    I am left handed but always shot right hand guns. Old habits. Got a left handed 1100 shotgun ( backwards cross bolt safety). Always put it on safe when I pull it up to shoot.

    I have one left handed bolt gun, Savage 300 Win Mag. All the rest of my rifles are lever action, and yeah they can be shot from either side. I have several 22 lrs, and only one, Marlin 795 is right handed.

    Guessed at an early age that shooting left handed was a better fit for me. I never tried bow hunting, swany do you have a picture of the ambidextrous bow?

    Right handed but left eye dominate here. I shoot a handgun right handed but with a rifle or shotgun it's ALWAYS left handed.

    My left handed battery consists of a Savage 110 -300 win mag , a 110 243, a 110 police sniper in 308 win, and a Browning A bolt in 30/06 and of course my 1895 ported guide gun in 45/70 and my Browning BAR with the Boss in 30/06 and a Savage 93 in 17 hrm , that's enough I can't keep track at my ripe old age.

    Left handed all my life. Sometimes it can be pretty hard. Hell, even underwear are made for righthanded folks. Grew up shooting righty bolt actions, never had any real problems . just awkward. Then I discovered Ruger No.1's. Whole new world now. And beautiful guns as well. My first, 1A in .270 is always the first in the deer woods. I now have 4, 1B in .22-250, 1B in .243 and a 1A in .257 stainless. Made a mistake with that one and took my lovely bride on a hog hunt and she bloodied it. Now she thinks it's hers. I did buy a lefthanded a-bolt in .300WSM a while back. Much easier than a righty.

    I feel single action revolvers and leverr rifles were created for us. Roll either to the left and loading/unloading is right there. Everything else, hot so much.

    I had a rem 1100 that I put a left hand safety on, never minded the right ejection. I did the same to my 870, keeps my right handed son from borrowing it I have what I think is the greatest bolt 22 in the Browning T-Bolt. The only right handed gun I do not like is a caplock. All the crap coming off the nipple is right in my face. I can do most things right handed and really don't think about it much. I do have to be careful with hand drills that I don't lock the switch on though.

    People say money can't buy happiness But it can buy me a Marlin and ammo to shoot in it, dies, powder bullets...

    Left-handed people are right-brained. That's where the creative abilities come into play. It's why so many artists are southpaws. Anyway, we lefties have always felt that everybody else who was right-handed was the odd man out.

    Lucky for me I'm left-eye dominant. It's all good.

    Complete lefty here. I just bought a LH Cabela's Hawken in .54 cal and there will be no more cap debris on my right arm now! I also have a .40 cal flintlock and that's nice. Am building an H&A style .54 cal underhammer right now too. They are good for lefties. I have a Rem. 788 in .308 cal. It is a great cast boolit shooter with it's Williams receiver sight. It is odd because it has the bolt handle on the left side of the receiver but it ejects the case out of the right side!
