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.

If you are left eye dominant then you will have to learn to shoot left handed unfortunately.

It's ok - I shoot trap the same way, and I do great. It's not a problem.

You have to train yourself not to use your dominant eye.Wearing an eye patch or something to that effect while you go to the range is one method you may try to accomplish this.

Was left speaking sign language in a video called unpretty?

Hi: Left is fine. If you are dominantly comfortable being left-handed in sign language, then you can sign with your left dominant hand. Though even some people, who are dominantly left-handed in writing, are right-handed in signing.Whichever right- or left-handed you are, remember that you must be consistent with it. If you are right-handed, use your right hand as dominant. If left-handed, use your left hand as dominant. It is not interchangeable. If you are ambidextrous, you should choose one as your dominant hand and stay consistent with it.


Is being left handed dominant or ressesive?

The answer is recessive. It is recessive because recessive is negative and left-handed is unordinary. Dominate people write with their right hand. Remember that!

Why people are left-handed or right-handed?

Handedness is determined when you begin learning to write. Which ever hand you use is your dominant hand. EDIT Handedness is determined by which hand is dominant in all activities, not just writing. I'm what's called mixed-handed (cross dominance). I favour my right hand to write with, my left hand to eat with, my right to serve and left to bat in tennis and badminton. I tie knots left-handed, knit and sew right-handed. Ambidexterity is a rare form of mixed-handedness, where both hands are equally dominant in most activities. For general purposes, people say you are right-handed when you write with your right hand, but the strength of your handedness can vary. Though I write with my right hand, I am considered moderately left-handed. I'm not strong in either direction, but tend towards left. Look at the way you do activities like sports and eating and also DIY work. If your right hand is continually dominant, you are right-handed. If your left hand is dominant, you are left-handed. If both are equal, you are ambidextrous, and if neither are completely dominant, you are mixed-handed.


Is it true that right-handed people live longer than left-handed people?

Right-handed on people, on average, do live longer than Left-handed people. The primary reason for this being accidents with tools, which are predominantly designed for the right-handed, occurring more frequently with the left-hand dominant. This is especially true with power tools, or using tools in precarious positions, the top of a ladder being just one example.


What hand should be your bow hand if you are right eyed dominate?

Yes, it does make a difference. When an archer is right-eye dominant and shooting right-handed (or left-handed/left-eye), the arrow sits under (or almost under) the dominant, or "aiming", eye; the arrow is often used in aiming, especially in "instinctive" shooting, i.e., without the aid of sights. Being left-eye dominant while shooting right-handed (or right-eye/left-handed) moves the "aiming" eye to the extreme side of the arrow, affecting accuracy. The only way to counter-act the affect of using the "wrong" eye for aiming is to close the dominant eye and force the non-dominant eye to take over; this is not really an option when shooting "instinctively", because both eyes are needed for depth-perception.Cross-dominance (left-eye/right-hand or right-eye/left-hand) is not such a problem when using sights, but it can be.The best way to solve the problem is for the cross-dominant archer to re-train her/himself to shoot with the "wrong" hand. If right-handed, learn to shoot left-handed; if left-handed, learn to shoot right-handed. it may be awkward at first, but the rewards in increased accuracy are worth it.

Why do some people are left handed and right handed?

It's genetic. Same reason people become brown-eyed. It is not necessarily a genetic thing. No research has determined yet what causes some individuals to be left hande and what cause others to be right handed. If you are right or left handed, you can actually train yourself to be the other if you want by not using your dominant hand and using the other. It, of course, will be tough, but if you keep at, you can do it. After a ling enough period of time, you may not even feel right doing things with the hand that was previously dominant. It's all about stimulating the neurons in the non-dominant hand that wer not previously being used.


Why is the right hand mostly used?

Most people are probably mostly right handed because it is the the dominant gene.
