HK USP series.
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.
Don't even get me started about how that gun is my fav - Everyone here knows I never shut up talking about the P99 - U can browse the Walther section for past threads if ya like..
Check out Ruger.
Never argue with drunks or crazy people.
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.
im also new here, but i do know that the beretta px4 storm has ambi mag release, my bro has that pistol but i havent shot it or know how it is?
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...
@ the price....little more than I wanna spend.Originally Posted by Dorian
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.....
