    Righty...Left eye dominant here.........I have no problems.
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Right handed, left eye dominant here. Learned to shoot long guns and bows lefty when I was about 7 and am good enough to qualify "expert" (for what that's worth) with an M-16A2 for the USAF. I shoot a handgun right handed and left eyed though. It has never given me any problems. I leave both eyes open as well. I don't feel as comfortable or steady with the handgun in my left hand and it feels strrange to wear my holster on my left hip.

    Bring the Pistol to your eye not your eye to the Pistol. For Long Guns use the eye on your natural shooting side. We used to call point shooting the "Spray and Pray" Method.

    what is the difference between point shooting and instinctive shooting? I have heard both terms used when talking about defensive situation.

    I am also left eye dominant and right handed.

    cross dominant here also. I'll give a +1 on the point shooting idea, and also endorse the idea that you should become a proficient shooter with the gun in either hand.

    you want to know something funny... shooting left handed I sight with my right eye... That tells me that its the mind not the eye. I'm trying to train that habit away.

    .............and if your are blind in the dominant eye you have either been shot in the face or some other bad thing and you will naturally switch to your seeing eye out of necessity.

    Does anyone else shoot like this and does it cause you any issues?
    I shoot left handed and am right eye dominant. I can't shoot with both eyes open. Doesn't cause me any issues. When I am at the range, I am much more accurate when I close my left eye.

    I'll have to look into point shooting though because I can see where it would not work in a defensive situation
