    To each their own, but with 2 eyes I like to focus on the target. My mother is LEO and shoots cock eyed, I know quite a few people who are great shots who do, lefties and righties. Fundamentals only change slightly as you know have to create tunnel vision and focus. It is an often overlooked mistake to focus on the sights rather then the target.

    This used to be taught and is no longer taught. I'd have to agree with the reflexive shooting it does helps with your mental acuity of placement. If you want to shoot well practice, not necessarily the shooting but the motions. Snap caps and the fundamentals and drawing and create the mental muscle reflex memory pathway.

    You can also put a couple of layers of scotch tape on the non dominate lens of your shooting glasses. The type that will blur things slightly.
