    Left Hand Rifles

    Im a left handed shooter as well! (Except for the SA80 in the forces where you are all right handed!). Ive never shot a true left handed gun. Im pretty comfortable shooting right handed guns from the left shoulder. When shooting a modern rife from a bag or bipod i really like having my left trigger hand always on the grip as its stronger and can keep better control of the rifle while operating the bolt with my right. When taking a shot my right hand is tucked under and helps to pull the stock into my shoulder and keep the rifle steady. However im also quite keen on my ww2 rifles! In our club we shoot a lot of courses of fire and many of those involve shooting standing, kneeling and sitting unsupported. This is ok when shooting but can be a bit awkward operating the bolt/reloading. Because the guns tend to be fairly long and heavy its difficult to keep proper and safe control using only my left hand which ofcourse is holding the pistol grip/ rear grip area of the stock. What i tend to do is take the rifle out of my shoulder so i can grip it between my left arm and body while holding it with left hand (if you can imagine what that looks like). This gives me a decent grip of the whole thing while my right hand then operates the bolt/reloads. Then back upto my shoulder for a follow up shot etc. It takes more time overall. cheers.

    Sad news: Bradders.

    He gave me a stern telling off once on this very forum! He ofcourse was right and i was wrong. Met him earlier in the year and bought something from him at Bisley. Very sad to hear of his passing. Rip.
