Combination of the two
Neither of the two/Self-created Stance
I'm not sure

I voted other, but I don't use any kind of stance at all, since I am not standing in one place while shooting. In fact, I am moving before my first shot and do not stop moving.
I don't have flat feet and I have all things being relative for my age excellent physical conditioning and physicality, thanks to training and effort as well.
But still with that I too like you will if the situation allows, which to date have all been training simulated...and knock wood continue that way until the day I die restfully in my sleep of old age, crouch low and I have been known to crouch down as though doing a squat (I did this Thursday during an IDPA Classifier at Stage 3.5) all the while being able to safely and most importantly functionally handle my firearm thanks to the MI method.
Try handling a firearm in a Weaver or Chapman style whilst in a crouched position. Difficult even for those who can crouch, and get back up on their own.
Shoot better with weaver!

I am right-eye dominant, and left-handed. The weaver stance just works for me.
