Cross Dominant Shooting
December 7th, 2007
Subject: Cross dominance
After reading your report, I wanted to comment and get your opinion. I am one of the remarkable 10% and am right handed with left eye dominance, but not by much. When shooting a rifle I can close my left
eye just enough to blur the vision and get a good sight picture with my right eye. However, when shooting a pistol, I will bring my gun up, focus on the sights and will usually be on target with my left eye, but
occasionally, I will notice that my right eye picks up the sights. It doesn’t seem to matter as far as shooting since I shoot where I aim, but would you recommend that I stick to one eye or the other, or continue to shoot with the eye that picks up the sights?
I really appreciate what you are doing for the second amendment and for gun enthusiasts everywhere. I hope to get down to your training center in 2008 as I have a certificate for a free course, by linking to your
site. What a fantastic offer that I wouldn’t think of passing up! My pleasure to put your links on my site also.
Again, thanks for all you do, and thanks for the gun training reports! Great information and I go back and re-read them frequently.
Just keep doing what you are doing. You may want to squint your non-dominant eye when shooting the pistol to avoid any confusion in the brain as to which eye should be picking up the sights.
