  • Whats a good gun for a lefty?

    I have been looking for a gun that is lefty friendly. I found a Sig about 8months ago but when I went to go buy it the store got rid of their guns because they were being bought out. And no I forgot the model #. Any help?

    HK variant 2 or 4 is lefty in both the safet and the mag release is ambi.

      I am a lefty and I carry a Sig 220 I have had to adapt to the little things but no major differences.

        Any gun is lefty friendly with practice. Its not the gun, its the shooter.

          Smith & Wessons also have the ambi safeties....

            I'd say the Glock pistols. No safetys to flip on or off & other than that anything you want to do/ with a sidearm the Glock will do just as easily. I'm left -handed & when I was issued the Glock my shooting score went up 12pts (on avg)

                  I'm also a lefty, and have really enjoyed the Springfield XD in .357 Sig. I actually carry a 1911 right handed 99% of the time, due to a life of training to shoot the same with either hand (Dad was Special Forces), and the availability of holsters, and accessories. Training above all with any weapon is the key, with either hand.

                    There are those who claim that John Browning was a lefty, as the 1911 seems easier to manipulate if you are left handed.

                      I'm relatively sure your talking about Sam Colt and the SAA which has it's loading gate on the right side and thus requires you to switch hands in order to reload. The 1911 has the safety on the left side which is a bit difficult for the lefty to drop w/o using his off hand or pointer finger.

                        PK, some of my sinster (left in Latin) handed friends find the 1911 semi-automatic pistol easy to operate using their trigger finger for both safety and mag release.
                        I can't do it, but I can operate the (left side) safety with my thumb when shooting left handed.
                        And JMB designed the Colt M1909 .45 pistol without a manual safety, so it was fully ambi-dextreous (however you spell it).

                          Not a LEO but I concur with hemicop. My Glock 35 works great. I also loved my Browning Hi-Power, but I don't know if that would work for LE.

                            i'd agree that for the most part, training is the key. i will say though, there are a few guns that falt-out didn't work for me. the Sig 228's mag release rests just under my trigger fingger causing me to periodically (and unintentionally) drop my mag. but i understand that Sigs can be converted to a lefty mag release with a little smithing. i've been very happy with my HK's and several other Sig models. and revolvers :-)

                              It would be more comfortable to use my thumb since I do not have big hands. I have been to a couple places and they said they did not carrie any weapons with a mag release on the right side. It is true that I have not looked that hard, I will say. But all in all I rather be comfortable. Thank you so much for the feed back!
