This is a discussion on Pic's Of My New Toy within the General Firearm Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; Here is my new Savage Mark II BV with Mueller Scope. Going to take the Grandson squirrel and rabbit hunting this fall. So I needed ...
You need to send it back...the bolt is on the wrong side!!!!
JK, I am a right handed/left eye dominant. I shoot a right hand bolt left handed. Iprobably should buy "left" rifles, but I don't. LOL I shoot my SD gun right handed with my left eye...
Nice little gun. Just thought I would stick up for us lefties that every body says is weird for shooting that way. LOL

I am just as nice as anyone lets me be and can be just as mean as anyone makes me. - Quoted from Terryger, New member to our forum.
I pity the squirrels! I've only shot a Savage once but was very impressed with the Accu-Trigger plus they really have a reputation for accuracy. Looks like you're in for some good times with the grandson!
I too am a cross-dominant shooter and have always shot long guns left handed. I shoot pistols/revolvers right handed but aim with my left eye. The first left handed bolt rifle I ever bought took quite a while to override the muscle memory I had already developed over the years to quit reaching with my right hand to operate the bolt.
I just returned from the range and sighting in the scope. All I can say is I love this rifle. Shoots like a dream and the rifle is more accurate than I am. It is going to take some practice to get out of this rifle all it has to offer.

Here is my first target after sighting in the scope. 3/4" at 40 yds resting the fore end on a tool box with blanket on top. No the best rest but all I have at the moment. I am excited with what this rifle is capable of .
