100% southpaw here!
I'm gonna learn, as I'm left eye dominant, but right handed.
I'll figure it out.
Any shooters have the same situation as me?
I'm the same as you!
I'm left eye dominant but normally right handed. We've gone shooting quite a few times since we figured this out and I've mainly used my left hand. I think it has helped me.
I'm left-handed, and barely left-eye dominant. All the eye dominance tests say I'm lefty-eyed, but I usually shoot with my right eye at least partially shut-down, so there is only one set of sights and one target from which to choose. I am surprised by the number of shooters who are cross-dominant, and didn't even know the condition existed until I started shooting with a large group of people on a regular basis.
For a long time I couldn't figure out why Jenny couldn't hit the paper with my Sig P226 at even 20 feet. Then I read about cross-dominance on a forum somewhere and had her try it. Sure enough, left eye, right hand. Had her try shooting left/left and she outshoots me now
"How many lefties do we have here?"
Lefties are evil, Demonic minions of Satan. I thought everybody knew this; what are they teaching kids these days.
Makes it harder for the heavenly, right-handed criminal types to snatch weapons.
It sure has helped me, I'm getting better groups - I just need to send my weapon to H&K and get the controls flipped.
I'm 100%, can't do anything with my right hand.
I call myself a lefty, but i think i'm kind of ambi. I can a lot of things with either hand.
My baby Mama is an evil lefty.. Crossing my fingers my baby is not!
Those are leftists. 8)
Handgun - Left.
Rifle - Right
Nearly ambi with firearms.
My left eye sees much better than my right, but I'm right hand dominant.
Surprised that there is somebody else like me.
All lefty here
I am left handed, and slightly clumsy with my right. I bat and golf right-handed, but throw and bowl with my left. I shoot left-handed, but at age fifty seven finally discovered that I am right eye dominant, and need to learn to shoot all over again!
Why are so many firearm manufacturers so stupid as to exclude ambidextrous safeties on their gun designs?...........................elsullo :huh:
+1 for ambi here. I write, shoot, and use a fork left handed but do almost everything else right-handed. :thumbup:
Same here. I'm right/right, but my uncorrected left eye is a heck of alot better than my right, so I tend to shoot that way.
So in short we are all all screwed up?
I shoot rifles left handed and pistols right. Should probally learn to shoot pistols left and I might actually hit something. I am righthanded (probally a product of left being bad and having it beaten out of me in public school system) but strongly left eyed.
