I don't shoot pistol without my Merit eyepiece anymore either.....but now that I have it I can see where a fellow who couldn't afford one could just poke a hole through the right lens of a pair of Lexan safety glasses and stick a ring binder reinforcement around it..... :mrgreen:

But seriously, you just can't beat having the proper gear and most of that seems to be German designed.....wait a minute....let's face it...shooting gear...especially shooting jackets....makes you look like a nerd and a dork.

Are there no gay Italian designers at all interested in shooting sports? We've got to drag Giorgio Armani out to the shooting range!!!!!...... :mrgreen:

I read that one reason for not closing the non-aiming eye is balance.
The non-aiming eye contributes to the bodies ability to balance.
When I shoot I now use something on the lens that does not cut off all the light. A small strip to block the vision of the target or a strip of celophane tape or similar. Thus the non-shooting eye cannot see the target, but it receives ambient light and can see the surrounding area.


@watertown
Don't hold too long. If I can't get the shot off within 6 seconds or so, I abort the shot and put the pistol/rifle down. Your body has a cycle where it reaches "minimum wobble," likely some place less than 6 seconds from settling down to fire. Any longer and your wobble gets worse and worse and worse. You need to try to shoot in that minimum wobble time. As I understand it, the problem is the muscles get tired and the body is using up the oxygen in the blood.

Thanks for the tips. I watched a science show on TV and a trained sniper was able to shoot between heartbeats, the ultimate body control.

I don't wear shooting glasses and never have. But I wear eyeglasses, and they're always on my face. So I guess after 45 years of shooting, that's about the only face protection I use.

Even as a hot-eyed handloader and cast bullet afficianado, I've never had an incident.

Thanks for putting up such a great thread. Low budget and works like a charm.

The target left is an average bench rest for the phantom and the right target is offhand standing 10m
