    Both eyes during daylight. One at night.
    “For us hunting wasn’t a sport. It was a way to be intimate with nature, that intimacy providing us with wild unprocessed food free from pesticides and hormones and with the bonus of having been produced without the addition of great quantities of fossil fuel. . . . . . . . We lived close to the animals we ate. We knew their habits and that knowledge deepened our thanks to them and the land that made them.”

    Both eyes when shooting my AR15 with the Burris AR332. One eye closed with my long range and hunting rifles.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    You should be able to shoot most things with both eyes open, providing you sight with your dominant eye. If you are a cack hander, but right eye dominant, you would probably have to close your right eye, likewise a right hand shooter with left eye dominance will have to close his left eye.
    10MRT shooters do it 60 times, in two directions and at two speeds.

    both open in any situation

    all comes down to how strong youre dominant eye is or how well you have trained it

    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!
