I realized something recently. It is actually because of the length of my winchester sxp and the marlin xt. I think I have a left eye dominance situation. The shot gun never seemed to feel correct when sighted in the target with my right eye and the scope on my XT also never felt correct. With shorter barrel rifles, it felt okay but when I point lefty, it does feel a bit more comfortable and correct. I have to get out to the range to test out my theory. Any other right handed people have that issue?
