Re: Lefty

I dont shoot that way but know some people that did. Wear safety glasses is my recommendation.

Re: Lefty

I shoot lefty and had a right hand muzzleloader.My biggest problem was the hot flecks of burning powder that hit my face.Now have a Lyman Deerstalker lefty and love it.No issues with the hot powder at all.

Alrighty then!

Re: Lefty

I shot a right handed gun for years with no issues at all . It's hard to wear saftey glasses while hunting but I always wear them at the range.Don't over fill the pan and you should be OK.

I had 2 righty's and sold both in a heartbeat. Had that happen on numerous occasions, even with glasses on. Not anymore!

Re: Lefty

Right now is a rough time for finding them, especially used... since the season is all but a week away.

You won't regret a lefty if you so indeed shot a rifle left handed... it'll be the best decision you ever made.

Re: Lefty

Thatta boy!!!

You're going to be in love...

I really like the TC renegade line, but the more I shoot my Lyman, the more I am really starting to love it. They shoulder like a dream, and are nice to tote around. Accuracy is top notce for sure.
