DKA If using slugs with rifle sights, must aim, when using shotgun barrel and buckshot point.

Hunting Man well this old man is putting that birthday present leupold 3X9X40 on my new slug gun! It a riflemans model for muzzleloaders or shotguns. I need to see them up close and personal. I would like to hear how the left side training goes.

ronn should make it easier. I think you can get a 2 power red dot, not that you would need magnification on a slug gun.

Great Idea!!

DKA If your dad was right eye dominant, he now is left eye dominant, tell him to shoot with both eyes open and point his index finger at the intended target. With some practice, he will be shooting as good as ever. We teach this method in Hunter Safety Education, called point and shoot. Young people catch on quick, but older people take a while longer, but will make it.

buckslayer30/06 learning to shoot left handed shouldnt be to bad i used to do it before i knew my right eye was the dominant one and i still from time to time shoot lefty to give me a sort of challenge.
