Buds Gun Shop online usually has a good selection of southpaw stuff. I have purchased a lefty Ruger American Predator and a Tikka T3X lefty from them. Right now, the selection is pretty slim.

I'm left handed, hard core when it comes to long guns. If you check GunBroker.com and search LH rifles you'll find a bunch of them, a lot of different makes, models and calibers.

It would.

You can keep the rifle shouldered in any position, and maintain sight picture, and still cycle the bolt.

Not the case left hander, shooting a right hand rifle.

I'm a lefty and have never shot a left handed rifle or shotgun. My few years ago one of my buddies realized it looked odd when I reload but I'm just used to it I guess. I've found most lefty rifles are more expensive than right handed ones.

Check out Left Handed Gun in Hico, TX...plenty to choose from there. The owner is pretty old school so no inventory on their website, but he always has a good assortment on the shelves

Lefty here too but shoot mostly right bolt guns. Did break down and buy a left handed 308 years ago and have never hunted with it. Hunt mostly with pistols now but carry some sort of rifle for pigs out of pistol range.

I do everything lefty except shoot a bow. My favorite lefty bolt guns are savage and Remington. I have a handful of both, along with one lefty Browning medallion. They pop up for sale once in a while, and usually for pretty good prices. You just gotta keep an eye out. I dont mind shooing semi auto's in RH but there is just something more fluid with a shooting lefty with a lefty bolt gun. And when I sling carry a RH bolt gun on my left shoulder the stinking bolt always digs into my hip. I hate that. Good luck on the hunt for a good one!
