I am rt. handed, left eye dominant.........do everything rt. handed with no problems. But, I shot all my handguns left eye open, rt. closed.

TN Larry, do some research or consult your doctor, it is possible to retrain his rt. eye to become the dominant eye, he is young and will probably adapt quickly to it.

at 5 years old he should just be enjoying the experience
let him adapt on his own with gentle guidance or he may be reluctant to participate
i am left handed and when i started to school the teacher thought that being left handed was a sign of being evil
and i was really tramatized (for a six year old) to not be able to use my left hand because i simply could not write with my right hand

I really like that idea of the grease smudge over the dominant lens Chaney. Might just go that route now.

As a teenager, I discovered I was left-eye dominant, AFTER I had become proficient learning to shoot everything right-handed. It was quite a learning curve going to shooting left-handed, but now, with exception to a handgun, believe was wise to have made the switch. I still shoot handguns right-handed, but am aiming with my left eye.

The most awkward part for me was learning to shoot a bow left-handed. Learning to nock those arrows with the wrong hand!

I am right hand, left eye dominant. I shoot rifles left hand, handguns right hand but with my left eye and my bow in my right hand.

Please do not try to FORCE him to use his right eye. If he is truly left eye dominant then that is his BEST EYE. Think about this. Try to force YOURSELF to shoot left hand with a patch over your right eye. Watch your scores drop. You will not be using your best eye which for YOU is your right eye.

Let him shoot how nature made him. He will soon be out shooting you one day.
