I'm amazed at the high percentage of southpaws here. Or perhaps lefties are more inclined to take part in polls?




---- Lefties are the only people in their "Right minds"

Think about that one!

Or its that the M&P supports leftys more than others.

I think Joker is right. One of the reasons I leaned towards the M&P was that it is ambi out of the box. That wasn't the only reason, of course, but it did play a role.

I'm kind of ambi

When I was a kid mom broke me of drawing left-handed - I think she thought the nuns would do their ruler bit when I got to school.



So I write, throw, shoot right-handed but I'm left eye dominant.



I found I shoot well left-handed and have toyed with the idea of playing around with a left hand holster. With my M&P having an ambi release I may try it with a cheap holster.



I found I favor my left hand on a lot of tasks. For instance I don't bother shifting my knife to right hand to cut meat at a meal.

Right handed, but can shoot fine ambi with rifles or pistols. Left eye dominant as well, but have trained my right eye so I can shoulder with my right shoulder with rifles as well.

I'm right handed, but I can shoot with either. When I shoot left, I aim with my left eye, when I shoot right I shoot with my dominant eye (right). When I eat, I keep the knife in my right but I eat with my left fork... I don't switch the fork back and forth.



When I shoot with a gun in each hand, I use a different eye for each gun. I shoot rifles ambidextriously. The same with paintball guns (to cut down on my target size).

I'm right handed, but shoot guns and archery left handed...it just feels more natural. Aparently I used to be ambidextrous, but broke myself of in early on because everyone else in my elementary school class was right handed...I thought it was wierd, I guess.



I haven't tried shooting anything right handed...but would like to see if I'm any good at it. As far as those gun-video games are concerned, I can switch around from left to right...so I'm not sure how that will translate over to the real deal, but it's worth a shot.

Right handed, left eye dominant which allows me to fire pistols well, but rifles not so well, until I started firing left handed. The only rifle I fire on a frequent basis is the M16A2 (I am in the Guard) and just came back from the range fully qualified but not expert. The last time I q'd on the M9, I scored expert. Thanks for asking

Right handed, left eyed. I shoot my camera left eyed too, but when I was a kid on the farm I would shoot the rifle right eyed, now I'm more comfortable using the left eye due to shooting with the camera.

lefty.

switching the mag release was my first modification ever. I was so proud of myself.



left eye is frustraiting for photography because cameras are ergonomically set up for right-eyed folks. moving the camera those 2 inches to the left means that your right eye is now blocked by the back of your hand and your nose is pushing up against the back of the camera.

Left handed, left eyed and shoot to the 4 o'clock, whether it be my M&P or .44 Redhawk or my son's Desert Eagle. But, I bat and swing a golf club right handed.
