Default Any ideas im right hand dominant but left eye dominant!

I love shooting right handed but I like keeping both my eyes open and I can't aim down the sights like that with a rifle like my ar and akm I only shot one rifle that I could aim down on my right side and it was a lee enfield witch I loved but it was my buddy's and he bought the last one I was thinking if I was to put a sight or something on my ar and just raised it so I can aim down on my right side but my only problem with that is I didn't want it to not be accurate and I did t want to spend all the money if It didn't work any ideas

Train yourself to be more right I dominant. It is not easy, and if you dont keep at it you will slip back to left I dominant. I too am right handed, left I dominant.

I'm the same way, with pistols it's much easier because I can use my left eye. When I use my right I'm usually off target a couple inches. Suggestions please!

On pistols, you just move your sight over to the other eye.

Interesting question, will be following this thread.

Yeah I'm good with pistols to I'm just fine with those cause I use my left eye but most rifles I can't use my left eye holding t on the right and less like there is a scope mounted on my ar carry handle and the only rifle I can aim down that I know of so far on my right side Is the lee enfield

Wear safety glasses, put frosted tape over the left eye's lenses. Learn how to shoot 'left handed'. (Before the 'Great .22lr Shortage of 2013’, I was working on shooting L handed, both rifle & pistol.)

I'm right side,left eye dominant as well. I've been told I'm a great shot with a handgun but not nearly with a rifle that's not scoped. Guess forcing myself to use my right eye on long guns is enough to throw me off.

I shoot clay pigeons with both eyes open,and with some fairly consistent success.
