I happened to be with a distributor the other day and the conversation came to left handed rifles. The decision had been made that no left hand action would be made by this particular manufacturer as it wasn't worth it.
Letting the red mist settle......we discussed that 15% of people are left handed. We also discussed whether left handed people tended to need to be more passionate about their sports because it is always that much harder to obtain equipment.
We talked about left hand people using right hand actions, but I pointed out that it was a bit of a double edged sword, because if that were the case, then surely the same proportion of right handed people should want a left hand action and therefore increase demand.
So, a quick poll please - using the options, please help me collate some data. I'm interested to see:
Whether many left handed people make do with RH action rifles, either through lack of supply or too long a wait;
Whether the proportion of LH shooters is the same as the ratio for just being left or right handed; and
If any RH people would prefer a LH action.
Not looking to change the world - just want to see whether the underlying data is right on a slow, rainy Sunday evening...!
