Well I took the test and I am right eye dominant, but like the versatility of being able to shoot either way, it might help me when hunting in the future. The only draw back for me is when I shoot my 10/22 I don't want hot shells hitting me in the face so I am unsure if I will shoot it left handed. I am actually suprised that I was able to shoot lefty. Now my summer hunting isnt ruined.

If you are shooting heavy shotgun or muzzleloader with the opposite hand be careful. You may not be holding the gun as far from your eyebrow as you are with the other hand. You might jion the half moon club!

Lol it has already happened, not real bad, but had a small kiss with a scope, and it taught me to watch out.

Just Shoot

Like anything we do practice develops confidence. Start off with a good bench rest and get confortable. It will feel different at first but the more you shoot the better you will get. I shoot lefthanded but I taught myself to shoot righthanded and at first I could not hit anything but as I got used to the recoil from the other side I was able to narrow the gap. Now I feel very confident that I can make the shoot no matter which side the deer come from. Good Luck.
