I have been trying to train to shoot with both eyes opened but it's very challenging for me. I would like to hear of any techniques you guys might use for the same issue (right handed-left eye dom).

    Thanks in advance.
    Here's an easy fix we teach our shotgunners so they can overcome eye dominance learning to shoot skeet.

    Take a piece of clear scotch tape and put it over the side of your dominant eye. Practice shooting with it on your glasses a lot until your eye dominance starts to shift, then you'll be able to work a little without it. Once you've overcome the dominance issue, simply stop using the tape...however, if it returns use the tape again.

    It helped my wife immensely since switching hands wasn't an option for her.

    Here is the thing. I used to shoot when I ws younger and always aimed with my right eye. Now I just started shooting again after 20 years and started with my right eye. Then I read about dominance and found out I was left eye dominant. So yesterday I tried using my left eye and shot just as well or maybe a little better. So, I guess I can practice with both or maybe just switch to right hand / left eye aiming.
