Just the opinion of a guy who wants to be here to parctice my stance.

I agree with all you said except the part about "stance goes out the window". It is a true statement if
the shooter has not trained until stance becomes a conditioned response.
If you do something the same way every
in a given situation, you will do exactly that in the same situation under stress.
One pet peeve I use as an example often is a shooter looking at his/her weapon during reload during training. There is no doubt that person will be looking at their weapon during reload in a fight with no eyes on the threat and lose valuable time searching for a threat that moved 3 seconds ago.
Another example is remaining standing during reload during training. It's another conditioned response. No doubt the person will not assume a knealing position fully behind cover with that dry weapon........ The list goes on....but it's the small things that seperate a proficient fighter from another guy that bought a gun....
Proper stances is something that if conditioned properly can give you an advantage...consistency per circumstance is key to conditioning.
