    For the left handed and other advantages.

    I created this as a area where left handers can post ideas, problems, pics and such of a left handers world.

    Good luck to all my friends in their RIGHT MIND.

    You guys are all backwards! Seriously, I feel for ya since my daughter is the only one in my family left handed. I know what she goes through in a right handed world. They just don't make many things right for you guys--especially in the shooting world.

    I was left handed as a child.
    But got the so-called re-training now I can use either for a lot of things but not all.

    I have no disadvantage I can shoot very well with either hand. I encourage all my family to practice it. My grand daughter became very good at it with little instruction.

    I used to have an ambidextrous long bow I hunted with when I was younger, that was an advantage in a tree stand when a deer would come up on the "other" side.

    Never really found it a problem,guess you get used to it growing up. Sometimes it can be an advantage. I find I can do a lot of things with both hands,I think it's called adapting.lol.
    Make sure the juice is worth the squeeze.

    Never liked shooting the old Winchester 94s left handed, rounds sometimes would work on my hats visor.

    Never owned a left bolt gun, but have had a quite a few single shots like the TCs and early Savage break open rifles.

    I became so accustomed to right handed bolts that when I bought a Left handed one it was kind of awkward at first. My biggest problem with right handed guns is that some pistols eject right into my forehead which may be why I like Blackhawks so much.
    Thanks for the Lefty area by the way.

    Pure Left Handed here!. Can't do much with my right hand.
    Never had a problem with Marlins and for the longest time used a Rt. Hand bolt action and Rugers single shots, which I adore for their handiness, quality and design.
    Luckily the manufacturers came out with reasonably priced LT Hd bolt actions several years ago and I jumped on one right away. What a difference!
    It was a Winchester 70 in 375, now veteran of several big game hunts. I built (with help) a 30-06 mauser LH and got another mauser in 458, which I modified and posted a while ago.
    There some reasonably priced LH Bolt actions outhere which are very nice for the money.
    Keep on tricking, Lefties!
