Just shot a RRA AR 14 -- very frustrating!

    Just got back from the range. Shot my Kimber a lot, my friends Glock and had a great time. Shot my first rifle too. A guy there was testing out some handloads with his Remington 300 Win mag. He competes in long range shooting and let me "have a go" with his rifle at 100 yards. The trigger had no creep and after my shot ( which was more of a flyer) he told me he set the trigger at 2 lbs. Geez, all I did was rest my finger on it and off she went! I was still only two inches off center.

    My friend let me shoot her new Rock River Arms AR 14. Incredible. She has a mil dot sight on it and I have to say I'm hooked.

    Except for one thing. I'm left handed and that gun, at least with my first experience is totally set up for a right hander. I found it very awkward.

    Any AR 14-15 types that are more left hand friendly?

    Thanks in advance,

    jzz...

    I'm a lefty and have no problems with my Colt AR-15. I did put a DPMS ambidextrous selector lever on it but otherwise have made no mods to the gun. Handle it and shoot it more and in general, get used to the gun, and I think you'll find it pretty southpaw-friendly.
