I see Bergara is making a left handed HMR. Has anyone seen a Tikka CTRx in left hand ? I may be selling my unused Bergara HMR 6.5 Creed to get a lefty. I am thinking about the 6 mm Creed.

In Catholic school we were all taught left handed people are all in cahoots with the devil!!

But seriously I always thought the Ruger #1 rifles were always a good choice, because they could be used by someone of either persuasion. Hold resale value, built solidly, and look pretty cool to me.

Or you could start with one of these and just go nuts.

I don't think you can get a left hand CTR in the US.
That is the answer that makes sense. At some point they may import them. I will think about keeping my right handed Bergara HMR since it will be fired from prone or on the bench anyway.

Yeah, i havent seen a lefty CTR either. Not that id want one. There are more benefits to using a right handed, especially a precision bolt gun like the CTR, where you would be shooting it off the bench or other supported position. IE: bipod etc..
 
I am a lefty and I wouldn't know how to shoot a left handed bolt gun.

Funny, I'm trying to sell my CTR 6.5CM for a Bergara. :cool:

Kruelj, i saw a really nice Bergara at a shop lastnight. It was a beauty. Some are accuracy tested and labeled differently if they shoot better than others. This was one such rifle. Had a label on it ".408", so its a guaranteed shooter. Appeared to be cerakoated sniper gray with a dark dray and black stock. Pretty sweet rifle.

I think the mandatory use of a lefty rifle is for a hunting rifle. To minimize fumbling while doing manipulation in the field and enhancing safety. Using the right handed bolt for my uses , prone or supported bench , the right hand is fine.

Muzzle loaders don't care left or right, they don't mind a little boarding house reach.
