Do you shoot with one eye closed? Poll
 
When shooting do you close the non-dominant eye or keep both eyes open?

When shooting rifles I close the non dominate eye. With shotguns, which I don't shoot as often I'm a mix. Try to keep both open. Just ow getting into pistols so well see what developes.

pistols, shotguns and rifles with open sights, both eyes open. rifles with scopes, usually one eye open.

Who picked both eyes closed? :p

Both open unless using an optic with magnification or shooting long range.

Sorry, bad eyesight. blurry focus of non-aiming eye is

a distraction.

In a perfect world, I would never dissatisfy

anybody.

Completely close my non dominate eye. Doesn't matter what or how, optics, whatever.

I do the exact same thing every time. No need to be changing up fundamentals.

I have lazy eye. Even though I can't see well with my left eye, I lose my depth perception when I close it. I would have a hard time getting a scope on target with one eye closed.
