Left handed guns are/were much more common, though haven't looked to buy since the china plague hit. I have a left handed version of all my long guns. I should have jumped on a couple of left handed pistols offered back in the day. Good to see the group still rolling on.

I'm right handed but shoot LH because of eye dominance. Several years ago I bought a couple LH 870's then a LH Savage rimfire. My centerfires were RH. Since the first of the year I've bought a couple LH Savage actions and built a 22-250 and a 260 Remington. It's pretty cool to not have to dismount the rifle to cycle the action.

I also shoot some fun benchrest .22 matches, RH rifles work well for that.

LH Anschutz 1761 sporter
LH Ruger Gunsite Scout
LH Remington 870
Browning Citori
Lots of handguns shot from the left

And ANA just informed me that my LH 1761 MPR will be here in two weeks.

The LH is strong in this one.

I've got several LH rifles. Problem is, I've been shooting RH guns for so long, I actually hate handling my LH guns!! Completely un-natural! Awkward to use and all the controls are in the wrong place.
Weird, but true...

It works, problem is, there are limited number of topics that are LH specific. Unless someone comes out with something new, like a LH chainsaw, circular saw or one that is actually ambidextrous, there isn't a lot new to talk about. At least LH kids don't get the Spawn of Satan treatment that was still common when I was a kid.

I do find it odd that places will give up 15% market share of Lefties, but you see it with Gluten allergies too. At least 25% of the population is avoiding Gluten due to allergies or other reasons yet try to find non-gluten options in restaurant, or grocery stores.

Left Hand

I guess I am totally screwed up. I shoot long guns left hand, hand guns right hand with left eye dominance. Write right hand and throw left hand. Grew up shooting right hand guns so it is more natural I guess. I do own left hand Cooper 57M, two Anschutz 1416, CZ 452, Caesar Guerini Sporting, Beretta 682 Sporting with balance right hand assortment or ambidextrous such as Ruger #1.
When I go to a store that has tools and if I am asked if I need some help I say: Yes, I am looking for a left hand tape measure. Only ever had one clerk know what I was talking about. When I use a tape measure I pull the tape out with my left hand and mark with my right so the tape is always upside down. You can special order left hand tape measures but never did.
Now that I am getting later in life my left eye has the worst vision. Bummer.

left handedness

I was left-handed and right eye dominant in the beginning. I spent the summer when I was nine years old, learning to write with my right hand (my father promised he'd buy me a rifle if I accomplished that task). I was never quite as good writing right handed as left, but I can still do it when needed. Shooting rifle right handed felt natural. I shot pistol left handed, and eventually tried using my left eye. It works out better for recovery from recoil (when shooting a semi-auto). Nowadays, I shoot rifle right handed and aim with my right eye, and I shoot pistol left handed and aim with my left eye. More than anything else, it is a matter of learning to coordinate you unsed hand, and learning to see with you non-dominant eye. For persons without physical disabilites, where there is a will, there is a way.
I have two air pistols; one with a left-handed grip (for regular shooting), and one with a right-handed grip (just for fun).
Three of my rifles can be shot left-handed, but only one is (mostly) ambidextrous (my Anschutz 335 break barrel rifle). The others are completely right handed.
