No matter what one eye needs to be closed or covered. I have heard people say the same thing and it never worked for me or some of the people I taught.

I do shoot with both eyes open, I close the one I don't look through the sight with a bit, but it works very well.
It happens naturally for me, and I tend to relax better when I don't have to "force" one eyelid down..

Excellent advice. If you are busy tryin to keep your eye shut it will throw off concentration and will result in a bad shot. I never thought about it, I will have to pay attention to what I do next time I go out. I do know that both eyes are not open for me.

I don't do that either.
It takes a bit of practice, but I shoot much better with both eyes open..

Most people have a dominant eye (don't know if I translated that correctly from Dutch) If you're looking trough the sight with your dominant eye, you can keep both eyes open, if you're looking trough it with your non-dominant eye, you'll have to close the dominant one, or it will interfere.
It varies from person to person, do whatever works for you, as long as you keep at least one eye open...

If you want to know if you have a dominant eye, try this link:
