Well, I'm left-handed but right-eye dominant. In all of my 22+ years in the Army, they never picked up on that - it took a former Marine to figure that out - in about two minutes...Long after I retired...Can't say I've come up with a way to deal with that with rifles, but I've figured it out with pistols.
It's a lot harder to notice with pistols.

As for rifles...........maybe Liam would give you lessons?

I don't know if this is common, but although I shoot right handed at all times; I'm able to shoot with the left eye, head cocked, with my pistol; and force my right eye to focus with rifle.

I am able to do all of this with both eyes open.

It's very possible my left eye dominance is so minor, that it allows me to do so. I made a point of shooting with both eyes open once I started shooting more regularly and I believe it has paid off. I don't think I'd be able to keep a tight cheek weld with my left eye while shooting right handed on a rifle - irons or scope.

just for the shtf times, I practice shooting with both hands and eyes...you never know when you may lose an eye or a hand..so you may as well try it when you still have both..and see if you can, and if you cant , just keep trying...because even in good times accidents happen...and its a good challenge of skill..
