My clay target guns have the Meadow Industries Vari-Brite-Site III on them. This is the one with the fiber optic rod and channel to block the off eye. My hunting guns have the Easy Hit fiber optic sight with the tube. With my Unsingle the tube sight does not work since I needed to raise the comb to get the POI that I wanted. It took a little time to get used to seeing the fiberoptic sight yet keeping the focus on the target.

Mike,
It is interesting that you had problems with the right to left targets. In my case I have a weak dominate right eye and shoot right handed, I see 2 barrels with both eyes opened focused on the target. I had a lot of lost left to right targets. I had an instructor stand behind me and he stated that the gun never reached the left to right target when I fired.

Mike,

Right to left targets are not a problem for me, the "correct" barrel touches the target first.

Do you see 2 barrels in your peripheral vision?

To me it seem like you are switching dominance and only see the "wrong" barrel on targets from the right.

Mike,

To me your problem seem more substantial since your off eye is taking over and you had to close it to shoot straight.

In my case it seems my subconscious mind was seeing the off barrel clear the right angling target and I would fire. The Vari-Brite-Site III has helped me a lot. Having a glowing red dot only on the "correct" barrel has eliminated the left to right angled target mystery misses. I also feel that it has helped me with bead checking. There is no wondering were the bead is...it is glowing right out there; focus on the target and move the glow bead to where the target is going.

Tomas,

Does not work for me. I see 4 thumbs. When I move my head a little to the right my right thumb ( the correct thumb) moves off the target.

I have had people mount my gun with the Vari-Brite-Site III and not see the glowing fiber optic rod. Their master eye is so dominate that all they saw was the side of the barrels. Thinking about that now I should have also ask them to try and focus on the front sight to see if they can see it then.
