Re: help

[QUOTE=kiwi3006;239176]I am right handed but left eye dominant. I get around this by closing my left eye when I shoot, this is with a rifle or shotgun. The left eye dominance is only a problem if BOTH eyes are open.
I know closing one eye is not recommended when using a shotgun, but it does help.
Some of the competition shooters will wear glasses with a cover over the eye they need to close, I think is to stop muscle fatigue when shooting for a long time.

Hope this helps,

Kiwi is right!!!!

This is more common than you think and can be solved in several ways.

The simple thing to do is close the left eye.

A lot of target shooters have this malady and solve it buy training the right
eye by shooting lots of rounds with a blinder over the left eye. there are
shooting glasses that have a flip up blinder on them allowing the shooter
to use both eyes for normal function and then its fliped down for shooting.

If you are right handed I would recomend shooting right handed because of
natural position and trigger control will tend to be better.some people can
master this easer than others.

you can even try an eye patch when hunting and just before the shot cover
the eye if you have trouble keeping it closed.

Just a recomendation
