Glad to hear of it, but I humbly recommend that the lady in the picture take a class and learn a proper shooting stance :p
…and the photographer to take a safety basics class in order to learn that those kind of shots are down right dangerous. I'll be ****** before I take that kind of picture. At least the lady's finger isn't on the trigger, from what I can tell.

Isn't that the Isolceles stance?
Yep. Looks like it to me.

If I were the photographer, I'd put the camera on a tripod and would set it for a timed shot. That way the lady can take her stance for the picture, and yes, her finger's off the trigger.

What I really thought was interesting in the article is how New Orleans residents are arming themselves at a record pace in order to defend themselves, including getting concealed carry permits.

Guess I'm a bladed stance guy. Looks like you could push her over.
Suarez article on it:

Yeah, I feel far more stable when I pivot my right leg back like I do when shooting a rifle. I am however far more accurate when I shoot a pistol from the weaver stance, even though it doesn't feel as natural or stable.
In a defensive situation I'd probably drop the leg back just because it's more instinctive for me & perhaps drop on that knee thus creating a shorter, thinner target for the other person. Either way I'm going to keep shooting until the bad guy is no longer a threat to me anyway.

As for the pic above. I can't tell what her stance is, but do give credit for proper trigger discipline. I can only hope the photographer had the brains to use a tripod & remote shutter so he could stand to the side.
