    What is the preferred method? I assume two, but had to ask.

    Thanks,

    My arms aren't long enough to see the sights clearly anymore. LOL! I was always a one eyed rifle and pistol shooter and bow shooter. Shotgun, two eyed.

    cls- If you are using the front sight, one eyed shooting is essential. When shooting Bullseye, you never look at the target, only the front sight. Shotgun shooting is very different.

    cls two is the method that is taught by the experts for the same reason as trap eye dominance.

    Fred is right on. Only thing I would go further on is close range. As Fred stated 7 yards or less. For concealed carry you want to practice point shooting with two eyes. Point shooting is being taught again. You also use that second eye open to look for potential second threat or target. Texas Lar
