    Sea dog pretty much summed it up
    im a righty but shoot lefty cause of my dominate eye. all my guns are right and i have no problems with accuracy i also shoot a bow lefty but its a lefty. I know for my self when i was younger i shot a shotgun with slugs and was my first real gun to shoot and it casue me to flinch and didnt have luck with accuracy with rifles because i would anticipate the recoil and flinch even with 22s till i finnally just put my mind to it and the practice and eventuallly the flinching stopped

    By the way, I wish I had a dollar for getting my tail beat from some South Paw!

    Once you shoot it for awhile, you will think nothing of it! Kinda like driving in another Country where they build cars with the steering wheel and drive on the wrong side of the road

    You'll be fine, trust me!

    i dont think shooting a left handed gun right handed or a right handed gun left handed effects accuracy. its all the shooter. your sights could be off. you could be flinching or jerking or something along those lines which would effect its shooting.

    You should get an adult to help you decide, but most shooting instructors recommend that you shoot based on your dominant eye rather than your dominant hand. If you are right eye dominant, shoot right handed; left eye dominant shoot left handed. Your hands will adjust and the younger you are, the easier it is to learn to shoot cross-handed. The aim could be a separate problem. You might need to adjust your sites, but you should get someone who knows how to shoot to make sure your form is good and you aren't flinching, jerking or doing something else wrong. Then adjust your sites. Be safe and have fun shooting.
