    Anybody else do this? This guy shoots with his L hand on a R handed rifle on his L shoulder. If he wasn't changing targets, he could have, but dosen’t, keep his eye, cheek weld, rifle stock, and L shooting hand in exactly the same spot without moving anything except his free R hand just to cycle the bolt.

    I would have tried it myself after work today, except it poured, lightning, thundered, and all kinds of stuff.

    Advance the video to 2:35.

    My girl is left handed.. Shoots all my guns which are for right handed people without problem.. Semi shotgun, ar15, 10/22, 17hmr bolt action... Never has a problem.. Sea never shootin this fast tho lol...

    Really pissed me off in that episode of red jacket when the guy paid a crazy amount of money to have his ar15 switched to eject to the left...
    Hold it the right way and the casings will never touch u...

    Im a lefty and thats how i thought we were supposed to shoot right hand guns? I almost think its easier then a left hand gun. I have a marlin 880 I squirrel hunt with and its easy to make a follow up shot without loosing him in the scope.

    I didn't know.
    I think it might be 'easier' to stay on target for a R handed shooter with a R handed rifle too!

    Yeah but it was already his and he wanted it switched.... The owner was like tell him to get used to shootin it on the right when all he needed to do was shoot on the left...

    I have been shooting like this for a long time because of my left eye dominance. One of my drill instructors in Army boot camp saw me struggling at the firing range and recognized the problem. He suggested I shoot from a left-handed stance and it worked very well. Shooting like this works very well for me because it allows me to use my stronger arm to steady the rifle. I only have one rifle out of seven with a left-handed action. I am equally comfortable shooting all of them.
