Im both.. but the price is way to much...I keep thinking that having one to match a right handed one would be a nice set.

Left eye dominent, Shoot Long Guns Left Handed...Primary carry & other pistols RH. Can shoot pistol left handed also but not near as good... Would only do it I had to, sometimes I pack my Keltec in a remora holster at 830...

Started out right handed but a 50BMG exploded and took most my right hand and wrist. Now I shoot left. Not too well but can hit the target most of the time.

That sucks. Sorry man. Must admit I'm kinda curious about it... The story and how it looks. Don't mean to be offensive at all.

Was shooting a Maadi with ammo that a friend gave me. Went and shot about 100 rounds then on about 101 or so slammed in a fresh round and as soon as it hit the chamber it lit off. Did have time to throw the bolt. The only thing trying to hold it in was my hand and it lost. The bolt cut a path between my thumb and index finger to my wrist. What I have left of my hand is my ring and pinky fingers and parts cann'ed from all over my body. 22 surgery later and what I miss the most is the wrist and the thumb. Pic maybe this weekend.
