    I just saw a documentary on Annie Oakley. Not much I didn’t know, but the thing that caught my eyes in all the photos and films was how totally open both her eyes were. I know I give an involuntary squint with my left eye. When I shoot rifle I even use a blind to help relax it. She was 100% open and focused with both eyes. I can’t prove focused, but some of the photos were very good. Both eyes looked bright and tracking. Anyway, just a thought.

    I still have the problem with blinking when shooting even though I don't when I dry fire. I remember reading years ago that Muhammad Ali was so good do to the fact he did int close his eyes when he was hit. So many photos you see of him when he is fighting is him getting hit, both eyes still open and him counter punching.
