That might be correct. It depends on what he meant by "I get double vision". Those of us who have no dominant eye or incomplete dominance (and there are a lot of us) see two equally-strong images of the barrel when we try to use both eyes, focussing on the target rather than the barrel. I simply cannot ignore one of the barrels and judge lead by the other.wwb said:If you're getting "double vision" as you stated, the odds are you're focusing on the bead.....
MrBen got lost in cyberspace, and the only way I could get back on this forum was to create a new e-mail address and log in under a new name.astomb said:What happened to Mr. Ben? Who is this Seamus guy?? :lol: Jim, I sure hope that you will be at the US Open at Claythorne. I want to meet you and buy you a beer.
I do suffer from that condition. All the standard tests tell me I am right eye dominant (I am right handed, BTW). But as soon as I put a rifle or shotgun to my shoulder, my left eye fights my right for focus.Seamus O'Caiside said:use one of the simple self-tests to figure out which eye is dominant. Unfortunately, those tests do not reveal incomplete dominance nor shifting dominance. But most people don't have one of those conditions, so maybe you won't.
I got used to it almost immediately.xl1200r said:This is a common practice,, I know many who do it and it seems to work for them. I think it's going to be an issue of getting used to it - can't see anybody being comfortable right off tha bat.
You don't seem to be getting the picture there, United Shot. With tape on the left lense (for right handed shooters), the shooter still sees the target with BOTH eyes. The tape simply blocks the view of the muzzle end of the gun with his LEFT eye. This way, the shooter sees the target with BOTH eyes but sees the muzzle (bead) with only the RIGHT eye. This prevents "cross sighting" on the target.United Shot said:Shoot with two eyes open , and look at the target , I have cross eye dominence and it dont make any differance if you focus on the target with both eyes open , dont do the tape over your glass lenses its only holding you back .
UNITED, Excellent point ! I also get cross dominance, I also see down the side of the o/u if I look at the gun. Alo when I close my left eye I see 100% gunfit. The key word here is "Look at the GUN" there are far too many people that think they have an eye problem. The real problem is looking at the gun not the clay.United Shot said:I see straight down the left hand side of my O/U if look at my gun , I close my left eye I see 100% gun fit .
So look and shoot at the target forget gun :!: :!: :!:
