    Revolvers are basically already ambi guns anyways, you just have to change how you reload it depending on your strong hand.

    This sorta reminds me of some of the practical jokes we used to play on noobs in the army. Telling some new kid: Hey! Go find me a can of SQUELCH! or telling them they've got their right and left handed ammo pouches all messed up.... Just to watch them scramble to fix the uniform violation or see the kid go scrounging for something that doesn't exist...

    haha exsoldier, i remember that from when i was njrotc. Ive used my friends .357mag and its fine for me to use and all but i could see how it might become a hinderence if a quick reload was necessary in a life or death SD situation seeing as how the cylinder opens to my outside. I mean still not a big deal i just really wanted to have a lefty mag JUST to say i have one lol.

    I think if you practiced reloading, it would not be a factor.
    There are probably videos online to help you. I used the Ayoob revolver reloading video myself:

    "New York Reload" It's often faster to draw a second gun, rather than try to reload, especially if you're a southpaw with a revolver. That's why I carry guns in pairs.

    Actually the Colt SAA and all single action revolvers are truly left-handed. Sam Colt being left-handed designed it to keep the revolver in his strong hand while reloading.

    I never paid that any attention... Now I really 'need' one.

    I'm left handed; I carry my .357 on my left, but just had to learn to reload with my right. But, I think I kind of have the advantage of being ambidextrous when it comes to shooting.
