    I am trying to shoot doubles with one eye. I flinch when i shoot with both eyes open. Any ideal. With both eyes opened i could spot shooted the first target and shot scores 90-96, but still flinch at 2 or 3. now with the one eye i am lost. any ideal.

    Wait a minute. You shoot 90 to 96 percent, and two or three of those misses come from flinches. So now you are going to try with just one eye. What? OPEN YOUR EYES! Jon

    Both eyes cost me 2-3 birds per 100 in all 3 events. Im tired of it. Would like to shoot 97- 100.

    Scotch tape your lens ("magic dot"). Takes one eye out of the aiming process but leaves you with depth of field.

    I dont' believe its what you think. If you had eye problems re dominance of the wrong eye, you wouldn't be shooting the high scores you have. you would be shooting much lower scores. Flinching is a complicated thing. Flinching is a brain fart where the brain refuses to accept the target and interrupts the trigger pull. But eye dominance is such a disaster that you just couldn't have those scores unless your eyes were good.

    What possibly was the problem with two eyes was the fact that it sounds as though you were holding a high gun on the first target and trying to "trap the target". This type of shot execution tends to cause that type of response when bird is slightly off course, slow pull, loose sight of bird coming up, just freak out for whatever reason, etc. Try lower hold point and continue to use both eyes.

    It will be much easier making the move to the second target with a gun in motion versus starting a still gun to it.
