This might sound like a stupid question, but I am not a rifle guy. Im looking at getting an all around rifle or PCC and need some help with a scope. I am right handed but left eye dominant. Is there a scope that will allow me to shoot right handed or should I just shoot lefty. I have been practicing lefty but it still is nowhere near comfortable yet.

It really depends on what you'll be using the scope for, but I would look into parallax free models.
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.

I may be way off base on this as I don't have your problem, but as long as you close your left eye while looking through the scope, I don't think you'll have a problem. I know most people say to keep both eyes open while using a scope, but I've never been able to and it hasn't hindered my shooting ability. When looking through a scope, you're not actually lining up multiple objects at multiple distances like when using iron sights. Think of it like looking through a camera viewfinder. When you look through a viewfinder, do you get a picture of what you see or is it off center? I really don't think you'll have a problem as long as you don't keep your left eye open and have your brain try to merge the images.

I never thought about it like that. It makes good sense
