I decided to go with 2 eyes open all the time for one very simple reason: One less function to control in a critical situation. There are so many things going on in one's brain, so much critical input, during an event in which one's life is in danger, that I don't want to have to close an eye to get off a shot. I always shoot with 2 eyes open.

That's true for my shotgun shooting, too.

Yes - both eyes open is the ideal BUT some of us are right handed w left eye dominant and I have to close the dominant eye to get a single sighting plane. I shoot 22/25 which is just above middle of the road for my club.

Some stations, in skeet, I can shoot w both eyes open but I am not as consistent so when beer or bragging rights is on the line, I either close one eye or use one of those dots for my glasses.

Imam right handed with a right eye dominance situation. I find that it is a lot easier for me to acquire the sight and target with both eyes open.
