    I'm a seriously right handed person. I can't do very many things switch handed.

    For some reason I can shoot a slingshot equally well from either hand. Might be from riding around in my old buddies car as a kid.

    I learned to shoot out of the passenger window with the slingshot in my right hand. I normally shoot archery holding the bow in my left hand.

    I can also hold the bow in my right hand but not nearly as accurately.

    When I practice pistol shooting I usually try to take some shots with my left hand in case i ever need to do that.

    I've shot from both hands. I'm right-handed and prefer to shoot holding the slingshot in my left hand, but I've made shooters now for 2 left-handed shooters and have tested them by shooting them from my right hand. I was surprised too that I was actually somewhat accurate shooting in my non-dominant hand. Probably a good thing to practice from time to time.

    I just tried it last night, took 4 shots across my shop at a strung up soda can and had 4 hits. It felt alien though.

    You could cut the right side of me off and I probably wouldn't notice. I tried once to shoot right-handed and, like Dolo said, it felt alien. Actually, it felt freakishly bizarre and resulted in my first RTS.

    RTS = Return to Sender?

    If that's the case, sorry about that. I sure didn't mean for that to happen. :(
