    I have long had an interest in dominance as I shoot a shootgun ie binocular vision but needing a dominant eye. Anecdotally I have found at three metres that there is a much higher rate of matched dominance than reported in the article in men and that women have a much greater rate of crossed dominance. I also find that left handed people are much less likely to be matched.
