Depends on the use. A SXS is a better upland hunting gun particularly in heavy brush. They traditionally have a bit shorter barrels and come up quicker for snap shots at game that are mostly running, or flying directly away from the hunter. I like how a SXS balances a lot better and since they don't have to be broken so far they are a little faster to reload.

O/U's traditionally have longer barrels and tend to be a little heavier. They are better for the clays games and longer range passing shots when hunting waterfowl.

If I'm using a double I like a SXS. It does some things you can't do with a repeater. And the things an O/U do well I feel a pump or automatic does even better.

One does not close one eye to aim; that's a rifle.
If you're closing an eye shooting any type of firearm you're doing it wrong. If you're having trouble with cross eye dominance learn to shoot from the other side.
