It’s no cross to bear

I notice on the cover of Australian & New Zealand Handgun 17 a picture of a lovely girl shooting a pistol left-handed and aiming it using her right eye. I was exactly the same when I started shooting 25 years ago and was told by numerous people I’d have to change. But I explained to my local range officer this was my natural way of aiming and have been shooting successfully this way ever since.
