    Eye Dominance

    Found a very interesting test online. Thanks to archers out there
    The source can be found at the end of the test.



    The following method is one of the easiest ways to checking eye dominance for both adults and even very young children:

    Extend both hands forward of your body and place the hands together making a small triangle (approximately 1/2 to 3/4 inch per side) between your thumbs and the first knuckle.
    With both eyes open, look through the triangle and center something such as a doorknob or the bullseye of a target in the triangle.
    Close your left eye. If the object remains in view, you are right eye dominant. If your hands appear to move off the object and move to the left, then you are left eye dominant.
    To validate the first test, look through the triangle and center the object again with both eyes open.
    Close your right eye. If the object remains in view, you are left eye dominant. If your hands appear to move off the object and move to the right, then you are right eye dominant.
    One more alternative method is to assume the same position with your hands forming the triangle around the object and have both eyes open. Now, slowly bring your hands toward your face while continuing to look at the object with both eyes open. When your hands touch your face, the triangle opening should be in front of your dominant eye.

    no problem with that if you are hand gunner but could be a huge problem being a shotgunner

    AoA all,

    There is another simple test:

    Person who wants to check his/her eye dominance should try to take a
    photo through objective lens of a camera.(Without LCD display).

    He/She would immediately know which ''EYE'' the camera lens goes to.

    BTW,this is the most common thing among majority of human females
    around the world.

    Person with CROSS DOMINANCE would always try TO LEAN HIS/HER
    FACE TOWARDS GUNSTOCK OR BOW STRING TO GET PROPER
    ALIGNMENT WITH DOMINANT EYE.

    AoA brother 12-gauge,

    You enjoyed it,so I am happy.

    Yes, it has been observed at all shooting sports vanues that,women are more prone to
    CROSS EYE DOMINANCE ISSUE as compared to men.

    Sir jee,please post some review on STOEGER CONDOR,if you happen to come across any.

    Regards

    I Believe that the eye domination has more to do with target acquisition then accuracy as domination eye see the object first. Can any member shed some light.

    * Right hand shooter with left dominant eye.
    * left eye object acquired for pistol shooting
    * trained myself to use right eye for rifle and shotgun.

    @Mian
    with camera i use right eye although i am left eye dominant. I am sure that multiple methods will be the case to identify.

    AoA someone-001,

    Yes,you are right,cross eye dominance does not effect much while aiming with
    opposite dominant eye CLOSED.

    When you have enough experience in traning your right right eye as ''MASTER'' by closing
    left dominant one,so obviously you will do the same thing with camera also.


    The real test should be done with BOTH EYES OPEN.

    You must have noticed people start BRINGING the gun up with opposite eye closed
    as a first step.

    Hey Cap,
    Yup, liked the book. Not really a die hard fan though but the fact remains. The answer is 42.

    @Starfish: Yes same here, the book was good. The movie was a drag though.
    Apologies for being off-topic.
