    I just recently discovered that I'm left eye dominant and I'm right handed. Any suggestions for sighting, shooting, alignment etc. for rifle shooting.
    Thanks

    1, Try switching hands. 2. Use a bit of tape on left lens of shooting glasses. I know of no way that sights can be set to compensate for THAT much difference- you are basically looking ACROSS the rifle, not down it.

    You can get what is called a cripple stock. That moves the rifle to the other eye. It does this by have a slight curve in the stock. I have only read about them and never seen one other than a book and that book was 50 years old 20 years ago.
