    Just wonder which eye people shoot with and if they really know. For years I aimed with my right eye, then I did the test and I am left eye dominate. It straighten my shot and improved my sight picture, so just doing a little poll.

    I'm right handed and right eye dominate.

    My GF is right handed and left eye dominate. I think it may have something to do with, how the school "forced her" (back in the old days) to be right handed. She says that she has always had more power in her left hand vs her right. Anyway, she writes with her right hand because that is how she was taught in S. Korea.

    Right eye dominant and right handed. I shoot with both eyes open when I shoot at 7 yards and I don't try to form a perfect sight picture at that distance - just point the muzzle. When I shoot farther than 7 yards I close my left eye and work on a perfect sight picture - I also slow down a bit.

    Left handed, left eye dominant. I shoot right handed and right eye because that is how i was taught. I keep intending to practice left handed but old habits are the hardest to break.
