    Probably why he hit him in the arm and shoulder. Thank god he had good training.

    But even if you disagree with that... for shooting a pistol in a "self-defensive" situation cops are trained to shoot with both eyes open for the purpose of situational awareness. I.E. they don't "sight" but rather point the weapon on target. With long distances when ready to fire quick close of eye mere tenths of a second before firing and reopening of the eye to keep scanning. Reason for this is your closed eye takes time to adjust for the equal or greater time you had it closed. So if you are sighting for 2 mins, it'll take your non-dominate eye 2 mins or longer to adjust.
    Where'd you hear that? On TV?

    2 minutes?

    Where did you come up with that number?

    If this is a fact, this has been a week and a half of unnecessary involvement of FOUR POLICE DEPARTMENTS, the Missouri National Guard, various FIRE Departments, the stupid democrat governor of the State of Missouri, Obama, Holder and millions of dollars spent because of this thug, Michael Brown and all the usual suspects such as the NAACP, Sharpton, Jackson and the rest of those lying bastards. I hope your GD welfare payments are forfeited.

    How dare you. Pushing your common sense and personal responsibility on others. Others that have been held down for centuries by the evil white man.

    It's an example if you closed your eye for 2 mins. If you closed your eye for 1 sec, it would take about 1 sec it for that eye (and brain) to focus again. Go ahead and try it.

    I was taught to shoot handgun with both eyes open. But when I'm shooting through my scope, I always just use one eye. One shot, one kill! Oooo-rah!

    Austriaecon is suggesting that there's no way Wilson could have fired accurately with a busted eye.

    So its anecdotal to you right?

    This one i know for certain
    One eye open presents different issues. Tunnel vision, depth perception and so on which leads to issues in actually determining if one is justified in shooting.
