As a lot of you know, I'm pretty new to shooting, and just now getting into it. I use my right eye for everything up close (reading). After reading a lot of articles slanted towards beginning shooters, I saw some tricks for testing your eye dominance - and it looks like I'm left eye dominant, for just about everything, according to these "tricks."
My hand-dominance is confusing as heck. I've been shooting three times so far, and my main hand has been my right hand, with my left hand as support. That's just how I naturally picked it up. However, I write with my left hand, swing a gold club with my left hand, hold a hockey stick, baseball bat, etc. with my left hand... but I throw with my right hand. A funny one is ping-pong... I seriously don't know which hand I use. It's been a year or two since I've played, but I remember that for the first 4 or 5 years that I ever played ping-pong, I used one hand. I randomly switched one day after 4 or 5 years, and the hand I switched to was much better! How I didn't know this, is beyond me, but it's kind of funny.
So now, I'm wondering - since I naturally picked up the guns with my right hand, should I continue doing that, even though I'm left eye dominant? Or, since I'm SO new to everything, should I work on my left hand and work that up as my main shooting hand?
I'm thinking it might not be a bad idea to practice equally with both, but I'm torn. It worries me that I'd end up shooting maybe 8/10 with BOTH left and right hands if I try both... instead of 9/10 (or 10/10 if I'm lucky!) if I just "master" one hand. What are your thoughts? I can see where shooting with either hand would be useful, but I can also see where it might be better to be a "master" with one hand, rather than an "expert" with two.
Or, is this whole eye-dominance thing not really that big of a deal, and something I shouldn't worry about?
