    Left hand bushpig or similar

    Hi, trying to help setup a newbie with a rifle...unfortunately he's cack handed so thought I'd have a quick go on here before buying new.

    Anything sensible considered but looking for 6.5mm plus

    Cheers

    Unfortunately? Cack handed?
    Hardly endearing yourself to the lefty's on here.

    IIRC I have a LH Rem 700 SS 7-08, LSS model with a Laminate stock.

    I also have an ex 300 Rum LSS SS Rem LA with Laminate stock in exceptional condition, only fired 75 rounds, no barrel.

    Being a newbie is he absolutely sure he's a true-blue leftie?
    I'm left handed, do everything left handed and when I first started shooting as a young fella I naturally picked up a rifle left handed but my old man made me shoot right handed and now it's just natural (I can still shoot a leftie no worries too..) it didn't take long to get used to at all.
    I'm glad he did as there's so many more options out there for right handed shooters. Maybe get him to give it a go?
