I am left handed and I've been noticing something as I spend time on this forum: there are a lot of lefties among the regulars posting here. Lefties make up about 10% of the general population, but I am finding a way higher percentage of us in the 'family' of regular, every day denizens of the friendliest gun forum in existence.
Now, I don't want this to devolve into a righty .vs. lefty debate, or any such thing. Don't want it to be a ***** (female dog) fest about discrimination against us by gun and holster manufacturers. Actually, things have been getting better on that front as more gun makers are creating guns with ambidextrous controls (although I wish we could see some with the option of having the ejection port on the left
), and more and more holster makers are offering the shooting hand option, though there are many retailers who still behave like we don't exist.
A little theorizing about why such a large percentage of avid gun lovers and Kahr owners are lefties is in order. My theory is that the right brain dominance has something to do with it, bringing out an interest in fine engineering.
So, I am raising my hand and declaring that I am a total lefty. Left handed, left eye dominant, part my hair on the left, left writing, left kicking, left throwing and left shooting. And I am asking that every one of you who is a lefty raise your hand (post a reply) and let us know about yourself, post pics and videos of your left hand holsters and gear, and shooting your guns left handed.
You know, we could even start a Left Handed Shooters Social Club (I think there is a way to do social clubs on this forum).
So, let's hear from every one of you!
