Stick to shotguns, trying to figure that out gave me a headache. Good luck partner, I'm just being a smartazz. I am interested in what is said.

And if they sold a fiberoptic system to move the optic's eyepiece to your eye, instead of you moving your eye to the eyepiece, it wouldn't matter at all. Why they don't yet, i have no idea.

I am the same way only shoot lefty and right eye dominant, I have always shot lefty since playing with toy guns as a kid, I always closed my right eye, a few years ago I made the conscious effort to use both eyes while shooting at all times and I found I was hitting moving targets with far more consistency, now it is natural to keep both eyes open for me. Many guys will say you should switch to shooting the side of the dominant eye but I never did and I can still shoot well enough to suit me. I found out I was cross eye dominant when I was 14 and went to get a bow at the archery shop, so they told me it was a good idea to use a right handed bow, I did and it was a little weird at first but now I'm used to it, I say if you are used to shooting and able to shoot well the way you are doing it, I wouldn't change, for someone new who hasn't had years of practice and developed skills, I'd say go to the side of the dominant eye.

There is not a sexier machine than the B-17 . Just to sit at the stick and make airplane noises would make me die a happy man

There is not many animals that agree with a 7mm rem mag , and when its a gas system , it make for a sweet , hot round . Major hearing protection required , specially with a boss hanging off the end .
I played sniper this afternoon in the barn after bleaching the whole house and decks , Got out the Safari to shoot my 4th round ever out of it and needless to say the 20-30lb pest needed no follow up shot . Just wish I could get to it to see the damage . Stupid black labs are worthless .
Also broke the pull rope on the power washer POS! After I had sprayed the bleach , go figure , why would my luck be any different ?

At least it wasn't an electric model; you would've blacked out the county frying yourself while cursing the dog barking at you.
