binocular vision

Isn't the ideal to have both eyes open when shooting?

Bamaboy is cross eye dominant, so was his grandad. We never got my Dad figured out 'till late in life........he missed a bunch of game.

Much like PetaW, I caught bamaboy squinting down the barrel of a toy gun with his "off" eye at about age 6. We swithched shoulders right then and now he shoots off his left shoulder with both eyes open. (pretty darn well I might add).

With a handgun, he shoots right handed, but when he presents the pistol, it is skewed slightly to his left, as he brings the gun into alignment with his dominanant (left) eye.

Learning from a young age, running the rifle from his "off" shoulder is not a big deal. I would not want to do that as an adult.
