The easiest way I know to check eye dominance is to hold your arm out and point at an object about 5m away, focusing on the object.

Close (or cover) the right eye; open it.
Close (or cover) the left eye: open it.

When you closed one of the eyes you might have noticed the finger appeared to move more than when you closed the other. That will be you master eye.

It's all pretty academic though; modern thinking is that providing the vision is OK you should try to shoot with the same eye as the hand you hold the pistol with. It causes far fewer problems than trying to shoot "cross-eyed".
