Thread: Ambidextrous Weapon??

  1. I am left handed and basically all guns can be easily used by lefties. My carry weapon is a Taurus 24/7 DUO. Its all just a small learning curve to be quick and accurate with any weapon

    I believe that the H&K's are built for ambidextrous use. Very nice handguns!

    I'm a lefty, although due to the miracle of dry practice I can now shoot equally well with my right hand. I don't have any problems with pistols designed for right handed people unless the safety is only on the left. The magazine release isn't a big issue because it's just as easy to hit it with my index finger on the left as it is with my thumb on the right. I do swap it over if it's an option though. The position of the slide stop doesn't matter either, it just takes a different technique to lock the slide back.

    I carry a Sig P229 and I've swapped the mag release over to the right side.

    I like the XDm's because they have an ambidextrous mag release.

    My Taurus 1911 has a ambidextrous thumb safety.

    I would have to agree with the above post about the Sig P250. It appears to be truly ambidextrous.

  5. Thanks for the suggestions!!!
    This is my wife's first gun. She has shot before, but always with borrowed weapons. She's actually a better shot than me, and most of the other people I know, natural talent does have its place. I have convinvced her to try 45s and 40s, I know she's OK with a 9mm, I want her to figure out what she is most comfortable with, and I'm not going to argue :-). She really wants a left handed slide release, even though I have explained she really won't need it outside of practicing dry in the gun store. So, left haded safeties, slide releases and magazine releases it is. I am looking aroud to see if anyone has the HK or Sig in stock. I'll let everyone know what we end up with. THanks!!

    I have the same issue. Ruger, H+K, Sig, S+W 642 is very popular works for everybody if you don't mind a wheel gun. they only weigh 15 oz. just keep on looking on there web sites for models that will work for both.

    Yes the P250 has an ambi slide release. It is DAO so there is no sofety to deal with, it only goes bang when you pull the trigger. As I said I love my 9mm, and am looking to get the .40 conversion soon and use that as my c arry weapon. I can practice with the cheaper 9mm ammo and have the exact same trigger pull in a .40. I've onlly had mine for about two months and have put about 200 rounds through it. NO problems. Check out www.p250sig.com for more references from owners. There are guys on there with over 1000 rounds through theirs and no problems.

    Thanks for replying back, I have been looking at the sig's lately and am impressed. being left handed my option's are limited, on somethings after awhile you just get used to dealing with it. as for the start of this post the 642 smith's are very popular for the lady's, right or left handed will work fine.

    Thanks DJ58

    My Springfild XDm 9mm has no safety, the mag release is on both sides. The grip back plate is replaceable (with three choices) to accomadate hand size. Standard match barrel, very smooth and accurate.

  11. Well, after several shopping trips and yesterday's gun show, and several hundred weapons held and played with, she seem to have settled on th S&W MP9c. Any pros and cons to this gun?
    Do I have to worry about her shooting herself when she holsters it? I haven't worked with a double action only gun without manual safeties, so I am concerned of an accidental trigger pull for a novice...........
