I am ambi also. I tend to shoot long guns better right handed which most are but in PB and with pistols in general right or left work just the same. It realy has it's advantages on the speedball field!

I'm normally a righty, but I have had a scar on the retina of my right eye which forced me to learn to shoot lefty. Small caliber guns...I just lean over the sights a little farther - no problem. Larger caliber...have to switch or it won't be pretty.

I don't run a remote line because I am constantly alternating hands during firefights.

I am right handed, but left eye dominant. When shooting around the left side of a bunker I use the same right handed grip, but switch the tank to my left shoulder. It took a bit to figure it out, but now seems natural.

I also shoot both, especially if I'm using a pump. It's fun to keep em guessing!

I'm left handed (sort of) as well but can shoot almost equally well with both hands. Now that you mention it, I seem to prefer shooting a pistol with my right hand, but I shift it over to line up with my left eye... strange. All in all, I'm really ambidextrous. I shoot, write, and use a fork in my left. But throw, bat, and do a lot of things with my right. I'm just messed up all around.
