I would break this trait before it becomes a habit. She is left eye dominate, so I would switch her to shooting lefty if she doesn't kick too much. 

What type of shooting is she doing? Off a bench at all? I'd set her up lefty on a bench with a bag and support and let her see how advantageous it is. If she can't negotiate a rifle lefty, I'd opt to make her close her dominate left eye and shoot righty.

I shoot handguns right handed, aiming with my left eye. Haven't found any downside to it. Shot right/right for years, but have problems with my right eye now. If I could figure a way to shoot rifles that way, I'd try it.

Hi, Shenko. 

How do you shoot a pistola RH with left eye? You bury your chin into your right shoulder, close your right eye, and look down the slide/barrel with the left?

"How do you shoot a pistola RH with left eye?"
It's easy. Nothing awkward or uncomfortable. Once I decided to try it, it took about 3 sessions to get used to it.

Ever seen the movie "firebirds"   Nicholas Cage movie.... it'll teach you how to break the habit.... you'll need a pair of ladies undies, a periscope, and a jeep.  Bucky


Take her out shooting and carry an eye patch.  Work the muscle in her right eye and she'll develop the ability to use it if that's more comfortable for her to shoot.   Otherwise teach her to shoot on the wrong side the gun like Cheaptrick suggestedLoco
