    Southpaw looking for a gun...

    Hi everybody, Im looking for a gun thats made for a lefty shooter like myself. I know of 2 that are fully ambidextrous. The HK P2000, which I didnt really like the way it felt in my hand, and also the price, and the S&W M&P which I DID like....alot. But Id hate to think that with all the gun manufactuers out there, only 2 of them make a gun with ambidextrous capabilities. Do I have any other options?

    Well I'm suprised Shipwreck hasn't jumped on here yet extolling the virtues of the P99, so I will

    The Walther P99 series, check 'em out. I've got a friend who's a lefty and it worked great for him at the range.. Also available in a compact version, which is my carry piece.

    Walther P88 and the Bersa line are good for lefties. Regards, Richard

    I completely forgot about the Walther! I was checking it out at the store last time. It felt like a toy at first, but the more I held it, the more I liked it.

    The ultimate hand gun for ambidextrous shooters is the H&K P7M8.
    It has NO side mounted levers for safety or slide release.
    All of these are controlled by a grip lever on the front strap,
    “think grip safety on a 1911” good firing grip all is good to go,
    relax grip you are on safe it is just that easy.
    An ambidextrous magazine release to top it all off & you are done.

    Yes, U can swop the mag release. SOme of the other guns mentioned, though, require no swop - the mag release works from both sides already.

    But, the Beretta 92 also has a swopable mag release...

    What about a FNH FNP 9? I see it has some ambidextrous features, but I havent heard much about the company. Anyone know if they're good guns?

    I think ya should give the P99 a chance.

    But yes, I have heard nothing but good things about the gun. Looks sweet with the stainless slide too.

    Just an ambi mag release is a royal PITA for a 1911, never heard of an ambi slide release either. I'm betting there is no such animal.

    Even if they made a 1911 with ambi. stuff, I wouldnt get it, Im not a fan of 1911's. No offense.

    And after goin to the store and comparing guns, I decided Im going with the Walther in a 9mm.

    Now if I could just get the state to hurry up and give me my permit.....
