Starting over... What would you recommend?

I tore my rotator cuff in 2 places 2 years ago in my shooting arm and had to have the surgery plus rehab. 6 months after surgery, I shot a few rounds and it left me hurting for a few days so I talked to my doctor. He recommended leaving off all practicing for a full year and let me heal completely then work back into it. Well, it's March, the shoulder feels great and I've got a big itch to go workout and shake off a lot of rust.

I figure this is my chance to start over and practice without the bad habits like cross shooting.... I'm right handed but would aim out of my left eye.(Long story but I got my right eye fixed and it's as strong as the left eye now.)

Soooo.... what recommendations so you have for someone re-learning? My ego is out of the picture so I can go as basic as needed.

Hit me, I need it! I've got 2 new handguns and 3 rifles that need breaking in!

both eyes open is good to learn and it helps me alot. I can't even close one when shooting a scoped now unless i really try.
Are you planning to compete?
Just start plinking with a .22lr first, but make sure you use a good grip technique. You might want to consider a few days of training with someone like Cliff to get back to basics and move forward from there. Training is key. Dry fire practice will help tremendous as well. Practice Practice Practice.
What ever you do, Don't go grabbing some high-powered Gun and just firing off a few round. no no no.
Good Luck
