This is an issue for the individual to work out for themselves. This isn't a kid or a first-time shooter and they don't need any advice they're not requesting.

I'm not the SWAT team leader, but if I was, I'd primarily be concerned with the end result. If this leader is requiring the use of the off-eye, follow their lead or get off the team. If it's just their advice, then it's ultimately up to shooter to work it out for themselves and deliver the result the team expects one way or another.

I am not a swat guy, but just wrapped up 20 years, and was an agency and academy firearms instructor for the last 10. We would have had him shoot a pistol with his right hand and use his dominant eye, and had him shoot the carbine and shotgun just as you described, using his left shoulder and dominant eye. That doesn’t mean it’s right, there’s more than one “way”, that’s just the way we would have done it.
