I assume you're relying on that poll because those are the calibers you do/may offer? I say this because there are other calibers that come to mind that aren't listed. Just a comment.

After I bought my first lefty I was sold on them. Have six to date and most took about 6-9 months to make. Don't care how long it takes. I want the best gun....for me

Lefties---------------God's cruel joke? From a purely economic business perspective having product sit on the shelf is costly. to some degree, how fast could you turn a custom southpaw around for a customer would be the main selling point. Cash on the barrel, is four weeks out of the question? If not, then by all means take the lefthand orders. Long range shooting is a challange, make southpaw custom a challange and expand business horizons.
Then again, I may be missing the target on this one. Nothing ventured, nothing gained!

I think that your potential sales, at least initially, will be greater than the 10% LH shooter figure because there is a pent up demend in the market. Plus it would give you some measure of "goodwill" to offer quality rifles to that segment of the market.

Yes, I'm left handed.

My vote would be is if you are willing to at least offer to make them that would be huge. If there isn't enough demand to keep one on the shelves then that's fine. I'd be willing to wait a few extra weeks to get a custom build in left handed.

Off them in which ever other calibers you already build rifles in if that is possible.

Well being left handed myself, I actually enjoy shooting right hand bolt guns. My right hand is quick to reload and my left gets to stay home on the trigger. That being said, I have actually heard a few righty guys shooting lefty bolts for same reason. Mainly blaser guys though. That could be another angle for you...

Never owned a lefthanded gun, learned with a righthanded and never looked back. Just my 2 cents.
