Can a left handed person use a right handed gun?
no not really but it is possible :p Left handed people use "right handed" guns all the time since there are very few left handed guns. Most of the issues are related to magazine release, slide stop, safety, and ejection....but some guns have a left hand oriented grip or stock. What type of gun are we talking about? What type of shooting sport?

Who gets to first base first - left or right handed batter?
Asked in Bruce Lee
Was Bruce Lee left-handed or right-handed?
From my analyzes, Bruce Lee was a right-handed. Bruce Lee's right biceps were 0.5 inches larger than his left. And his right forearm was .05 inches larger than his left. (Age: 24) Source: Bruce Lee: The Art of Expressing The Human Body compiled and edited by: John Little page 41 This is a very left brained answer. It is obvious that he is ambidextrous, which ultimately means that he is left handed, because he fights left- handed most of the time but then switches. Left handers have better connection between the two spheres of the brain an so ambidextrousness is primarily in lefties. Jimmy Hendrix who coincidentally shares the same birthday as Lee was lefty, but was able to play guitar both left handed and right handed. Lee's primary pose is left handed with his left hand in the back and his right hand is in the front. This is a left handed posture. From a right brained perspective (watching what he is doing) he would appear to be left handed. Not to mention that his whole theme was to not be restricted by tradition which is more of a left-handed or right brained perspective.
Asked in Statistics, Probability
What are the odds of a left-handed person meeting another left-handed person?
There are plenty of left handed people, so if you are left handed you'll probably meet another left handed person at some point. Approximately 10% of the population of the United States is left-handed. That means that of every encounter between two people, one in ten will include at least on left-handed person. To find out how many will be between two left-handed people, you multiply 10% by 10%, you get 1%, or one in 100, so the odds of a left-handed person meeting another left-handed person are 1 in 100. Your question doesn't specify "meeting for the first time"; encountering someone you already know changes things a little, since left-handedness can run in families. Also, those odds don't include meetings with more than two people, or research into facts such as there being left-handed conventions, or left-handed baseball pitchers tending to know one another. That's probably not a big deal, though, and there may be sports or occupations that favor right-handers, which balance things out.
Asked in Religion & Spirituality
Is GOD right-handed?
God created "right-handed" and "left-handed", just as he created time, but these things were for us, humans. God isn't stereotyped into "right-" or "left-" handed, he created these things, and since he is a spirit, he is GOD, he may not even have "hands" , and if he had, he would be able to use them both the same, both way better than humans.

How do you paint you right hand?
Asked in Baseball
Why are there no left-handed throwing catchers in baseball?
A left-handed throwing catcher would have a harder time throwing runners out at third, since it's easier to throw across your body, a right hander to his left, and a left hander to his right. This is the same reason that there are no left handed second basemen, shortstops, or third basemen, since their most common throw (to first base) is to their left. A left handed catcher would have an easier throw trying to pick a runner off first. Also, since most batters hit right handed, a left handed catcher would more commonly find the batter slightly in his way as he tried to throw down to second.

Asked in Golf
Why when there are many good left handed batsmen in cricket so few top left handed golfers?
This is a very good question. There is no real reason for it, but the explanation I can offer you is, 10-15 years ago, left handed clubs were rare, especially for juniors, that's why on tour at the minute there are very few left handed players. Today, left handed clubs are still rare and don't come in all the options you would find in right handed clubs, simply because there is not a big enough market. Junior clubs are also very rare in left hand. You will notice a cricket bat can be used by either a right or left handed player, so when a player picks up a bat for the first time, they will use whichever orientation feels most natural. A golf club can only be used one way. A couple of interesting side notes would be, Phil Mickelson writes right handed, but plays left handed and when Tiger Woods picked up a club for the first time he swung left handed as he was mirroring his father Earl Woods.
Asked in Baseball
What are the advantages of being a left-handed baseball player?
Generally speaking, lefties have a batting advantage against right handed pitchers, and of course, there are more right handed pitchers than lefties. Also, left handed batters are closer to first base and have a slight time advantage in reaching first base after a hit. Left handed pitchers have an advantage in being able to watch a first base runner attempting to steal second.

Where can you get left handed field hockey sticks from?
Who holds the MLB career record for wins by a left handed pitcher?
Asked in Field Hockey
Is there a difference between right- and left- handed field hockey sticks?
Yes. Right-handed sticks are by far the most common, and are the only ones permitted by rule. They have the flat side on the left side when the hook is facing away from the body, meaning they are used in a right-handed fashion. Left-handed sticks are virtually nonexistent (because they are illegal for use and so are not not worth the time to make or use), but can be found in some specialised places. They are the mirror image of right-handed sticks.
