ANSWER ONLY IF YOU ARE LEFT HANDED!!!!!!! (if your not left handed you will ruin the poll!)

i cant stand it when my hopper gets in my line of sight. I dont care what any one say's I HATE IT and i would actually spend alot of money on it to!! So come on all you leftys!! lets ban together and STAND UP for the left handed society. And for those of you left handers out their who dont really care if the hopper is on the right (i mean if you have really thought about it and it really does not matter to you), put zero on the poll and tell us why as long as you are a lefty!  

Understand my goal is to show if Tippmann should make left handed guns or not. it really does not matter if they put them on stock because i will get one some how!!!

You do know that Tippmann's and a few select Spyders amidst other extreme low ends have a feedneck that is not a centerfeed right?

I shoot left and have never had a problem other than Cockers.  In fact I'll go so far as to say that an a-5 is better for lefties.

Contrary to what many believe a left hander should play the right side of the field which forces right hander to shoot left handed against you.

I feel that left handed has an advantage as far as profile.

When a right hander tucks, the hopper will jut out the side(assuming they dont compensate), but a lefty the hopper is within the body.

I like my x-7.  because of the low profile hopper and the fact that it does not get in the way ot the sights of the gun because it is flat on one side. 

I dont agree with the whole lefties should play the right side because it is quicker to move your sights to the right then to the left.

Hmmm.  The field of fire for a left hander is centered on 9 to 12 o'clock.  I'm curious how you come to this conclusion.

OS is a lefty maybe he'll chime in.

Because if you are on the right side and hiding behind a bunker.  you would have to shoot over the right side of the bunker.  because if you shoot on the left side of the bunker you are exposing yourself to the whole left side of the playing field.  i dont know about you but if you are a lefty i would rather pop up on the left side of the bunker because i could stick my gun up first and have accurate fire.  (trust me i do it for a living)  but if anyone else has a different idea please enlighten me because i am new to the sport and absolutely had a blast the first time i went out and played.  i loved it soooo much i went and bought me a 300 dollar paintgun. hahaha

You do it for a living and you're new to the sport?

Sounds to me like all you're doing is covering the tape line from the back.  In doing this you're not helping to cover the middle of the field as effectively as you could.

If you play the right tape you will be at the same disadvantage as a right hander countering you down the tape line(he must shoot left-handed).  From the right side, if you are playing angles across the field, which there should be alot more than just playing the tape and will be more helpful to your team, you will have an advantage over right handers because they have to shoot left-handed to counter you.

Give it a try

I'm left handed, but this doesn't really apply to me, since I've been shooting righty, ever since I learned how to pull a trigger. Problem solved.

Problem worse is more like it. You need to aim with your dominant eye.

I wouldn't spend any more then $10 for a lefty gun, i been shootin real guns since i was younger and some lefty guns are a hassle, easy to just shoot lefty with a righty gun especially in paintball you don't have to worry about hot brass hitting you.

Wouldn't the logical thing to do be learn how to shoot with both hands like most paintballers?

Easier said than done for nubs like us Jet P.  I shoot goofy-foot but it works for me.  I always trigger with my right hand whether I'm shooting left or right.  It's actually pretty fast to switch that way.

Negative. Despite being left handed, I am right eye dominant, so 'Problem solved' still stands.

Will you please READ before posting? USAF said:

 He is refering to other cheap guns without going into name specifics. However even if he flat out said "Tippmanns are low end guns" He'd be right...because Low End isn't an insult. Low/High end refers to the overall level of technology and engineering. A Tippmann is extremely well designed to work simply without a ton of tiny bits and pieces. Thus Tippmanns are low end markers.

And if anyone is in a position to call a gun high or low end it would be him...as he works for Tippmann.

Same here.  Left-handed, right-eyed.  Shoot rifles (and bows) right-handed.  Pistols confuse me.

To OP:  In addition to vertical feed guns, there used to be a variety of guns that had left feeds, and you could use those old bodies.  Old powerfeed-left bodies for Automags, for instance, would work with newer valves, giving you a left-handed fancy new Automag.
