    Default Both eyes open

    Its amazing since I started shooting this year with both eyes open I started shooting open rifle sights with both eyes open too. I had never been able to do this before. I caught myself doing it this morning while shooting a chipmunk off my truck tire with my old 10 pump daisy. No more nut hulls under the hood

    Once I realized that I am right eye dominant, I have been shooting with both eyes open ever since. MUCH better view - and perspective - of the target.

    I never realized how much effort it took to close one eye until I started shooting with both open. Your goal should be complete relaxation at full draw and it is amazing how much more relaxed you are with both eyes open.

    never really thought about it but I am more relaxed with both open. Once in awhile I do still have to blink me left eye to make sure I'm looking at my sights with the right eye.

    About two years ago I learned the same thing. 2 eyes open is a much better way. My accuracy went up and seeing the whole target is a better way.

    I usually start with my left eye closed just to make sure my mind is focused on my right eye sight picture, then I open the left eye.
