Which eye to close when shooting the eye closer or further from the gun?

Interesting My brother had a accident at age 8 and had one eye ball removed and shoots a gun ... ones premise that TWO eyes are needed and one MUST CLOSE one Eye in the process of shooting a gun or bow is FALSE most literature indicates if you have two eyes one should ADOPT the practice of both eyes being open there is a SIMPLE means to find one "DOMINATE " eye if one has two eyes hold you hands out use your two first fingers an thumbs to form a triangle focus on an object on a wall ( clock calendar photo ) close one eye open then the other eye the DOMINATE eye is the one where the OBJECT stays within the triangle of your fingers

Further from the gun this allows the eye close to the gun to line up with the direction of the weapon.

If you are right handed...you typically use your RIGHT eye. A pistol is held straight out...both hands...both eyes equidistant. Rifles...the gun is held sideways...right eye...down the sights or scope.
Some people are left eye dominant...

you must figure out your dominate eye and use that one for aiming.
