That's a great philosophy if you're not cross dominant, doesn't work for toffee for me. All I'd see is the left hand side of the outer casing of the optic. This is something they made us all check in basic and obviously it wasn't a scientific cross section of the population, but at least 20% of people across the 2 flights had the issue.

Never actual thought of that. Good call.

I am left eye dominant but right handed. I find that it works quite well to have both eyes open. The eye dominance cancels out my view of the actual sight but the bright dot is still visible. The red dot sight needs to be quite close to my eye for this effect to work though.

am a lefty but right eye dominant, I keep my sight over the magwell with T1's and don't really have an issue shooting either lefty or righty with the side of the optic in the way.... I do tend to keep my rifles short though

Glad it works for some people because personally I will not see any of the dot at all if I don't close my left eye and it's a royal pain. Not only is it annoying and a tactical disadvantage but I constantly have to explain the fact to other people. But I guess there's different degrees of the imbalance, my eyes are clearly f***ed from spending a ridiculous number of hours avoiding the sun and playing C&C as a teenager.

My right eye is just completely screwed, iron sights do not work for me at all as they tend to blur into one black blob. My shooting scores as a cadet were very poor as the entire target would merge into one big black blob with the Sights :D I find looking through the sights on my AUG or Susat ok though closing my left eye which is odd as both use black lines/obelisk.

Try turning the brightness up on the red dot and then try it at different distances from your eye. I actually find it easier to use a red dot on my crap eye as that way the dark of the sight body is replaced by the image from my good eye but the bright dot stays superimposed on what my good eye sees. Using the same sight with my good eye, I see the sight body and my field of view is restricted slightly.

Thanks Happy, yes I did, tan, olive, foliage and dark brown krylon in the back garden with some leaves to use for masking, wanted to go for a rough and ready "just camo-ed on operations" look!

I've been using padded PALS/Warbelts for 4-5 years now so I'm going to try out the direct attachment method that's popular with a lot of civvie shooters in the states. This is the sort of transition setup, doesn't get threaded through the belt loops (use keepers instead) but doing away with any padding or modular attachment.

Worked fine in the game I tried it, though the 4 layers of webbing and 2 layers of plastic going through the holster was functional but forced the belt in to an awkward shape that was noticeably (when not actually in game) digging in after a while.

Have you got velcro inside that belt and on the keepers, Chris? Because most of my loadout options these days involve a harness and belt and the most annoying thing I find is when stuff shifts around.

The belt has a strip of loop along the inside and the MALICE on the mag pouches are kept in place with these which have corresponding hook:

The loops on the dump pouch also have some velcro. The keepers don't because I bought them in a rush and all I could find in this country were somewhat old-school ones that are more aimed at police use, but that wasn't an issue. Given the thickness and rigidity of the belt and how tightly I had it adjusted, it wasn't shifting around anywhere.

I'm right handed but left eye dominant also, sometimes I can shut my left eye while having a decent vision of iron sights but I preferably would like a red dot sight or holographic to help with this, although when I hold a pistol it's not a problem it's just rifles so I think practicing opening and closing left eye will help, I'm currently in the process of an application for the british army I need to sort that out before I get in (of I get in lol)

A friend recommended getting some Fabsil to waterproof my MTP shock and such things, he used it on a flectarn shirt and the water just bounced off so definitely need to get some I've seen their gold premium bottles for 13 quid so a Christmas present to myself along with a gen4 glock might be a good shout !
