It seems we have an out of proportion group of left handed shooter here. Iím right handed but left eye dominant so i shoot a rifle left handed.

In the words of Oxner ďIíll go firstĒ

Left

Right handed but up until a few weeks ago when I had an internal defibrillator put in on the left side it really did not matter which shoulder I shot from. As a kid I had learned to shoot right handed and finally trained myself to shoot right handed then later left handed even though I am left eye dominate.

Kept up with it a few years dove hunting and shells per limit were within 3 from either shoulder. I do shoot mostly right handed as it is more natural shouldering a gun on the right side

Right for me.

My wife is an odd ball. She is left eye dominant. Writes left handed but does every thing else like throwing a ball etc. like a right handed person. She refuses to try shooting left handed and it pisses me off.

For me I never understood how significant it was until I shouldered a rifle left handed. Yes it was awkward but my brain immediately settled into the scenario like it never had before. Within a few minutes I was shooting better than I ever had in my life. That was at least 15 years after I found out I was left eye dominant playing little league. Coach switched me to batting left handed. I was near 100% that way but refused to embrace it and may have even been ashamed as a child.

Left eye dominant, but right handed. Can shoot right handed pistol and rifle, but have to close my left eye. To make things worse I have an astigmatism in my right eye. Red dot sights have helped.

I am very right handed ( and right eye dominant,) but can shoot left handed. My wife shoots right handed, but is left eye dominant.

Our girls are both right handed, but left eye dominant. We are teaching them to shoot left handed. Since they switched from shooting right handed ( once we figured out their eye dominance,) their hit percentage went WAY up.

Easy test for eye dominance without the person being tested having to think much to effect the outcome. Stand a little ways from them adn have them point their finger at your nose, you will be looking down their finger at the dominate eye. There are some that do not necessarly have a strong dominate eye while others the dominate eye is so much so they cannot close their dominate eye without closing both eyes.

I'm right handed, but shoot lefty. Actually, I do most things that involve aiming, with my left hand. I draw a bow, cast a fishing rod, and throw a castnet with my left hand.
