hey yall, I'm looking to purchase a AR15, and the problem is that I shoot rifles lefty. so is it really worth it to spend the time trying to find a left handed rifle? I plan on using it for hogs, and foxes.
thanks and God Bless

I've got a left-handed upper. it's not bad but I really don't see it as any better than a right handed one. so long as I have an ambi safety I'm good to go.

I would have loved to have one when I was active duty. The Range coaches loved walking down the line and spraying down rifles with CLP during qual day, hard to shoot to 500 yds when you can't see.

Respectfully Submitted

why does CLP prevent you from seeing?

when you apply it with a spray bottle through the ejection port and are not issued or allowed non-regulation eye pro the first couple of rounds you fire is going to spray it all over your face.

I ended up getting a prescription for reading glasses from medical and just shot with those the next year.

I'm a lefty. Never been hit in the face with brass. All of my AR's have a Raptor charging handle, Bad-Ass short throw safety levers, and Norgon Ambi-catches. I still train on non-ambi'd rifles, but my work, training and home rifles all have the above mods.
