Here is how you use the low ready position with a handgun. The low ready position can be used both before and after you point into a target. Your arms are extended. You main a firm grip with both hands on the firearm. Your shooting finger goes straight, and the gun comes down to a 45-degree angle, or more. The low ready position is used for both safety and visibility. The low ready position allows you to see more broadly, both up and down and left and right and keeps the gun in a safe direction. You can easily use the low ready position with the Isosceles or the Weaver stances. From the low ready position, you can easily pop back up and engage the original target or new targets as they appear. In comparison to the compressed ready is a fraction of a second slower when engaging targets. However, with the low ready, the gun is always pointed in a safe direction.
