    A fellow shooter swears by the Sight Blinder for his supposed improvement in his shooting. Anyone use one? Do they work? Your opinions are appreciated.

    INCREDIBLE!!! Everyone has an opinion on everything from what makes a good wife to the best beer or cat pee. Yet, no one has an opinion on a shotgun accessory? I must be on the wrong web site. Sorry for the intrusion.

    They can be an aid for some with cross sighting problems. I am only aware of one All American shooter who uses one, (Kay O.).

    "INCREDIBLE!!! Everyone has an opinion on everything from what makes a good wife to the best beer or cat pee. Yet, no one has an opinion on a shotgun accessory?"

    What is the problem you post a question and wait 2 Hr. and 38 minute for an answer and then you are upset because you didn't get your answer fast enough on a not so popular item not to mention the fact that I am not sure which type of Blinders you are talking about.

    Seems to me you asked for opinions Many people can't give you an answer to because they have no need for the item. Maybe you would have appreciated my opinion. I could have given it right after you started the thread of course I know nothing about the Sight Blinders at least not the ones that go on the gun. If this is the one you are asking about I do however know a bit about the Sight Blinders that I put on my glasses.

    Would you like me to tell you what I know about those? I think before you get pissed off and start blaming everyone for you in ability to let everyone know just what you are referring to. You should learn a little patients.

    They are easy to use and can be moved without making a sticky mess.
    For me they did not work and I went back to just closing one eye.

    I have them on all of my target guns that I use and YES they do work (well, for me anyway).

    It is the first thing to try if you are having a problem cross-firing.
    I use one at trap and it works for me but, it doesn't solve my problem on high house skeet. I have not figured out why.

    Kay, Debbie (she says she cannot hit anything without it), Harlan, and Myself are the ones that come to mind as using them but there might be more.

    My opinion is that damned near all shooters cross-fire occasionally and if the blade would help then it would be worth while for everyone to have.

    It will not cure anything else.

    Mine is screwed into the side of my rib- that way it will not get knocked off.
    It is just a plain piece of flat metal. Any one that works metal can make one
    Meadows Industries makes one that sticks on with double sided tape-- that is what is on Tron's gun

    Notwithstanding ivanhoe's lack of a sense of humor and an apparent inability to spell, he is correct. I should have clarified and narrowed the subject matter; it was potentially confusing. In any event, I thank you all for your opinions. If I didn't value them, I would not have sought them. A very happy New Year to all.
