The Low Ready position is only low, it’s not ready.

My buddy KevinC of Misfires and Lights Strikes postulates the above.

Being ‘old-school’, I was skeptical.  I’ve carried and shot for too many years from The Book of Col. Cooper (low ready, up into Weaver) to be easily convinced.

You should go to the link above and watch the accompanying short video.  My only caveat is I still prefer Weaver over Isosceles, but I do see valid reasons for ‘High Ready’.  This doesn’t mean there are not sometimes reasons to use ‘Low’, or even ‘Sul’!

However, just like the adjustment I made from tap, rack, bang to tap, rack, assess, pistolcraft is continuing to evolve.

Now if these young whippersnappers would just carry a caliber beginning with 4.  Or a shotgun.

  1. I think the important thing is to have a gun. But yeah, it should start with a .4… or larger. Heh.

  2. I made a response to his entry, but for me SUL is the best alternative… Less muzzling, still defensible.
