I shoot crosseyed dominant ever since I sustained an injury to my right eye. I have to close my right eye now & tilt the sights to line up with left eye.Well, luckily, I’m now out of that zinc cased ammo.
The targets did have a backer behind it, however it was shot up pretty good.
I’m left eye dominant and trying to learn myself to shoot right handed.
That is a better description of how I shoot now also.I’ve tried sighting with both eyes open and it just doesn’t work for me. It takes me too long to dial in my target between shots, and my accuracy doesn’t improve any either. The one thing that really helped me was shifting my whole grip to the left where the webbing of my hand is centered directly under the beaver tail. It felt awkward at first but after I got used to it I did notice that my groupings are a little tighter.
I missed that in the pic. My thumbs are as you described they should be when I shoot. I was focusing on how he was lining his pistol up to his eye. Looking at it again I also don’t tilt it as much as guy in pic. Also my stance is not like that.His thumbs are wrong in the first stance, always right thumb over left thumb (right hand shooter)

SixG17s, if you see something I could correct. Please let me know. Thanks!
I shot weaver when I was right hand, right eye dominant. Before my injury to my right eye. So I guess I shoot weaver, my head tilted a little, then sights tilted to meet my head tilt, lol!!Very Weaveresque. I started Weaver then went Isosceles a number of years ago. My shooting and control improved immensely.
Isosceles is the more accurate stance, my eye injury, & now having to shoot cross eye dominant with right eye shut. It just doesn’t work for me. I also like that weaver stance is very close to MA fighting stance.Very Weaveresque. I started Weaver then went Isosceles a number of years ago. My shooting and control improved immensely.
I will look it up now. Is that the arms in tight pistol turned to the side stance?
I actually went through a CAR class with Paul Castle instructing.
Thank you for the strait up critique & corrections!! Also your dead on with me shooting to the right. My first shot is always almost a little to the right.Lucian, from the bottom up. Stance: your left foot is way too far forward twisting your whole body. I would expect your shots to be mostly to the right doing that. Use a boxers stance that allows you move forward, aft, left or right with minimum effort. So square off to a target and move your left foot about one foot forward (right handers). Stand up a bit straighter. Lock your arms out fully, then relax a bit. You don't need a death grip on the gun, just enough to resist a slight sideways push. Most people grip the life out of the gun and start shaking. Get your web of your right hand as high as you can on the frame. Use your first knuckle to pull the trigger. Make sure your right thumb is above your left thumb. Since you are left eye dominant, tilt your head to the right, and roll your gun to the left (little bit of homie style). Then, don't breathe and squeeze, grip it and rip it. From the low ready, flash sight picture on center mass, and jerk the trigger without moving the gun. Start at 3 yards. Best to practice with a shot timer and a standard USPSA/IDPA scoring target so you can measure improvement. Try all that stuff and post up pics of your groups.
