I think the eye dominance situation is somewhat over-rated. Unless you have a significant vision ploblem you can learn to shoot with either eye. People with more equal dominance require blinders to ensure they looka t only one image. I was origianlly right eye dominant and the only way i could see comfortably down a rifle barrel was to shoot it right handed. I shoot pistol left handed, and one seasoned shooter (Les Decsi) pointed out that I would control the recovery after recoil a lot better if I used my left eye for aiming. He was completely correct. I learned pretty fast how to shoot very effectively with my left eye. Now I have astigmatism in my right eye, so I'm thinking of using my left eye for aiming.
