    I am right handed. I can't close my left eye and leave the right open. I can close the right and leave the left open. For this reason, when shooting rifles with iron sights, I generally get better accuracy shooting lefty. Anyone else have this retarded problem? Makes me want to get a fucking eye patch :rofl:

    Thats how my wife is.. She was taught to shoot right-handed because that's what she is. But she shoots as well with the left.

    I'm cross dominant too. I didn't realize it the first couple of times I shot a handgun. Since figuring it out, made life a lot easier.

    Normally I do, or shoot lefty. Shooting with a scope I shoot with both eyes open.

    Practice bro. I'm right handed / left eye dominant and while my vision is "clearer" through my left eye, I have trained my right eye and have full control over each.
