I use both eyes, although some days I do have trouble and need to close my left eye for a few seconds. Once I get glasses or contacts that fit correctly, I won't have that problem.

I'll second that. I start off with both then slowly squeeze my left almost closed.

I shoot with both eyes open. When I was in the Marine Corps I used to range shoot with a patch over my weaker eye but still kept it open (pretty useless in a hunting situation).

I suppose I'm a bit odd. I shoot rifles and pistols with one eye open, my bow with both eyes open, and a shotgun with both eyes open as well.
