I'm not cross eye dominant but at this stage of my life, my left eye works better to focus on the handgun sights. If I want to make a precise shot, I often use my left eye. Cross eye dominance is not really a problem when shooting handguns/rifles but a BIG problem for shotgunning.
FWIW I'm old school and learned to shoot with one eye closed and I'm sticking to that program.

My problem is that my focused vision is fading altogether in my left eye--I'm happy I can still see clearly with my right.

I was at the range earlier this spring and watched some homeland security police training and it was obvious one of the senior guys was testing the junior. The drill involved drawing and firing as quickly as possible but also as accurately as possible. Then--the shooter was required to cross-draw from his weak side and shoot with the other arm as primary hold/support--I assume this was in the event of getting wounded in the dominant side. The shooter did very well at close range--impressive.
