Left Hand Wheel Guns?

After doing a simple google search this is the only site that pops up with left hand wheel guns. Welcome to Charter Arms

Do any of the big dogs make left hand models?

I just remembered that the new S&W bodyguard revolver has the cylinder release on top making it ambi. I think the control for the laser is set up for right handers though. May want to look at it.

My BIL is left handed and shoots/carries the SP101. I never even noticed how he opens it up. His semi-automatics are switched over for left handed use.

Yep the new BG 38 does have the ambi cylinder release and I like it, but I really liked the LCRs trigger and houge grips. I'm leaning towards the LCR for my new EDC, just need alot of practice on reloading them right.

Cool vid but compare that same pistol to someone who shoots right handed. Its going to be way faster. I want one that opens up for a left as well as a release switch.

Personally, I don't see any advantage for a left handed revolver. The simple fact is that it normally takes two hands to reload a revolver at speed, how you use those hands is simply a matter of training.

I'll also note that the traditionally right handed revolver may actually prove to be advantageous for a Lefty simply because they'll be using their dominant hand to load the cylinder, meaning less fumbling which is a real time killer if you're feeding them in one at a time.
