might as well contribute to the necropost.

Right hand right eye dominant, maybe 50%+ on the left side.
Used to be strickly right side but in CQB the need to shoot with the left side sometimes forces you to learn

I like to close both eyes and shoot with a guns in both ways using the gansta technique.

its not always effective, but after a few "clips" theres nobody left.

I'm a very strange shooter...

I'm right hand - left eye dominant since my left eye is stronger than my right. When using a rifle, I'll shoot with one eye closed. When shooting with a pistol, I typically shoot with both eyes open and aim with my LEFT eye but shoot right handed. That last part can change, depending on the situation I'm in but that's typically my ideal method. I can very easily switch to left handed with a rifle. When I'm maneuvering, I'll almost always shoot right handed because I can acquire a target much faster. However I find when I'm using a rifle without a pistol grip, I'm able to hold the rifle much more steady when trying to snipe or target shoot. This makes operating a bolt a lot harder, so for that reason alone I'll shoot right handed.

I'm firearm dependant.

With rifles I'm right hand dominated and I use my right eye through the iron sights and my left eye to view the area. Like many, if I have to time and can see a shot, I'll take my time and pin point it with just my right eye.

With pistols/small-arms, I'm still right hand dominated, but I aim with my left eye down the sights and keep my right eye open to maintain my field of vision.

Keeping one eye closed is classy? Lol, it's one thing to focus on other than the reticle, therefore it's not classy, it's a hindrance. Add in the fact you reduce situational, awareness by at least 50%........................ No wonder you serve appetizers in the respawn area all the time. Lol

I'm both right hand and right eye dominant. How I shoot depends on what sights I'm using. With iron sights and scopes, I tend to close my left eye. With a dot sight, I tend to shoot with both eyes open.
