So I noticed I don't have to switch to my left hand to shoot on my left side and can just bring my right hand over to shoot. Is this normal for some people? :huh:

Ive seen a lot of people who cant shoot lefty do this but i think its better if you just learn to shoot left handed in the long run

Okay, I was just curious. Some people say just shoot for comfort but I'd want what's more effective. And not only that I can always practice. Haha. Sweet Avatar pic by the way.

if someone is running up close and you need to shoot quickly, shooting with your right is fine, but if youre snapping or laning, left is the way to go.

Switch hands, it will be more comfortable if you practice.

in a pinch what i have done if i have to play my bunker tight and can't switch is hold the frame with my right hand and use my left hand to pull the trigger.

I remember back in the day, even some of the pros used to do that... Can't really get away with it these days.

For rec, it doesn't really matter; but if you want to become competitive, it's best to learn to walk the trigger off-handed.

Using a gun that's been hardly maintained and tossed from person to person more than a village whore is hardly a fair way to compare the marker.

Some pros still do it and then the webcast mocks them. If you're just a recballer its fine, but I've found I'm a much better player and I have more fun since I learned to shoot lefty. If you can shoot lefty properly it makes playing the entire field so much easier.

If you want to get sponsored, present yourself as a mature adult, not a four year old with a crayon.

If you play psp 12.5, you don't really need to learn to "walk" the trigger. The hardest part of playing left handed is just lack of coordination, which just takes practice.

After you break out to the left side, you can always wrap around the right side of the bunker with your right hand occasionally- might throw your opponent off.

we always called shooting left side with right hand "goon handing".
There are 2 kinds of people in this world. Those who think they can and those who think they can't. both of them are right.

You can do it, the problem arises when you start running and shooting while doing it, having your left arm stretched like that will in my experience make your muzzle bounce more. But in a bunker in a pinch? sure why not.

if you slide while holding it in the wrong hand you can slap your gun on the ground, and potentially break something. Just take the time to learn it, do a few hand switching drills

This is why the first thing I tell noobs who want to stick around is work on your left hand before anything else.

It's easier to learn something you've never done than to correct bad habbits.

As a result, it didn't take me long to get use to my left.

Just keep practicing and you'll get the hang of it.

This, and my weak hand (right hand) slowly gets better, but it will always be comfier on your stronger side. Just work at it though! :tup:

This thread is full of 30 people saying the same thing...

If you shoot left side with your right hand you are a larger profile and more likely to get shot.
