Iím 100% lefty and I own a P226, an SP2022 (and now a P365!).

Not once have I had a problem with either the mag releases, the decocker or the slide release on the P226 and SP2022.

There arenít a whole lot of guns that are set up ambi. Iíve learned to use my middle finger on the mag release and my index finger on the decocker and slide release. Itís become habit.

I recently picked up by SILs M&P 9c thatís set up lefty and it bothered the hell out of me. I want all my guns to be set up the same, so itís natural no matter what gun I pick up. Having some one way and more another is confusing. I donít mind an ambi safety, but everything else on my guns is set up for a righty.

Another advantage of using the left index finger on the slide release and decocker is that now you know it is definitely not on the trigger.

I feel that's the best thing about being left handed. I am getting really used to using my index finger so that it's NOT on the trigger.

I have purchased the Springfield and the GSG (even though the GSG is not ambi. Also requesting conversation on recommendations for other potential guns.

Beretta 92x
Beretta APX
Canik TP9 SF Elite (not ambi)
Canik TP9 SFX
CZ Shadow 2 Black & Blue
FN FNX45
✅ GSG Firefly
HK VP9
Sig Sauer Compact P229 or P320
Sig Sauer P320 X-Five Legion
✅ Springfield Armory XD-M Elite
Walther PK380
Walther PPQ Q5 Match
You may wish to add the HK45 Tactical to that list. Full ambi on it and depending on the variant, it will come with the LEM trigger.
