    Permit holders have demonstrated themselves to be more law-abiding and less likely to "go off" than the general public. I've published the stats on this site innumerable times.
    Sure it does, especially if you're a centrist.

    Made him back up to 25 and further. Agian, line up the sight and target with both eyes open. Focus is on the sight. He will see 2 targets. This has to do with ocular deviation. We got him to change his focus to a imaginary point 1/2 to 3/4 of the way to the target....a fairly crisp sight and one target.

    This technique can be used at any distance. It is fast and effective with practice.

    had to put a piece of tape on his left lens so as not to see two targets or gun barrels

    He didn't have eyelids? He couldn't close his left eye while leaving his right eye relaxed?

    you never want to close an eye-it causes strain on the other eye

    ever shoot an ISU small bore rifle or a IAU or WCSA "field crossbow"

    just about every one of those weapons has a blinder on the sight that blocks the non dominant eye for that reason

    plus in ISU Skeet the target is not released when you call for it-its on a 0-3 second delay and we use our non dominant eye to pick up movement (if you are a RH shooter) out of the high house

    Out around 20-25 yards you will see TWO targets. It has to do with ocular deviation. You gotta change your focus to a imaginary point 1/2 to 3/4 of the way to the target.

    You will have a fairly crisp sight and one target. Some folks will have to close an eye at these distances.

    The cue I use to change focus point is if I see 2 targets.

    I'd recommend dry fire until you learn to do it right. You have to put the work in if you want to be good

    I guess the part about being a USPSA GM would suggest i already know how to shoot pretty well

    that and being Triple A across the board in Skeet?
