Yeah when I shoot a shotgun I'm pretty consistent buck I guess that's cause it's bird and buck most of time and I normally just point with the bead sight

My roommate had the same issue. Instead of attempting to train you eyes he decided to train his hands. All of a sudden we've got ourselves a south paw, he's worked at it over the years but he has got I'm done like he was lefty all along.

I've used the gkasses trick to train my eyes. I don't know if training with air shoft would be cheaper than 22lr, but I've done that as well to keep up on eye training.

I've always just shot long guns left handed. It's worked well for me for over 42 years.
I can also shoot right handed almost as good with long guns,but that took some practice.
Pistols,I shoot with either hand or eye.

Practice,Practice,Practice!!!

I have always been right handed and left eye dominant and never knew it was a problem! In fact it has never been for me I'm a good pistol shot and when it comes to long guns (all of mine are scoped )
it for me at least is a plus. I excel at the running deer shoots and have won a few locally, keeping both eyes open is a plus in that game.

might try getting an eye patch and wear it as much as possible doing day to day stuff. you might find that your dominance shifts by forcing it to happen on a daily basis for a while.

I have shot left eyed right handed with handguns for 40 years. Rifles are scoped and adjusted well to my bad eye or I have receiver sights and I shot right eye right hand but also practice left handed for that sometime shot where you just have to switch up. . I can't shoot right/ right with normal rear left sights.

Yeah I'm just going to shoot my rifles left handed with iron sights and with scopes right handed or maybe even scopes on the left I getting pretty good left handed went shooting today and I used a couple of my rifles and my friends scoped 30-06 and I did really good so I guess im just going to be a left handed shooter with rifles and right hand shooter with pistols lol
