Biography

American law enforcement official who served as a Los Angeles County Deputy Sheriff. He was the developer of the Weaver stance, a popular shooting stance for firing handguns.

The Weaver stance was developed by Weaver in the late 1950s to compete in Jeff Cooper's "Leatherslap" matches, which Weaver won in 1959. The stance, which incorporates a two-handed grip, isometric tension to reduce muzzle flip, and aimed fire using the weapon's sights, was adopted in 1982 as the official shooting style of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Weaver married Joy Moniot on 30 August 1952 in Glendale, Los Angeles. He died on 7 April 2009 at age 80 in Carson City, Nevada.
