I am right handed/left eyed. If I am shooting rifle or pistol, I usually just close my left eye. Shotgunning (in my case, skeet shooting) is a different problem. Then, using both eyes for depth perception on a moving target is important. I have been told to learn to shoot lefty, but I'm too old to change that now. I put a small piece of scotch tape on my left shooting glasses lens just at the correct location so that when my gun is mounted, it causes the left sight plane to be blocked out and all you see is the right site plane. This way you can track your target up until when you take your shot. I often bird hunt with tape on my glasses. This would also work for "off hand" rifle shooting. I don't shoot enough pistol to know if this works for that.I have the same problem,and solved it with an offset red dot scope on both my 1911A1 and 30-06 I wish you good luck Ted

I am likewise - for rifle shooting, close left eye - since the sights are close to your eye, dominance is not important. For pistol shooting, two things: Learn to shoot with both eyes open - it's hard at first, but once you learn, you'll never look back. Key thing to remember is that you'll see two targets at first, but your 'brain' will tell you which one is right - if your not sure at first, close your right eye and the target that's left is the right one. It becomes second nature soon and your shooting will get much better. tht second thing to help this is your stance - i hold strong arm right hand with left support and then turn/tilt my head so that my left eye is more in line with the sights - this helps your brain pick the right target much quicker. I used to shoot right eye for pistol (can only close my left) and after learning to shoot both eyes open i got much better.

try this: stand in front of a mirror with both eyes open and stare at your pupil size - now close one eye and you'll see your pupil dilate. this is to take in more light since you just blocked off 1/2 your light source. a dilated pupil uses more cones than rods (or vice-versa?) which means that you don't see as clearly. Two eye shooting will allow (1) better lighting, clearer shooting, and (2) more awareness of your background/surroundigns.
