    Do we talk about shooting leftis who holds the ss with here left hand while shooting.
    Or (what i understand) leftis like writing eating make precise things with the left hand!
    (I'm a right handed in the type of writing etc. But all other stuff like snowboard, ss, and diffrend other things i'll do like an lefty) so i'm think im 50%/50%.

    That means your truly left handed then. A typical left hander will hold a slingshot or bow in their right hand and draw with the left as most lefties are left eye dominant.
    Some shoot right handed because thats what they were taught, or thats how everyone else was doing it.
    For me I write/ draw, play guitar, shoot bows / slingshots and rifles left handed, but when it comes to sports I am right hand oriented as thats how I was taught, or how I learned by watching others.
    My sister however is left handed also but only writes and draws left handed everything else is right handed.

    I'm kinda ambidextrous. I shoot lefty though. Trying to branch out into shooting with either hand though.

    Yup, being left handed does not mean holding the slingshot in your left but in your right hand!

    When I am teaching people how to fly birds they always get really confused when I put a glove on their non-dominant hand "But I'm left/right-handed". My answer is always, "Yeah, and you will want your dominant hand free to control that bird!"

    Im right-handed so hold my slingshots in my left hand. My daughter is left handed so I have to remember to reverse everything when teaching her how to shoot slingshots, fly a bird etc.

    Like Obl1v1Aus has said, sometimes its the conditioning from us Righties teaching Lefties that throws up problems. The number of left handed falconers I know that fly 'right-handed' is testament to that.

    Yep, my buddy taught me how to play guitar in highschool, he forgot I was left handed. Strangely, after an hour or so he realized his mistake and strung it upside down so I could play it "correctly". It felt flat out wrong, so I play right
    handed, I feel that it makes me better to have the more dexterous hand on the fretboard.

    I'm the odd one. I'm left-handed. I hold my slingshot in my left hand though, BUT I hold bows with my right. I'm as far from normal as I can get(In so many ways). LOL!
