I saw one on swamp people on history channel yesterday. Looked like a marlin.
i think that was a reverse negative.
Most likely....especially since they are shown with a different gun everytime it swaps from a normal shot to a close up....just shows how on top of it they are. Good show though

A tube fed bottom eject 22 would even work. Just need something she can shoot. My tube fed is right side eject as are the other tube fed 22s we have and all of our bolt action 22s are right handed also. Poor kid is right handed but left eye dominate and shoots left handed. Lil Hammer is the same way.

Our problem come in when she starts shootin comp with it in the spring on a bench. Grrrr I never realized till now how difficult leftys have it in finding things to accomidate them.

Do you guys have a 10/22? i saw a brass delfector a long time ago made for leftys for one. I dont think it would be too hard for me to make one out of some aluminum stock. Basically it attached to the holes tapped in the reciever for a scope and went down over the ejection port.

No we don't. My cousin who is a lefty just said we can borrow his lever actin clip fed but since she has never shot a lever action I don't know how quick she will be on the reloading part but I guess we will see and just keep looking for something she can use in comp starting in the spring.

Is teaching her to shoot right handed out of the question? I'm left handed but have never shot left handed always have shot right handed.

She is almost legally blind in her right eye and is a much better shot left handed. She is naturally right handed but when you watch her shoot she looks like shooting left handed is as natural for her as someone that is right handed does shooting right handed.

The Savage Left-handed 22lr are pretty good. Here is mine that was recently re-barreled by mstrophyhunter on this forum. It shot pretty well as a stock MarkII-GL, but I wanted something a little different. ....Sorry, I just realized you asked about semi-autos. A bolt can be operated pretty fast with some practice.
