As anyone who is bored enough to follow my occasional posts will know, I am in the process of moving self and family to the U.S. Where I most certainly intend to continue to hunt and shoot.
As is plain from my site name, I shoot left handed. I am left handed, and blind in my right eye, so I shoot from my left shoulder, and will do so until I die.
I have decided that it is probably easier/better to sell my two LH bolt rifles here in the UK and buy again once settled in the U.S. And I have been assuming that I'd just buy left hand bolt actions, very possibly new Savage or second hand Remington 700/Winchester 70... Something like that anyhow. I may yet.
Then I got wondering about a Savage 99 in anything UK deer legal (I intend to come back and stalk again) and wondered what people think about:
A) Lever actions for deer hunting/stalking
B) Lever actions for left handed shooting
C) The Savage 99 amongst lever action rifles
Any thoughts gratefully received doubly so from any fellow lefties who have tried this route.
