Enjoying Community Sports

About a year ago, I started working really hard to get my family more active. We started spending a lot of time going through and enjoying community activities, and it was really fun to see how much better our lives were. I could tell that all of us were losing weight, having more fun, and really living it up. I felt great, and I could tell that I was becoming a better parent because of things like community sports and recreation programs. This blog is all about getting out there, having a great time, and really enjoying your life with the help of physical activity.

Things That You'Ll Like About A Left-Handed Hunting Rifle

If you're left-handed, you'll often find that some everyday objects are challenging to use because they're designed for right-handed individuals. Some pairs of scissors, for example, are more comfortable in the right hand — meaning that you either face discomfort when using them with your left hand or some degree of difficulty to use your right hand. When it comes to using a hunting rifle, you'll generally find that most rifles are designed for those who are right-handed. It's even possible that you might have learned to hunt with such a firearm. If you're shopping for a new rifle, look for a left-handed model. Here are some things to like about it.

The Bolt

When you need to work the bolt on a hunting rifle, you'll generally keep your front hand in place while you remove your back hand from the stock to grab the bolt. If you're a left-handed hunter who is using a gun designed for right-handed people, this task can be challenging. Because you're likely using the gun with your right hand forward, this will mean that the bolt is close to your face, rather than on the opposite side. The result is that working the bolt quickly and easily is awkward. With a left-handed rifle, the bolt will be on the opposite side of the gun, making using it more natural.

The Ejection Port

After you fire your rifle, the spent cartridge ejects through the ejection port. Generally, the port is on the same side of the gun as the bolt. For a right-handed hunter, this means that the port is on the right side of the gun. If you're left-handed and using a conventional rifle, the ejection port will be next to your face. This means that the spent cartridge could make contact with you before it falls to the ground — something that is distracting and highly unpleasant. On a left-handed rifle, the port is on the opposite side so that the cartridges will fly harmlessly away from your upper body.

The Stock

Although the stocks of some hunting rifles are ambidextrous, you'll occasionally come across a firearm that has a stock designed for right-handed people. While you might be able to handle the gun as a left-handed person, it may not be nearly as comfortable as you'd like. For example, the shape of the stock might put excess pressure on certain parts of your back hand, perhaps leading to a blister. When you buy a left-handed rifle, you'll find that that stock is ergonomically shaped to support how you handle it.
