I'm the same way. It still feel weird holding the long gun righty but I've learned to live with it. I was taught to write right handed so you think that I'd be used to doing things righty, but it seems that by instinct, I grab and hold pretty much everything left handed (the right hand - hehe)

How does that affect your pistol shooting? Do you have to close your right eye when you shoot?

I worked with a guy who couldn't figure out why he couldn't shoot worth a damn until an instructor told him he was closing the wrong eye. I had a state archery champ tell me once that even though the sights may be lined up and you've got a good sight picture that the mind fools you into thinking you're on target when you're cross eye dominant.

Same here (left handed, right eye dominant), shoot pistol and long gun very accurately lefty w/ left eye, but draw and sight righty for archery.

i myself, am right handed, but left eye dominant....
i , however, noticed when i got into shooting long guns i felt more comfortable with left hand firing, but with a pistol, i feel much more comfortable with right hand firing.......;g

I'm left-handed right-eyed, I shoot rifles righthanded and I shoot pistols lefthanded right-eyed, this is how I naturally started shooting(25 years ago, not changing now). I never notice or thought about it until someone brought it to my attention a few years ago.
I usually shoot with both eyes open and don't have any focus problems. I don't have any vision prolems so I must just be very righ-eye dominant.
