I had a similar problen in 1999 as I was sometimes seeing double and I wound up with diabetic eye the left eye would not move in the same direction as the right and it took 3 months to clear up using the right amounts of insulin and rest. Get your eyes checked out by an eye specialist when you get to that age.

BUT, was at the range today, with my glasses and even with the glasses and one eye closed, there's an optical illusion that happens at micro levels, but the bead is distorted and can be off to the side of the clay target. I may just go back to my sweet, old gun, pretty as she is, and paint..... They used to make removable bow paint, but I don't see it anymore.....


You DON'T need a camo gun to kill ducks,never have never will. Notice the Robertsons have gone back to Walnut &blue A5's
Life is to short to hunt with a ugly gun.

I'm the OP (original poster)... So maybe the word "jump" was too dramatic to describe what's happening... It's a light interference thing, or perhaps a brain thing, single eye thing, but it's similar to what a mirage and heat waves do and it's definitely not due to dominant eye... It's one of those convergence of things which distort the image.

Focus on the target and then close your "off" eye. If the barrel is lined up with it, take the bead and toss in the rubbish bin. Go forth and slay with abandon! :yes:

The real solution has been to not put my eye right down on the rib. Now, I'm point-n-clickin' and breaking 22 and greater, each time. It just took me a while to get used to this new gun. The bead still moves, if I get down on it,, but that's no longer an issue. Thank you all for your insights and suggestions!
