WHY DO WE TEACH: WDWT: “Sul” Position | Police Marksman
Many handgun shooters use the “Sul” Position” as a “combat ready” position, both on the range and in the street. The Sul Position is characterized by the weapon hand being held close to the torso approximately at solar plexus level, muzzle down, with the support hand in various positions as needed or trained. The muzzle is intended to be directed just to the side of the lead leg to comply with safety rules of never allowing the muzzle to cover anything you are not willing to destroy or kill. It is also presently fashionable as seen in many magazines and training videos. So it makes sense to train cops to use the Sul Position as a safe combat ready position, right?

US Secret Service Hands Ready
Reason for this is that if there's a stabbing attempt or something similar you can quickly react and slap/push down the attacking arm quickly, without having to waste precious moments on raising your own arms and then changing the direction of movement of your hand (losing more time) and pushing theirs down. In most of other pictures, where the hands are at the general hip level, it's just a regular 'ready for action' stance.

Stances for the Full Contact Officer | Hendon Publishing
The manner in which law enforcement offi cers move during an attack is critical to their survival. However, before they can begin learning the proper movement to use during a physical confrontation, they must first understand, and get comfortable with, two basic stances: the Ready Stance and the Fighting Stance.

One Stance, Three Uses - Article - POLICE Magazine
As street cops we can break down three major areas in which we use some type of stance: field interviewing, fighting (obtaining control), and shooting. Though we pay a great deal of attention to the techniques that flow in and out from the stance, we pay very little attention to the stance itself. Many police academies and law enforcement agencies have a variation for each of the three areas described. My question is why?
