Re: left handed a5

Still wishing for one though, just for the charging handle to be on the right, as I'm not used to pulling it with my left hand (still a right-handed person), and I still like where the hopper, cyclone, and QEPH are now. It's probably going to be a design problem if this project does get undertaken by Tippmann.

I Look At Being Left Handed As Being Better Than All The Rest !

LMAO...

i wont hate on you lefties, but i always found it funny...the stubborn lefties of course...seeing them on the Rifle Range shooting the good 'ol M16 which was made to be ambidextrious, but the "brass assist" is obviously on the right side of the rifle and pushes the brass away from the shooter-the lefties would just lay there in the prone, shooting away, covering their arms and sometimes face/neck with some nice hot brass. is this really funny? i guess not, but leave it to a stubborn ass Marine to not want to learn something new. and by the way-a 5.56 casing-is friggin hot when it pops out the ejection port-more than a second on bare skin and youll have a sweet 5.56 shaped burn!

i would say though, in the spirit of this thread-that the best i have seen would be the Q Loader like other OGers have said-its not cheap, but you either fork over the cash if the hopper really bothers you that much, or a little Vitamin S so you can suck it up!

if i was left handed and i didnt want to shoot right handed, i would use the Q hands down


oh and how comes no one has mentioned a right handed shooter hitting a right hand corner? you going to pie the corner right handed? i guess if you're an idiot and you want to expose your entire body, sure. NO you switch hands as you hit the corner so that you can peak the corner with the barrel of your marker while keeping the majority of your body behind cover. common sense.

Re: left handed a5

I use center feed guns like my milsim ion.. you learn to use both hands to snap. i find that people are lazy and dont wanna work at getting better, or expanding skill sets. so they expend energy instead to ***** and moan. *rolls eyes* Evolution baby. Adapt or die

Re: left handed a5

I was born a lefty! I have been switching hands to fire my marker since I picked it up 4 years ago. This season with the addition of a green targeting laser (not a green dot), it really doesn't matter which hand I use to fire.
Utilize what was given to you, learn to shoot with both and become a better player by being able to adapt as Wes just said. I will admit, I never really sight anyway, more of a ball watcher. With the exception of this year, have normally been a suppressor for the team so it didn't matter.
I figure since I am a lefty, I will adapt to this goofy world and be a more versatile player.

Re: left handed a5

Well, my issue is that I was born right-handed but an left-eye dominant. As a child, I tried to learn how to shoot [dad/range] but couldn't hit crap. I looked at him and said "let me try something" and switched to left handed. Bullseye every time.

So, all of my long arms [except my 'gifted' Hawken] and my archery gear is either made to be, or fired left-handed. Pistols are done right-handed though.

I don't find it to be too much a problem though...but with the feed of the A5, it was an issue for me. That's why I rigged the Warp feed onto mine...and again on my SP1. Clear line of sight from left-to-right.

Re: left handed a5

I am a lefty and have learned to adapt. However I am thinking of doing a Q-loader down the right side rails on my 416 shroud. I just don't want to make it too front heavy.

My next marker will probably be this though!

NEW T68 Matador Paintball Guns

Then add this.....

RAP4 Box Magazine With Nautilus Drive

For those who don't want to clicky clicky. It is RAP4's T68 mag fed M-4 style marker and adding the 250 round Box Mag! You could have the best of both worlds easily. 18 round mags for limited capacity and 250 rounds for when you need to be a heavy! It is a little pricey at like $700 but it puts the hopper in the dead space below the gun. Out of sight line even for us lefties!
