Lefty here. I ended up dropping the extra cash on a HK P2000 because I liked the ambi slide and magazine releases so much.

I need to practice shooting right with a rifle though... I'm right eye dominant.

I never seem to get hit with my own brass; it's always somebody else's.

Lefty here, not a lady though.

The 1911 is completely adaptable to left handed shooting (I have 2). I have ambi thumb safeties on mine, otherwise all stock. You will get quick at dropping mags with your trigger finger, and in reality the slide stop isn't supposed to be used much on a 1911. Great gun for a lefty.

Not female, but I am left handed. Being that my primary interest is vintage C&R firearms - particularly military - it does complicate shooting military bolt actions. And of course stuff with off-set scopes like the M1 Garand snipers are useless to me.

I have a left-hand Savage 110L .30-06 barreled action listed on the "Private Firearms For Sale" forum here for $250 + shipping if anyone is interested. It's in good condition, all you need is a barrel nut and the stock of your choice and you're ready to shoot. Comes with a set of Weaver rings and bases and a Redfield Jr. base - both are still new in the box.

If anyone is interested, email me directly at vonweigert@earthlink.net and put "Savage 110" in the subject line.

Hello

I am left-handed/right-eyed and simply canting the pistol (35 degree-ish for me) lines the sights up perfectly without having to twist my neck or drop my head at all. It is a simple technique allowing proper arm alignment and the mechanics actually strengthens your wrist (ie no problems with jamming even with very picky Berettas). Your concern about brass also is addressed by the fact that ejection now has a down and away path. I have shared this tip with several cross-dominant shooters and all have gone from not knowing where their bullets traveled to having nice groupings immediately.

Semi-related (kinda, in a way...) I saw this just yesterday on SurvivalBlog and this thread reminded me of it. So I figured I'd share. I don't know if it's a good deal or not b/c I've never looked into left handed rifles (I'm a righty). Anyway, here is it...

Thanks yes I have noticed when shooting in doors that is an issue. Outdoor shooting is a non issue because my ejector places the casings at about 2-3 o'clock
