If you shoot with both eyes open, both eyes are seeing the target. Both eyes also see the barrel/bead.

Try this! Assume the right eye is the master eye. Raise your thumb up and with your head level, look at an object across the room. If you focus on the object, you will see two thumbs. The master eye thumb on the object, the off eye thumb to the right of the object. Now, tilt your head to the right a little bit. Notice that the right thumb gets down out of the way so the master eye (right) is the only one on the target. The left eye is still looking at the target, it's just away from the barrel/bead/target. With your head level, the left eye will want to get in the way (natural). Usually, left targets are not a problem, only right targets.

Try tilting your head when mounting and shooting. It takes very little getting used to and works much better than all the dots and bars, etc. You will be amazed at how much you can tilt your head and still center the target.

Don't thank me, thank Joe Ljutic. He worked with me and showed me how much the gun (even a high ribbed gun) can tilt and still center targets. Of course, Joe could center targets with a broom stick (RIP).
