Closing one eye

    Recommended Posts

    Hi Folks,

    After some advice please, I shoot left handed and have a left master eye. I have shot for close on forty years and have always shot with both eyes open however recently I have started to close my right eye just before I take the shot. Not sure why I am doing this? any ideas would be gratefully received.

    Thank you

    Matt

    Thank you for your reply

    No eye problems that I am aware off

    I first noticed about a month ago that I was closing my eye and I have done it several times since.

    Is it affecting your scores?

    Im right handed/left master eye and shoot off right shoulder, 

    I close left eye just before pulling the trigger,

    I have always done it and am comfortable doing it

    Only shooting game at the moment and I am shooting ok,

    I have swopped guns a couple of times recently including using my sons O/U, I normally use a 20 bore S/S on game.  have done this before and never noticed a problem

    don't worry somewhere around 40ish your eyes change if its working for you carry on and enjoy   my eyes are less than 4% different as the day goes on and I get tired my left eye takes over or if not well the left eye can take over and cant work out why I missed considering everything looks right for a clay target kill blanking the left eye/closing brings me back on target
