I just turn the gun sideways and shoot like a gangbanger. Haha. Just kidding.

Pi$$ off! I'll have you run around the yard and I'll shoot at you and we'll see if my aim sucks then.

Shoot with whatever is comfortable and work from there

I teach shooting with both eyes open.

Closing or squinting one eye requires more muscles to tighten in the face than both eyes open.

The muscle tightening gets tiresome for extended shooting.

Best way to shoot? Fast and hard.

I prefer both eyes open. I've found while dry firing w/ BEO I'm faster. W/ a RDS BEO is best, period. Handgun? Personal preference? I think so.

i am cross dominant (right hand left eye) and i was wondering if you have any tips on how to best accomplish this. I plan on trying this on all platforms (pistol, red dot, scope, irons)

Concentrate on your sight picture and trigger squeeze. Stick to these two basics and shoot, shoot, shoot.

When you get your groups tightened up and consistant, your shooting style will have evolved.

I always aim with and fire with both eyes open right eye down the sight left eye on the target using this technique I can pretty much call my shots

I practice with both eyes open and usually shoot just like when I practice. However, if I have an untimed target shoot and want to explode the bullseye, I try the dominant eye method.
