Default Anyone trying to sell a youth model rifle?

Looking for either a .243 or 7-08 for my girls. To make matters more interesting, my oldest daughter is left handed and my youngest daughter is right handed.

I can never get off easy

I am left handed and been shooting right handed for years so they will work if yOu find a good right handed gun. She will get used to it.

Default youth rifles

I'm with countryjwh, my son is lefthanded but has used a right handed gun all his life and is good with it. Just start them out with it and it will be natural after a little practice

Default Left handed

Sorry Country I misunderstood you. Didn't strike a nerve did I. Still say that is you start them off one way they will be proficient from whatever side right or left. A lot of people learn to shoot from both sides.

I just bought my daughter a Mossberg Terk 243 with a Barska 3x9x40 scope from Mike's for $299. So far it seems to be a fairly decent youth rifle and alot lighter than the Rossi's. It is also a bolt action.

Same here. All my guns are right handed, but since I'm left handed and more importantly left eye dominant; I shoot shoot left handed. Us lefties have all sorts of tricks to adjust to a right handed world with little problems.
