In this issue’s Shooting column (p. 36), Chris Batha addresses any number of possible solutions to the problem of visual cross-dominance—one of the most vexing and often-hard-to-cure problems associated with shooting moving objects with a shotgun. Cross-dominance is an affliction I have not been immune to—and one, in fact, that worsened after I turned 50.
