Dunno if I explained that well, but, you can figure it out, I hope.
I'm right handed.
Makes sense to me. I used to have my left eye closed, but when i started dealing with scopes, I found it to be more effort and strain to keep my left eye closed than to let it remain open. It actually becomes more of a metal thing, allow your brain to naturally reduce the info from your non-aiming eye to about 10% (or "off") and relax better. I can shoot at 30ft in my basement with the scope set on 9x with no issues as equally as 3x to 9x when aiming at any greater distance.
