I learned a very long time ago to fire any scope or scope like fixture with both eyes open. Its a bit difficult at first to learn to put the concentration on your shooting eye as soon as target is acquired, but it sure helps getting that target into the scope. Follow up shots if needed are easier too because after you blink (we all do), you locate the target quicker. I now use this method on all sights. Really helps when using on running game and open sights. For me, running game is squirrels and rabbits and other varmits.
No such thing as a stupid question. What is stupid is not asking it.
