I have used right handed guns my whole life--I only rcently aquired a left handed 1100 for skeet and trap. I learned to shoot skeet with a RH 870. I have never felt hindered by RH guns when hunting (even bolt actions) since the gun is carried fully loaded and only the safety has to ber manipulated and the goal is the firing of a single shot. I bought a RH Beretta 1201 FP as and HD gun and could not feel comfortable of my ability to use it LH in an extreme situation, I practiced quite a bit but in the end I sold it to my brother (who shoots right) and bought a Mossy with a tang safety. I just feel that in a high pressure situation (HD use) I wanted a simple and familiar order of arms, even if it means giving up some raw performance (auto's shoot faster).
