I'm left handed. Esthetics's are important for me when it comes to marker manipulation (handling). I find it incredible troubling that this idea isn't really taken into account when a marker or a marker accessories developed. The same goes with firearms. I like folding stocks yet I can't find one that folds to the left side of the marker or firearm. It's like, I'm forced to look for it to be custom made and that can be pretty expensive. Are their any left handed shooters that share my sentiments?

IMO the right side feed on Tippmanns favor lefties.  I've found that the only gun that I have that gives me any trouble is the Ruger Mark 2.  What a nightmare..............

BTW I'm a left-handed shooter

I guess most companies look at the bottom line and make everything the same to save cost. More folks are righties so that's what companies design for. Even though I'm left handed, I am right eye dominate and shoot right handed (lucky)

  The hopper on a Tippmann is exposed on the right side of cover shooting right-handed.  This favors shooting from  the left side

Well, my mom is dark skinned and she lives in a white country, so I guess she is.
