I went with a righthanded gun because it was easy to get and I was use to shooting like a righty. The saftey was swaped at gander and the spring that made the saftey too stiff was replaced at no charge. But see my new post!!

Shells are kicking forward and to the right. Never ever see the shell and no bouncing off my arm which was a concern as a lefty shooting a right handed gun. The only problem will be getting the spent shells out of the water, they pop pretty far out there...

I just used the right pad, it felt pretty good and had the Gander Mt. gunsmith change the cast for a left shooter. Shims came with the gun. Now I don't have to relearn loading on the left side of the gun.

A lefty might have trouble with the right handed SBE because they cycle so fast. I shoot right handed and have had some shells the put out dust that will get in your eyes. I would think it would be worse for a lefty. Never noticed this in any other guns. If I was left handed theres no doubt I'd have a lefty gun.

I am going to go with the right handed then ... I ahe shot my friends and there was no problems with the spent shells. It is easier to laod for me as well since I am used to loading a righty.

 

I will switch out the safety ...Not usre about the cast and shim for a left handed shooter. I didnt know there was a difference in left and right?

 

I will order a gel pad now might get here in 2 YEARS!!!

I switch to left-handed guns in 1987, all my guns are left handed now. There is no reason to shoot a right-handed gun. As far as learning to load and operate a left handed gun after a little adjustment you will never go back to right handed gun. And yes they are easy to find but you may have to look a little!!! A left-handed shotgun is a must if you shoot with both eyes open. There are too positives to shooting a left-handed gun to have to settle for a right handed one. If some thing is worth doing it is worth doing Left!!!!

cudos to you , shootem! I shot right handed guns for years until my first left handed 1187 remington which I purchased in 1987. Switched to Benelli 3 years ago and now own 3 Benelli left handed shotguns. Believe me, it is very easy and natural for a left handed shooter to switch to left handed guns! I don't understand why someone would continue using a safety in an unnatural way (ie. left thumb) when there is a much better and natural solution! Power to my much under-rated but more-numerous-than-you-think sinister brothers!
