I shoot long guns left handed and have both right and left handed muzzle loaders and it doesn't really make any difference to me while shooting.

Lots of guys say shooting right handed guns is no problem but I find it SOOO much nicer to shoot the ones actually made for a left hander. Give a right hand guy a left hand rifle and watch how much fun they have trying to work with them. No good reason we should need to fight the other way round and safety is greatly enhanced having a gun built the the correct way for the shooter.

Buckweet what kind of accuracy do you get at 25 50 and 100 yards with the 32cal.?are you using musket balls or Minnie balls?

The last time l shot a muzzleloader was over 50 years ago, I'm thinking of doing something over the winter it would also have to be a lefthanded muzzleloader.
l'm not interested in a large caliber, l just want to do some target shooting more or lees fun shooting.

I have a custom made LH flintlock in 32. With no wind they are very accurate out to 100 yards. Any wind and shooting over 60 yards, you are better off with a 45. I shoot only round balls. They are a hoot for hunting small game like rabbits, squirrels and the like.
