Being a left-handed shooter, almost the entire gun world is very prejudicial against us "south-paws", but I have learned to adapt to this as there are just too many right-handed guns not to own. I say if it works for you even though it may be unconventional, nothing wrong with it. Actually, I don't think twice about using the controls on any gun I own in an unconventional manner. At least you have the capability to switch it to the other side if you choose to...
Congratulations on your recent acquisition, you will most certainly enjoy it!!!
