tHE PERFECT PISTOL SHOT BLOG
For decades left-handers have had to switch or add controls to handguns designed primarily for right-handers. It began with the 1911 and continues with more modern pistols. Oddly, that has worked to the advantage of left-handers. Every defensive shooter must be able to operate a handgun with either hand, and in order to do so with the greatest efficiency the handgun needs to be ambidextrous. Left-handers, then, are at least equipped for ambidextrous operation. The majority of shooters (right-handers), however, never set-up their pistols for possible left-handed operation. Think about "the other side" when setting-up your pistol for defensive use.
