    Hey folks! I've been roaming around her for a couple of months and its time to say hi!. This site is nice and I am enjoying my time here as a left eye dominate shooter who just happens to be right handed. Yeah I do confuse easily so be gentle. I am always trying to learn more and be ready since now I realize that at 53 I'm not the bad bubblegum I use to be and I have 4 daughters and a wife to look out for. Cheers from just south of Eugene! Mike

    I bet you tilt your pistol just slightly to the left, it does work for us!

    I am left eye dominate and right handed, and do the opposite. I can do either, but prefer lefty pistol and right hand/eye with long guns.

    I am left eye dominate, carry left side. While teaching I go right-hand as we all know that is the majority of people. Right hand shooting I use the McMillan tilt which works perfect for rifles too.

    My dad is left-eye dominate while being a righty, but he never could shoot worth a poop. So cheer up, you're not the only freak of nature out there!

    ;) :D

    Wow, this is really something; I'm also left eye dominant, and right handed. Hanford? Something in the water? YOU be the judge....:D

    It's good to know that I am not alone. Karen with the McMillan tilt I was actually shown that by Bill the man. He was a good friend of my girl friends step-father he was a heck of a guy I was in San Diego when he was shot by accident. He could make anyone a better shot just his way. Stomper there hasn't been any inbreeding in my family in a good 200 years ;) thanks to all the abnormals out there!!

    Maybe this way is best, being left eye dominate doesn't hurt my golf game at all. Perhaps Stomper you have the inbreeding? :rolleyes:

    No, you're confusing that with "receding hairline". ;)

    I have a friend who shoots handguns right handed, and uses his left eye, must work for him, he won the national collegiate conventional pistol (bullseye) championship at Camp Perry back in the 1980's........
