    How do you cope with cross-dominance? Meaning, I am right handed, but strongly left eye dominate. I do fine with rifle where I can close my left eye, but struggle with this when shooting handgun. I think this is holding me back from being more competitive in IDPA.

    If I may, this is where shooting with both eyes open is almost a must. If you’re cross dominant, just move the gun slightly (maybe not) to your dominant eye. Practice, practice, practice.

    My son is cross dominant and dealt with it in a unique way. Growing up, age 5 and on, he somehow sensed he was left eye dominant and learned to shoot Nerf pistols left handed. Now at 15 he shoots regular pistols left handed, and had learned to shoot them right handed. Talk about an advantage!

    In case you think it can’t be done, consider that Dave Sevigny and Brian Enos are both cross dominant. They shoot right handed with their left eyes dominant. Doesn’t seem to bother them!
