Muzzleloaders are ambidexterious. So are Henry Repeating Rifles.

Re: shooting right handed guns left handed??

I own and shoot both right and left hand rifles. I shoot left-handed. The only problem with these, is if the stock has a comb that is for right hand shooting. I have even shot those before with no problem, though. Other than that, I have never had an issue with it.

My ex-bil shoots left--handed, but won't buy a left-hand rifle. He said he does this because he likes to trade/sell guns and a right hand gun is much easier to sell. I had never thought about that, but he is pretty much right.

Me too on all of this. I shoot left and use right hand rifles. My last 3 are using a straight stock therefore face position is mute. My family swaps around with me and it makes a nice for them to not have to adapt to a lefty. I have 1 left handed rifle in a model 700 BDL and they all freak out when using it. So they don't LOL.

Sorry guys I had thought this thread had died off so I hadn't checked it for a while.
Thank you for all the replies it sounds there is a bunch of us out there with the same issues!
Sounds like if I just get a beaver tail stock or a "left handed" stock built for a right handed bolt all will be good.thanks again for all the replies and opinions

Related to the thread I have a more specific question. Normally I'm a 100 % righthanded but except shooting. I've been shooting lefthanded my whole life same as my father did. So, now my question. I could purchase a lovely Sendero SF II in 7 RM but I'm in doubt due to the stock with its palmswell. What do you think and does it matter to me as lefty?
