Why did you ask this? I'm right handed and left eye dominant. The first time I shot my 30-06 I tried to shoot with my left eye and quickly had a cut on my brow. It didn't take much to learn to shoot with my right eye after that. And just a note for the OP. Be sure to go shoot with someone very knowledgeable with rifles. I bought a Remington 700 a few years ago that's been my hunting rifle. I thought I was an ok shot, but when sighting it in this season I couldn't hit a pie plate at 200 yards- a real confidence killer, and I decided I wouldn't take a shot beyond 100 yards which can be a real limit up here. I know a guy through work who's an Army sniper and a few weeks ago my wife and FIL ran into him at the range and he sighted in our M4 for her that she took hunting. She decided she wants something bigger than a .223 but not the 30-06 (which she shoots fine BTW) so today he took us out to let her try his 22-250, 243 and 308. We'd set up some bowling pins at 200 yards and she hit one on the 3rd try with the 308. He then told me to try and I nailed it dead center on the first shot. After that he took a look at my rifle and said the scope mount needed tightening and that the barrel needed to be floated which he volunteered to do. Long story, but point being a used or even good gun may not be in shooting shape when you get it. Find someone like my friend who can take a look at it for you.
