck and eye), arm position (to include shoulder roll, elbow position), and hand alignment.
- They are all connected to each other; a chnage in one affets the parameters of the other.
- There are tradeoffs among the three outcomes (the most comfortable may not be the most repeatable, etc).
Skipping the last few years of detailed conversation on this topic, what are your stance concerns/issues?
Are you getting tired quickly?
Are you not seeing your sights settle quickly and naturally?
Are you settling in a different downrange area every time?
What do *you* see as the desired platform (stance) for delivering the perfect shot?
O.K., simple answer:
- You want to be facing 75-90 degrees away from the sight line to the target
- You want your toe pads "shoulder length" apart
- You want your heels 1 foot length apart
- You want to lean forward with your legs
- You want to lean rearward with your torso
- You want your interior elbow facing 45 degrees from the vertical
- You want your head vertically aligned with the direction of the earths center
- You want your face horizontally aligned with the target face
[p.s. what you really want is STABILITY, COMFORT, and REPEATABILITY which will require you to experiment with several elements until you find what works for your body structure]
Good Luck and Happy Experimentation!
