Cephus. I have seen a guy with the same problem. He will shoot righty, but he moves his head all the way over the stock to use his left eye. And I thought me swinging a golf club looked goofy. I guess if he gets the job done...there is no prob. :thumbsup: That is a lefthanded thumbs up by the way.

yep that makes three of us......right handed but left eye dominate, i've become very good at snap shooting left handed, but when i'm shooting the rifle and I need to make a lomg shot, i'll switch the gun to my right sholder, i'm just much more steady with it in my right.....it's funny to see peoples faces when I switch shoulder and start plugging away..... :mrgreen:

Lefty all the way! Shoot, write, throw, play hockey all left handed. Luckly for me my left eye is the dominant one. Must be pretty tough shooting with the wrong eye.

:salude:
Is it september the 8th yet???

The majority of the worlds population are right handed and throughout history left handed people were considered handicaped and use of their left hand was discouraged. Some even suggested that left handed people were possesed by the devil.
Build memories, take a kid out doors and teach them about nature by interacting with it, hunting and fishing.

Learn from the past, don't dwell on it.

It is thought that 1 out of 10 people are left handed. The reason the left handed people were looked down apon, was because it is/was believed evil lurks to the left. (like liberal democrats :mrgreen: ) So I guess some of it is true. :getdown:

One thing the true southpaws in here will agree on is; Just because you do ONE thing (write,eat, shoot etc) lefthanded. And you do everything else righthanded. You can not call yourself lefthanded. I know you might want to join the club, and I don't blame you. You are not allowed in.

Basically a LEFTY but am old enough to be of a generation where they still tried to curb the tendency. Fairly ambidextrous now, not really by choice, just that there were very few "expensive" LEFTY products available when I began to learn. Left eye dominant but shoot pretty well as a righty. Write lefty, golf, throw and kick as a righty. Most everything else is done equally by whichever hand gets ahold of it first.
