Thread: Cross Dominance and PMO

    Cross Dominance and PMO

    Does the PMO absolutely have to be viewed by the dominant eye?

    If a shooter can acquire a proper threat focused sight picture with the gun in the dominant hand and optic in front of the non-dominant eye, is there any reason to change?

    It shouldnít matter if youíre shooting with both eyes open and target focus.

    Based on my very recent experience with a dominant eye issue(lens slipped), I'd say not really...

    No, not from what I've seen.

    Iíve got limited experience, but what little Iíve been able to mess around with, Iíd say no. Right handed and left eye dominant. Iím able to put the dot in front of my right eye and get hits where I want while keeping both eyes open.

    The PMO is a godsend for cross eye dominant shooters, and I have seen enormous performance gains for a number of cross eyed folks.
    Likes pretty much everything in every caliber.

    No, but why would you want to learn a completely different index/stance for red dot vs irons?

    I am cross dominant and shoot right handed left eyed for all handguns.

    That's interesting. I'm a right-handed left eye dominant shooter who put irons behind me a couple of years ago. It never occurred to me that I could put the dot in front of my right eye and get results. It seems to work; is there a good argument that can be made for investing the effort required to make the switch?

    Good friend, now a two letter classification CO shooter made the switch when he started. Said it took about two weeks.

    Thanks, sounds like it's worth exploring.
