I prefer weaver and have always used it when I’m at the range, but I feel like if I was actually in self defense I’d probably favor isosceles, since I’m a right handed shooter.
The point being that if you're not wearing a vest, all of your torso is unprotected, and the front is a much bigger target.Im not in the line of duty, I’m just speaking hypothetically. Even so, you’re exposing an area of the torso that isn’t completely covered with body armor, but it really depends on how you’re facing the threat.

I'm surprised nobody has brought this up.
SMG's. Submachine guns. Take a very short, buttstock equipped pistol caliber machine gun, and you will have something that is basically shot with a Weaver stance whether you like it or not. That's why the MP5 felt so natural to me when I trained with it.
Isn’t that kinda like saying Weaver doesn’t work well with a long shotgun? LOL.
Usually the Weaver and Isoceles debate is centered around pistols.
But yeah... a “machine pistol” category in-between rapid pew-pew thing, is as likely to confuse the topic, as much as trying to lie flat in a ditch when firing. LOL.
Teacup and saucer grip
Yeah, haven't seen cup and saucer advocated in a few decades.
But don't diss the 1911!
Many decades ago is when I first learned to shoot, and back then I learned cup & saucer. Haven't used it for years, though. Works okay with something like a .22 or .25, but not for anything with some oomph.
