start playing every game left handed, after so many weeks or months you should be able to shoot either handed with no preferance. This is what I did it was akward at first but you will adapt.

When it comes to speedball I am iffy when it comes to being right handed but with my pump I am fine using both hands.

Do whatever pleases you but I prefer the "serving tea method" whenever I'm shooting on the opposite side I usually shoot on.

The stock/rear facing tank is exactly what gets in the way of that, without either you're able to play right handed out both sides of the bunker without much problem (as you said, keeping the left arm in while moving out the left side is easy to do)

If you had a stock or rear facing tank, you wouldn't be able to bring the gun in as close (at least how I visualize it, you bring the marker in a little closer when shooting from the left, or play tighter due to lack of tank/stock) and therefore it would be a little harder to shoot switch while still using the right hand as the firing hand. (Not impossible, but opens up some interesting positions)
Fast is fine, accuracy is final.

For me it was all about angles. You can get better angles shooting ambidextrously. I would just hold the gun while watching TV or some other passive activity. I noticed my play got much better when I was able to switch hands on the fly.

Bunker someone running left side of their bunker while keeping the marker in right hand. Now re-do that holding it in the left, which was easier?
Now redo that running to back corner and shooting.

Recball it does not matter if youīre good in other things, but in speedball itīs pretty mandatory.

I donīt really think about it (or shooting in general) anymore, itīs all muscle memory now.
You're on an internet forum.
Every first post is a cry for attention.

I just got a stock for my phantom. No I understand why I need to switch hands. Without the stock, I think it can be worked so as not to increase the profile.

You will get better at switching hands over time. I used to suck at it but now I'm pretty good. In speedball it helps a lot. I shoot out lots of people because they don't switch hands. If you never work on it, you will never get good at it. This whole year ive been concentrating on my play style and working on getting better at switching hands, snap shooting, posting, laning, running and gunning. It does help to practice at your home but it's way better to do it at the field when everyone's shooting at you.
