Does anyone shoot with both eyes open?
I shoot with one eye closed. I cannot shoot with both eyes open.
I have a habit of shooting with both open...don't know why. Probably why I pulled to the left Sunday.
i heard somewhere that that was the proper way. i just take my time and focus....i don't do too bad.Doll it might be your stance
both eyes open
Someone told me your not supposed to shoot with both open after a woman at the SAS shoot Sunday complimented my shooting and said she noticed I shoot with both open, then another person chimed in and said no you have to figure out your dominant eye blah blah blah.. Yes I do shoot in different stance sometimes left forward right back sometimes just stand with feet apart. Depends on my mood...
google the weaver stance or iscoscoles(?) stance and check them out.What type of gun are you shooting SAS? I'm asking incase you would hold differently than your self defense firearm while at the range.
You do need to know your dominant eye,even shooting with both eyes open,but none of this can get done just talking you have to practice alot and try not to pick up to many bad habits along the way.
Shooting with both eyes open is preferred, but when aiming at a target for a long time, like long range rifle or bullseye pistol shooting, sometimes you have to close the non-firing eye. When shooting quickly, like action pistol, CQB training, etc..., learn to go both eyes open. As for eye dominance, that's still up for debate. I fire with both hands and both eyes, and can keep both eyes open (I can also tie a piece of rebar into a bow with my tongue). To find your eye dominance, extend your arm in front of you with your thumb up with both eyes open so that your thumb appears to be under a light switch across the room. Close your left eye, then your right eye, noting which eye is open when your thumb appears to move away from the light switch. Whichever eye is open when the light switch appears to move is your non-dominant eye. Hope this wasn't confusing.
I have learned to shoot with both eyes open. You see more with both eyes open and pick up targets faster with both eyes open too.
that wasn't confusing at all.
I can't shoot with both eyes open just doesn't feel right.
is that under stress, you won't close an eye to aim.
Learning and practicing a shooting technique is not
comfortable, as shooting isn't a natural event.
