I shoot with both eyes open it took some practice but i think it helps in following the target.

I used to shoot with one eye but trained myself to shoot with both open, it helps you pick up your target and judge distance.

Always shot with 2 open, and it gives me a better view of everything around the target, especially when hunting.

Here is a warning to those who shoot with both eyes open-wait till you are over 40 and then you will have to shoot with one.

This happened to my hubby and then to a friend of ours. One season they both continually shot way right. This only happened in a hunting situation, neither one of them could make that mistake practicing! Once they discovered the problem closing one eye made all the difference in the world.

Just remember that your eyes get old too!!!!

I shoot with both eyes open but when it gets close to end of light I seem to use only one. It makes it easier to see the pin without getting it confused with the background.
