I’ve got a deceptively simple vision drill for you today that will help you with both-eyes-open shooting:

You can do this drill at home leading up to your time at the range or at the range as a warm-up.Once you’re able to switch back and forth easily when you’re looking at your finger, start stretching it out until you can do the drill at any distance.

If you want to do the tactical version of the drill, simply paint the cylinder black 🙂

If you want a range-bag-friendly tube that’s crush resistent, use a short section of PVC.

Why’s this important?

  1. In an extreme stress event, it’s incredibly unlikely that you’ll be able to close your non-dominant eye.  If you haven’t trained your brain to aim with both eyes open, this is going to be a problem.
  2. When you close one eye, the other eye partially closes too…and that means you can’t see as well out of the eye you have open.
  3. In a 360 degree environment, you don’t want to turn off half of your visual threat detection.
