I would think 10% of the population still equates to 10% of shooters, I can’t see why an equivalent population of left handed people wouldn’t be shooters. There’s a much higher population of leftys that there are trans people, they get so much attention while we don’t.
I just went with the Bergara HMR 6.5 for my new build. The options in the shooting world for leftys are better than they’ve ever been in the past. Gen 5 glocks are a game changer for me on fast reloads, Benelli and Mossberg make left hand eject shotguns, and the commercial grade rifle options seem better than ever.
I agree, I have an SBE 2 and love it. The Tikka and Bergara are both great rifles. I just wish that Bergara made a few more caliber choices and that Tikka used AI mags or long enough mags to accommodate a longer handload. Things are definitely going in the right direction though.
