re: any left handed shooters here?


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'm a righty. Just putting this info out there...

My brother and I are both LH but everything we shoot is RH. I never wanted to spend the extra money to get a lefty firearm.

The only bow I have access to is also RH.

Right handed but left eye dominant.

Shoot bows and long guns lefty, shoot handgun as a righty.

I shot RH bolt actions as a kid before folks identified that I shot from the left side. A LH bolt action rifle is worth the addtional spend as it keeps you from dismounting the gun to reload.

I generally use automatic shotguns with right side eject and havent been bothered by it. I dont see me splurging for a left side eject shotgun.

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.

re: any left handed shooters here?


I grew up shooting left handed because I could not close my left eye and keep my right eye open...

I had to wear a patch when I was really little and did not have the strength to shoot left handed. Then I graduated to being able to just shoot left handed.

But now I'm able to shoot left or right handed with ease.

I know. It's amazing I'm a functioning adult.

Pops is the same way. He shoots from both sides pretty well and shoots a left handed bow better than right handed.

I've been practicing shooting left handed for a few years now just because it helps so much to be able to do it in a deer stand.

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.

Lefty shooter here. Makes things awkward sometimes.

Everything else in life I do with my right though.

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.

Lucky for me the Marine Corps made me shoot LH. The transition was easy. It's just finding LH long guns can be tough. I hold my pistol in my right hand though and use my left eye.

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.

Shoot a gun left handed but have never owned a left handed gun. Luckily I shoot a bow right handed though, secnd hand/left handed bows are harder to come by.

I'm a lefty who's been shooting right handed guns all my life. I wouldn't know what to do with a LH 870 or AR
