I'm right handed, but I can shoot with either. When I shoot left, I aim with my left eye, when I shoot right I shoot with my dominant eye (right). When I eat, I keep the knife in my right but I eat with my left fork... I don't switch the fork back and forth.
When I shoot with a gun in each hand, I use a different eye for each gun. I shoot rifles ambidextriously. The same with paintball guns (to cut down on my target size).
I'm right handed, but shoot guns and archery left handed...it just feels more natural. Aparently I used to be ambidextrous, but broke myself of in early on because everyone else in my elementary school class was right handed...I thought it was wierd, I guess.
I haven't tried shooting anything right handed...but would like to see if I'm any good at it. As far as those gun-video games are concerned, I can switch around from left to right...so I'm not sure how that will translate over to the real deal, but it's worth a shot.
Right handed, left eye dominant which allows me to fire pistols well, but rifles not so well, until I started firing left handed. The only rifle I fire on a frequent basis is the M16A2 (I am in the Guard) and just came back from the range fully qualified but not expert. The last time I q'd on the M9, I scored expert. Thanks for asking
Right handed, left eyed. I shoot my camera left eyed too, but when I was a kid on the farm I would shoot the rifle right eyed, now I'm more comfortable using the left eye due to shooting with the camera.
switching the mag release was my first modification ever. I was so proud of myself.
left eye is frustraiting for photography because cameras are ergonomically set up for right-eyed folks. moving the camera those 2 inches to the left means that your right eye is now blocked by the back of your hand and your nose is pushing up against the back of the camera.
