Determine Your Dominant Eye

Using your dominant eye to aim a gun will usually make you a faster and more accurate shooter.

Q: What is the best way to determine your dominant eye for shooting?

A: Determining which eye is dominant is simple. This is one of several methods:

Extend both arms in front of your body and cup them together to form a small opening by crossing the thumbs and forefingers.  Choose a small object about 15-20 feet away from you. With both eyes open, focus on the object as you look through the small hole between your hands. While continuing to look at the object, pull both hands toward you until they touch your face. Close one eye and then the other. When you close one eye, the object will be stationary. When you close the other eye, the object should disappear from the hole or jump to one side. The opening between your hands should be positioned in front of your dominant eye.

Repeat the test few times just to make sure you identified your dominant eye. If you have a hard time identifying your dominant eye, do not fret. It is possible that both of your eyes are dominant. Also keep in mind that if you are right handed it doesn’t mean that your right eye will be the dominant one. Some people are cross-dominant.
