I agree with Rick. I train by grabbing the slide, better muscle memory if you have a malfunction as well.
Here is a pic of a cz 85 you can clearly see all the controls just as they would be on the left side of the gun.
I see that you are right about the cz. But again, I would still not use the slide release. But that is just my thing.
Romans 1:16 I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.
The M&P line has slide release on both sides and the mag release is switchable.
I'm surprised no one has chimed in yet on HK. My HK P30S is a truely ambi gun. I'm also left handed so this was a big issue for me. The HK has the mag release, slide release and safety on both sides.
Sr9 looks good to me hope to get one before the first of year
OH! Randall makes a left handed 1911. All you need is about $3k, go for it!http://www.m1911.org/mod_randall.htm
