I have a question regarding introducing children into shooting. For the last couple of years my six year old has been using a .22 handgun. As near as I could ascertain she was right eye dominant. I recently bought her a mini henry rifle. Upon mounting the gun right handed she then proceeded to cock her head over the gun to line the sights up using her left eye. (Now understand this child is soooo right handed that you could cut her left arm off and she wouldn't miss a beat)
Also a few months ago we were shooting bows in the back yard and I noticed that she was consistantly missing to the left of the target. I had her flip to lefty and lo and behold dead center.
In both of the above cases I had paid fairly close attention to which of her eyes's was dominant. Before July09 I would swear that she was right handed right eye. Last couple months it looks like her master eye has switched.
Have any of you fellows out there that have older kids or are instructor types that have helped train shooters from a young age on up run across this? If so is it something that will change as she get's older?
Thanks for your comments,
