Hi there everyone,

As odd as it sounds, was there a one eyed gun fighter in history? Doesn't need to be famous.

Any help will be appreciated.

Not that I know of but don't see why not. A lot of really good shots close one eye when sighting anyway, so depth perception isn't an issue. Professional and exhibition shooters train themselves to keep both eyes open, for better target acquisition, but for the Wild West type of gunfights (mostly sneak attacks), a fella could get by with one eye. The high-noon, middle-of-the street hipshooting gunfight so familiar from TV and movies never happened (well, maybe once or twice).


A female, one-eyed gunslinger, now that would be a character...
