Okay, I had to join the forum just to post this. Hope to contribute more if possible.

I am a righty, but I've spent a lot of time looking for this on my tech-challenged uncle's behalf. I've found that Taurus 24/7 G2 models are 100% ambidextrous. Mag release, slide release and safety lever all on both sides. He bought his .45 and I liked it so much I bought one too, in my preferred caliber, .40. We both carry these concealed comfortably (fullsize, not compact) and would recommend them to anyone.

If you prefer a weapon with an exposed hammer version of the 24/7, the 8xx series is also ambidextrous. I had a tough time deciding between the two, but opted for no hammer for less snagging.

Now the search continues for a decent 100% ambi/lefty .22LR...

I too just joined to post on this topic...
I'm a left hander and would love a gun specifically designed for left handers (including the ejection), but as most others, have learned to just deal with a right handed gun. I can say this though, many guns have safety or decocker, and/or magazine release on both sides. My Ruger P95 does as well. The only thing it doesn't have is the slide release (and of course left ejection). However, I never really considered it an issue, even though it would nice if it did, because I don't intend on ever having to release the slide with the slide release in an emergency. For one, I keep it chambered when it's beside my bed (actually keep it and the 45 on the other side of the bed chambered), so I don't need to even work the slide... but if I did need to, it would be faster just to grab it and jerk it back and release... If I'm just shooting, and need to reload, I just have the gun in my right hand when I work the slide release, then move it to my left hand. Not as quick, but the paper isn't attacking me.

Right hand or wrong hand? Left hand use isn’t a drawback! The single-action revolver is probably the best-designed handgun in the world for left hand use.If you are a single-action shooter and right handed, you are at a disadvantage! Folks used to joke that Sam Colt was left handed, yet he was long dead by the time the Single Action Army was invented.

There was a time when pistol manufacturers actually made pistols for southpaws. Any more most pistols, like Glocks, are pretty much ambidextrous and work for any kind of shooter. One pistol that sort of really fits the left profile is the old P-38 Mausers. These WW2 designed pistols eject to the left and the controls can be handled from either side. And they still make these handguns even today because they're so popular.

Hi, I'm new to this forum and new to my latest purchase...a Beretta U22 NEOS. I'm a lefty so I had to rule out a couple of fine pistols. The Beretta has the safety on both sides. It's up, out of the way, also. The mag release is set forward of the trigger guard and although on the wrong side, there is no chance of actuating it by accident...another plus. The grips are the same on both sides, but are substantial enough to be able to get a good hold without feeling like they might slip. It's a strange looking pistol with its unconventional grip angle, but it feels good to me. The price was better than all the offerings I found in its class. Oh yeah, the trigger kinda sucks...creep!

It's a fun gun and suits this left hand shooter just fine for my purposes.
