Determining One or Two Eyed Shooter

There has been a lot of discussion over the years whether it's best to shoot with both eyes open or just one eye open. I think the answer as to what's best probably varies from individual to individual. Some people don't know whether they shoot with one eye or two eyes open. Here is an easy way to tell.

Mount your UNLOADED shotgun and point it at some object 30 to 40 yards away. Now, assuming you are right handed, slowly raise your right thumb vertically off the stock until it blocks your right eye from seeing the front bead. If the bead TOTALLY disappeared from view, then you are a one eyed shooter. If you could still see the bead with your left eye, then you are a two eyed shooter.

those who mount/shoot their gun/bow on the same side as their dominate eye can be two eyed shooters. Those who do this from the non-dominate eye side will find shooting accurately with both eyes open nearly impossible. Problem is most folk start shooting at a young age from the same side as they eat/write, this is just natural.......or dad is just too cheap to buy the kid a left handed action. Don't always work out for using the correct eye for sighting......most of us just live with it.
