    Left handed CCW

    I have a Glock 19 and love it. I'm also thinking about getting a 26. I was wondering what other LEFT HANDERS carry. For the right hand people who don't know, we left handers have a problem with the safety's on most guns. That is why I choose the Glocks. I want a 9mm and the smallest possible for CCW
    Thanks

    I'm more of a lefty, but ambidextrous overall.

    I carry a .357mag, or my full size Springfield 1911 with ambi-safeties.

    I am a lefty and I usually carry a Glock 30. I have actually never had a problem with operating the controls on "right handed" guns. I carried a S&W 5906 as a duty weapon for 10 years. I used my left middle finger to release the magazine, and my left pointer finger for the slide release.

    In fact, I think it is easier releasing a mag this way than using my thumb, which I usually have to shift my grip to reach. I have never felt being in my "right mind" was a handicap.

    I'm left handed, but just learned to shoot right handed and carry right handed. the benefit is I am equally comfortable shooting with either hand. I personally prefer not to have a safety on a carry pistol, but the M&P has the option of one that is ambidextrous. I also have a HK USP that has a safety, but at some point I'm going to convert it to the no safety LEM variant.

    I have never tried to carry a Glock 26 but they seem a little thick to me. I like a single stack. I have a Walther PPS 9MM that I like a lot. I'm also a lefty and really like the ambi mag release on the PPS.

    I carry a Glock 19 mostly but also have a full size 1911 with ambi safety that I carry at times.

    Beretta 84BB Cheetah here. Ambi safety, I changed the mag release for left hand so all that is left for the right side is the slide release...oh well.

    Same here , My PPS is the most carried gun due to size and weight. Sometimes I will carry my Springfield Champion with ambi safety though.

    M&P is superb for us lefties. Glock Gen 4's are good too.

    Shoot both hands very well. Safety and mag release are the only issues to consider.

    My usual everyday car is a Ruger LCR 357, which I love. And I also have a Ruger P345 that I carry from time to time which has an ambidextrous safety and have never had an issue with either.

    Lefty here also, can't get comfortable with the IWB, so I carry a OWB holster @ 7 Oclock, with a light weight Columbia shirt out covering it,I too carry Glocks, a 17C stays in my range bag, and I carry a 26,19 and looking at the 36 for another carry weapon, since my Wife recieved her CWP, I have lost my 26.

    My XDM has proven to be a great lefty carry gun. There is no thumb safety to fumble with but having the grip safety along with the safety between my ears is sufficient for me. The mag release is ambidextrous. The short mag is great for IWB and the extended mag gives me more rounds on an OWB day. By far my favorite out of my arsenal.

    Lefty here too. For me it's either a Glock 26 or 17. When I've got to downsize, it's a Taurus TCP738. I have carried a 1911 with ambi safety in the far distant past. I prefer no safety on my carry guns.

    I carry a Glock 19 in a left-handed Brommeland Max-Con V. No problems.
