Due to my eye dominance, I shoot lefty pretty much exclusively. I don't own any rifles yet, but I was wondering what the preferred method of shooting a bolt gun left-handed is. From what I can tell, there are 4 ways left-handed shooters approach a bolt-action rifle: 1) Keep hold on the grip with the shooting hand and use the support hand to cycle the bolt. I can see this being a lot easier if the weapon is supported with a bipod or bench, but for normal shooting slower than a right-handed shooter. It also looks like the bolt handle and the hand get real close to your face, whereas with a right-handed shooter it's to the side of your face. 2) Use the shooting hand to reach up and over the grip and cycle the bolt. It looks a little awkward but overall doable. 3) Buy a left-handed bolt action gun and make your right-handed friends and range buddies figure out how to shoot it. 4) Buy a levergun or semi-automatic, because those don't have a requirement to cycle a right-handed bolt every shot. For some reason I'm thinking a bolt gun looks fun (which is odd for me, because I generally prefer things that are a bit faster), but as a lefty I'm not really sure what approach is best.
