Maybe she meant shooting a left handed bolt action or something, I don't know.

There are some subtle differences. The thumb grip is on the wrong side and there a little knobby thing that get's pushed up with your thumb when you initially cock the gun when taking it out of storage that's on the wrong side. I can usually adapt to right-handed equipment over time.

I'd be careful with those high powered machine sniper rifle super soakers and their high capacity 2 litre clips if I were you CB. Might poke an eye out. ;)

Okay, I'm really going to show my age here (maybe Dave Jenkins might remember this one too), I think we should get SD a "Johnny Seven", seven lethal weapons in one! Anyone else remember these?

Oh ya...the little knobby thing that gets pushed up...that makes it so much more reassuring!! :ponder:

SD_SC1 don't let the anti-gunners around here distract you from enjoying the hobby of target shooting. I'm a lefty too and you will find that you can shoot almost any revolver/pistol without any problems. Unless it has carved or moulded target grips that are specifically made to fit a right handed grip.

I encourage you to excercise your legal rights to own and use firearms. You will meet some good people in the sport and most are very helpful and willing to share their experience.

PS: Where can I send your Interceptor/OneShotTacticalSupply team T-shirt? I'd send you an Actus/Canadian Blue shirt but it's probably too feminine for you! And the Gard one was too old, worn out and should have been retired a long time ago. :P

VanB trust me you don't want to get into a debate with the pro-gunners here.

You see. I had my gun with me. I think the safety was one, not sure. Someone bumped into the back of me and the gun went off and I shot myself in the foot. It definitely was not my fault. The guy behind me shouldn't have been walking so close to me. Am I at fault? Will I have to 'foot' the doctors bill?

Oh look, a bunny rabbit!





All in fun.......
