I am legally blind in the right eye since birth, but am right handed.I shoot my hand guns right handed but my rife and shotgun on my left shoulder to get a good "sight" with my left eye.
My Father shot a pistol right handed and a shotgun left handed. He also shot pool left handed.
I'm the exact same, as are my sons.
Pistol carry right hand can shoot right or left, rifle lefty.
I also shoot pool lefty.
Born with a lazy right eye. Left eye dominate as a result. Shoot lefty with a long gun, both with a handgun but I prefer right handed. I shoot with both eyes open.
Right handed, left eye dominant. While I can shoot with both hands equally well, I'm more comfortable shooting as a lefty.
One should really shoot from their dominant eye side. A rifle scope will enable one to shoot with the opposite eye, but they you are learning various compensation techniques to mask the issue when using open sights. Learn to use the correct (eye) side for rifles and pistols. Technique is the same and reinforces good muscle memory habits.
Right handed but have shot both hand gun and rifle with both for most of my shooting life.
Yes Taurus really does suck. But in fairness they sure turned it around fast on warranty repair. Time will tell
I've seen people cause themselves all sorts of issues that they cover up or compensate. A little practice with proper fundamentals would make them more efficient and a better shot. But it's their time and their money. They can do what they want.
