Left Handed Shooters

I am about to purchase my first handgun and I was wondering if there is a difference besides the magizne release for left hand and right hand shooters...Is there any weapons (semi-auto pistols) that are better suited for left hand shooters

left handed weapons

mrn84d,
there are plenty of ambidextrous handguns. I am right handed, so I will be of little help.

You might try this url: http://www.gunweek.com/2000/lefties.html

good luck

left handed weapon

Clint, I am right handed and my dominant eye is my left one. I have to keep my right eye shut while shooting or I miss by mile. Of course with my left eye sighting I only miss by a half mile. I have learned to keep both eyes open when trap shooting. Works pretty good now. Sometimes I just cloe em both & pray.
