    it seems quite a few of us shoot holding the slinger in the right hand, but I'm curious to know if this is an eye dominance thing, a handedness thing, or just preference.. most of us just accept that you hold the slinger with your left hand and your pecker with your right, that's the way God intende for sanitary reasons, but the rest of you (looking at your row 2 and 5) better be washing your damn hands..

    It's a strange situation for me...I eat left handed, shoot right handed, write left handed, shoot a bow right handed, can fence with either, throw left handed, and play the guitar right handed, my left eye is near sighted, my right is far sighted, and finally, my arms are actually longer than my legs.....seriously, got measured for a suit once........

    Well for me growing up even with toy bow an arrows they showed us to hold with are left hand.
    Also being right handed it's easier to fondle my balls I'd never get them in the pouch left handed.

    My brother is in the same boat, he also shoots right handed which convenient. Most everything else for him is Left or confused.. he played guitar right handed for three years before I decided he was left-handed, it was a sleight that just turned out to be true,,, then he bought a lefty and committed to progressing. I think you boys are just confused ..

    You are left handed but you hold your pouch in the left hand sling in the right is how I read it.

    For me, it's Right hand frame hold, pouch in my left.

    I do most things that involve both hands left handed (swing a bat, hockey stick, golf, lacross, swing an axe over my left shoulder). One handed sports or activities, I am Right handed (throw a ball, tennis, badminton, etc.)

    Write with my Right hand.

    Fork in Left hand, knife in right. But if I'm just using one utencil, I hold it right handed (whittling a fork or stick), eating soup etc.

    I was thinking the same thing. That would be a trick even for a season PFS shooter.
    I saw a Chinese guy with only one hand holding the pouch by his teeth on a video and he shoots better than I can with both hands. If anybody here can shoot left handed and hold the pouch left handed while shooting needs to post a video on exactly how that is accomplished.
    Inquiring minds want to know.... and I'm a bit curious myself.

    Yep. That's how most right eye dominate people normally shoot. I hold my revolvers in my right hand....most really need two hands and my slingshot in my left hand so I can aim with my dominate eye.

    We will of course need video proof.
    Me thinks somebody needs to change the multiple choices in the poll to ones that make some sense.
