Keeping both eyes open while shooting is sometimes easyer said than done for those of use we are oppestie eyed from our hands. Try shootin with your weak eye. ;-)

Yes its mainly used by military and police officers to keep both eyes open to increase your field of vision and prevent strain in your dominate

I always shot both eyes open, on everything. Didn't know any better.
But I'm super right eye dominate (have Brown's Syndrome on left).

so i went shooting this weekend and i blacked out the right side of my shooting glasses. Well it worked great, got some looks when i walked into the shooting range but whatever i dont care. But i just used black electrical tape and completley covered the right side. Anyway guys thanks for all the suggestions!! I will have to try some of the others as well!

Thanks!
Jeff

Glad it worked out for you! I'm always happy to hear success. If you want to avoid funny looks, you can try just spraying the inside of the lens with black spray paint, it won't look quite as funny.

Just remember- remove the parrot from the shoulder and the eye patch when leaving range!

Glad that worked for you

I think that i might spray paint the lens instead of using tape, make it look like i got it that way, maybe.

Thanks Guys!
Jeff
