Lol, that's funny. What he meant was he left his none sighting eye picked up on movement (human, and other species, eye picks up things in this order 1st/ Movement, 2nd/ Contrast, 3rd/ Colour.......... meaning that he left his eye open and would alternate between what was seen through the scope and what was seen outside the scope. He has what I have, the ability to shut off one eye and allow most of the info from the eye you choose to look. The way you describe it is like he has a wandering eye, which would freak anyone out to see. Lol
Glad to see I posted an interesting topic/poll. Here are the results as I type this, and is very interesting (just wish I knew how was attached to what vote though.)
