    i have a new shooter who hangs on the back of the stock- after questioning him on head position, he stated that he needs to hang back, due to a blurry right eye and tries to line up his good left eye, he is shootig right handed! he said he cant shoot left handed , as it feels way too awkward!! i also slid the comb way to the right , to help him which didnt seem to make any effect in scores---what do i tell him ???

    I have the same problem. My right eye is my weak eye and I am now developing a cataract in it but I am right handed. I learned to shoot lefty. A few hundred
    shells and he'll get used to it. Bulge.

    My right eye has been getting blurry and on my yearly diabetic exam I found out that a catrcat has been developing. That is the symptom of a cataract,blurry eyes. As his friend you may want to suggest that he sees his eye doctor just to make sure that is not his problem. They are common after age 55. Bulge.
