Get yourself a Daisy BB gun and put a target up in your home with an old pillow as the buffer.

When you get groups with both eyes open (15 ft or so) then you can apply it to your handgun. May sound far fetched, but it works.
Stop messin' with it and get a 1911.

One eye open. I am Left eye dominant shooting right handed.

I've heard it all before too. Put a dot on your glasses. Start shooting left handed, etc. I'm stubborn and I won't do any of that. I have no problem hitting my targets so I'm not changing now.
