After 15 years of service, 3 combat deployments and several thousand rounds of every small arms weapons systems out there, NOW I'm finding out that I'm cross eye dominant! (Left Eye, Right Handed)... I had always shot right handed, right eye since shooting my first firearm in my teens, and stayed that way... Could never really shoot with both eyes open, but since the growth of advanced optics and CQB, it's an absolute necessity now. And the reason I couldn't wad because of cross eye dominance. Now, I'm learning to fire long guns with my weak arm (left), but keep shooting handguns with my right... Since identifying this issue, I can easily sight targets both eyes open, and acquire targets MUCH faster now. Maybe, with practice, I can eventually achieve Expert on the M4/16. Sharpshooter was the highest I ever got.
