I very naturally shoot pistols lefty and rifles righty. Really helps with tactical shooting!
I use both eyes for pistol and only the right for rifles.
What works works.
Oddly, my regular shooting buddy is just the opposite!

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...:eek:
Haha, same here. I learned on and shot righties my whole life and when I finally got a LH bolt action at 45 years old, I worked like a goof who had never handled a bolt action. Lefties adapt. :D

As of a year ago, I have finally replaced all of my right handed rifles with lefties. While I have fewer rifles than at any time over the past 15 years, I am satisfied with these four bolt action lefties:
  • CZ 452 (22 LR)
  • CZ 527 (.223 Rem.)
  • Savage M77 Hawkeye (204 Ruger)
  • Savage 93GL (22 WMR)
Finally, the pride of the gun safe is a truly ambidextrous Ruger No. 1V in 222 Rem. That rifle is one of a kind, as Ruger never built a 1V in 222. I had a 1A converted to a 1V with a Krieger barrel, a Jard 1.75 lb. trigger and a 1V stock.

The bad news is theleft handed CZ 452, CZ 527 and the Savage M77 Hawkeye are out of production. I still see the Savage 93GL for sale at several outlets but that is about it.for reasonable priced decent quality lefties.

You may have noticed I am down to one lefty in 22 LR. By having Don Stith make a BR stock for my 452, while being able to switch stocks in 5 minutes or less, I have both an off hand sporter and a light Sporter class BR rifle in one rifle. That is all I need. If you have never seen the 452 with the Don Stith stock, here it is:

Great idea Onearm building the Ruger 1V in .222.
Ditto for the CZ 452 stock swap.
I have several left hand .22 rifles of different makes and some ambidextrous like Ruger #1's and lever.
Just bought a Belgium Browning T-Bolt grade 2 that is going to be a somewhat project gun.
