For you lefty AR shooters out there, both Stag and Rock River Arms make left handed ARs. The RRA one is entirely left handed in that it even has a left hand barrel twist, and the Stag is mostly left handed.

I am left-handed. I have a left-handed AR and a right-handed AR. The brass deflector on the right-handed AR really makes it not matter. Now on some bolt-action rifles working the bolt when you are a lefty can be tricky and having hot brass fall on you is certainly not fun.
My M1A actually has something in the instruction booklet telling you that the gun was designed for a right-handed shooter the way Uncle Sam intended.
Sweat is left handed. I never realized the monumental pain in the arse it is for a left handed shooter in today's environment. I watched him get his face beat up by the Tavor as the spent brass ejected. I now have sympathy for lefties.

I've had to learn to adapt.
I shoot a rifle left-handed and a shotgun right-handed.
Not the best senario. I shoot a right-handed semi auto shotgun and pretty much see the side of my barrel when shooting. I've learned to make it work. Ive shot a shotgun right handed my entire life and I'm hesitant to make the switch.
There is no doubt that i should be shooting a shotgun left-handed. Is it worth it to to try to change at this stage? Any suggestions are more than welcome?
I'm a lefty but am right eye dominate so I learned to shoot righty at a very early age. The only things I do right handed are shooting and golf. Lefty for everything else. It comes so natural now that shooting lefty feels odd.

I'm a lefty. Never had a LH gun until I bought my SBE2. My ar is right handed and all my bolts have been right handed. I've never had a problem with casings or shells hitting me with a right handed gun. I also shoot a right handed bow but I shoot it left handed. Everyone says I'd be more accurate with a LH bow until they see me shoot.
