Both eyes open, or one eye open?

I am "cross eye dominant"...

I shoot righty, but my left eye is dominant.

Thus far, I have always shot pistols with both eyes open.

Do you guys shoot with both eyes open or with only one eye open?

I don't know if it's a weird eye problem or common. But if I try to shoot with both eyes open I either see double images of my pistol or the target, depending which one I'm focusing on. I have to shoot with one eye closed. Anyone else have this problem?

It may be a matter of practice. Now that I'm awre of this, I seem to be getting a little better with both eyes open. But here's something wierd. with both eyes open and my left hand up in firing position, my left eye appears to be the dominent one. With the right hand, it's the right eye. Strange.
