I agree with you. We lefties deserve recognition. Funny how much we have been able to operate guns and many other items specifically designed for a right handed person. I have tried to work some lefty items but was unable to after working with them for so many years with my left hand.

Once had a left handed corkscrew -- this when I was tending bar. After getting accustomed to it, I realized exactly how great it was. Unfortunately, it was a piece of junk and pulled apart after about 2 weeks. For two weeks I understood how nice it could be.

im actually right handed but for some reason i have ALWAYS shot lefty and i have ALWAYS kicked lefty. no need for left footed soccer balls. however, being a left handed shooter it gives me a sneak peak into how much of a pain in the rear it is to find things that fit and are made to work for u

right handed

Hey, there's another thread in the Clubhouse Office called "Southpaw":

http://www.glocktalk.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=261291

It only has a few people right now, so we should grab them and consolidate them into this thread.

Count me in. Would like #13 or #1313. One topic would be what brand and style of lefty holsters for Glock 20's and 21's are available. Think the Fobus, which looks good, is righty only.

There are many other left topics. ;)

Add me to the list.

Iím in.

This would be a nice place to talk about left hand friendly guns like the Walther G22 or Beretta Storm CX4, both of which can be switched between Right and Correct (left) handed fire.

What other weapons can be switched?

PS I bought the Storm the day I found out how easy it was to switch to lefty.

Fellow Lefty's,


What is a good lefty holster for a Glock 20? What is a good place to buy it?

What is a good ambi safety for a 1911 style pistol (10mm actually)? Again, what is a good place to buy it?

Thanks Alan

I'm left handed, and I hate it when a right handed person tries to show me how my stance should be when I'm shooting! It just messes me all up. And thats my complaint for today. Thank You.;f

Me too, another left-handed, right-eyed shooter checking in (I shoot handguns left and longarms right).

The cool thing about a lefty forum here at GT is that we can feed off of the other forarms, like lefty friendly hosters and holster makers, rifles and shotguns (and mods for the same), knives, and everything else for folks that stand on the right side of their firearms.

C'mon, lefties. We need this club, so we can collectively piss and moan about Sidearmor offering almost no left-handed models (do they offer any left-handed models at all?)

what are the odds of someone making a left handed gun?
Mag release and slide stop on right side of gun, ejection port on left side of gun, if non glock, decocker and or safety also on right side of gun.
Lets see a righty try to shoot it, especially a 1911a - Left.

Speedrock
01-18-2005, 19:15
"Lets see a righty try to shoot it, especially a 1911a - Left."

An outfit in Sun Valley, CA has already done so, albiet only breifly, for a couple of years in the mid'80's and about 10K pistols-all "mirror-image" 1911's. {even the rifiling was reversed!}

Unfortunately way before their time, they produced the first production SS guns also! {"The Only Stainless Steel Auto Fit For Duty"}

jilverthor

I am in, and to answer the previous question about sidearmor, they do make left handed models. Just not a whole bunch of them and mainly for Glocks.

Left handed OWB modular for most any glock
Left handed 4th Gen IWB for mid-sized glocks

lcp
02-07-2005, 20:13
Count me in. I had a left hand Benelli shotgun that I had a great deal of problems selling. Anyone else have trouble buying of selling a left handed gun.

jilverthor
02-07-2005, 20:53
I must correct my earlier post, it is not the 4th gen IWB, only the standard IWB.

But it also fits the 29/30 and the subcompact glocks.

Alright, now we need a name/description for the forum.

I was thinking The Southpaw Forum, haven't thought of a description yet, but maybe something along the lines of "right" handed people, I don't know? ;g

Thoughts/suggestions are welcome, we need to get this figured out before it can be setup so the sooner the better. If we can all agree on something I'll get it setup.

Thanks guys/gals!

how bout, "Wrong handers forum", or "On the other hand, the forum for left handers"

and in the description something like "where lefties gather"

Gunslinger's John Wesley Hardin & William Bonney {Billy the Kid} were both LH.......

FWIW:

Title: The Southpaw Forum

Description: "Lefties do it right"
or "Everything you wanted to know
about being left-handed but were afraid to ask"

Well, in any case, the word "wrong" should not be there, right?
