a little cheap and easy practice is to use your puter mouse left handed.
it develops some muscles and control useful to shooting with that hand.

Another trick on learning to shoot with the opposite hand and eye is to go to a batting cage and bat opposite. Now granted batting is using major muscle groups not fine but if you can start to get your body adjusted to using the other muscle groups then moving to fine motor skills is a tad easier for your mind to take. Remember most of us are older than 15 so we must retrain our mind as well as our muscles.

As children we learn our gross motor skills first and then move to fine. Some will adjust faster then others but if you continue to work on it you will see improvements. Lastly remember that this is just like a foreign language, you have to use it or you will loose it.

Take care Be safe Poacher.

And when you complete that go for right hand left eye etc.
Have done it with a hand gun and it is a bit strange to say the least.

I too am a righty with left eye dominant. I shoot best using my left eye (either hand), but also practice a little with my right eye and found changing hands is easier. Never tried it out with the rifle though. Gonna have to try that out.

In Karate classes in my late 20-s I had to learn how to use my left side.

In AF Security Forces, I had to learn to be at least semi-functional with a rifle with my wrong side because you can't ALL be on the r/h side of the patrol all the time.

In my IDPA shooting, I had to learn to be at least safely functional and tolerably accurate shooting a handgun wrong-handed, and sometimes (O.M.G.) wrong-one-handed (cops and nun's hit the floor, everyone else vertical probably takes bullets! LOL)

Remember when it comes to training, we preached to our officers fast is slow, slow is steady, steady is fast. Train like you shoot.
