    Eyes wide open.

    If the sun happens to be wrong, I might squint the other eye momentarily.

    Have tried to shoot with both eyes open. Never works for me.

    I shoot with my left eye closed, right eye open. Much better accuracy that way.

    Shooting with both eyes open, there is no telling where the bullet will be traveling.

    I learned to shoot with one eye closed, but next time at the range, I'll try with both eyes open. This would allow you to keep a better eye on your target, especially if it's moving. Have to give this a try.

    You will keep both eyes open if you're in a fight, and that is the case for rifle or pistol. So train with both eyes open too.

    You don't need to know
    Both eyes open for all CQB shooting, handgun or long gun.

    I have one eye farsighted and one nearsighted, poor depth perception. If I want accurate aimed fire, I close one eye. If I'm not using both front and rear sites or "point shooting" I have both eyes open. "Minute of BG" is very do-able out to 15-20yds point shooting or focusing on the front site. Beyond that, sites are necessary for reliable accuracy.
    One thing to remember about closing one eye is that you lose peripheral vision to that side. This could be a fatal error in a defensive situation.

    Cross dominant here also, if I try keep the right eye open, it messes me up. I am left eye dominant, shoot rifle and shotgun lefty but can shoot handgun with either hand.
