    I am left handed and right eye dominant. I have chosen to shoot with one eye closed instead of trying to learn to shoot everything right handed. It's up to you and what you think you'll be doing in shooting sports. If you're shooting stationary targets having one eye closed isn't a big deal. When you start shooting moving targets or have to transition quickly from target to target is when having an eye closed will hinder you a little. That being said I shoot sporting clays and do a little competitive shooting and do just fine with one eye closed, but i'm sure i'd be better if I had my full field of view.

    Are there any famous historical one-eyed crack shots for inspiration?
    I have the same vision condition. My left eye has , with advancing age, become my dominant peeper.
    A hand injury on my left mitt, has made my fingers pretty stiff . So the index finger motion actually pushes the trigger in reverse . (Getting better handgun accuracy) Blessing in disquise? This kinda' shoved me into being ambidextrous.

    More than 50 years ago, I started shooting with my non-dominant eye, I did great until I reached 50 years of age, I had to switch to my left eye with iron sighted rifles. I'm better than I was, now that I am using a good eye. :/

    Exactly. I shoot a shotgun right handed; mainly using my left eye, down the left side of the barrel. I'm shooting with both eyes actually, but the left automatically takes over.
