Default Eye Dominance

Whatadvice would you give to a beginner who is left-handed but right eye dominant? Learn to shoot right handed or just shoot left handed? Will accuracy suffer if you shoot w/ the opposite side of your dominant eye?

Shoot what feels comfortable. I shoot right handed but i am left eye dominate. I just close my left eye i can't seem to get the hang of it shooting with both eyes open.

Kamil did you have a hard time at first, I mean did your accuracy suffer?

im left handed but right eye dominant, i shoot right handed. but it depends how handy are you using your right hand. most left handers can use there right hand, but your eyes cant be fooled!
