A significant percentage of American gun owners are left handed. Other shooters are cross eye dominant and are right handed but use their left eye to shoot their guns. However, the vast majority of rifles are optimized for right-handed use, leaving left-handed and left-eyed users with few options.

AllTerra Arms is now stepping up to help fill this gap. They are known for making precision bolt-action rifles with their exclusive patented technology, and they have recently added left-handed rifles to their offerings for the American gun owners. All AllTerra Arms rifle models are available in the left-handed configurations such as their innovative Carbon Hunter Stock that has been redesigned for the southpaw shooter with a negative cheek comb and tilted palm swell to enhance your shooting form while managing recoil.

“Aside from engineering the bolt and safety to the other side of the gun, all of our patented technology is built into every left-handed rifle we build,” says AllTerra Arms' Founder, Drew Foster.

Other technologies included in these rifles are things such as AllTerra’s patented Bolt-to-Bore Alignment with a Dual-Lock Barrel Seat and .0005” machining tolerances to achieve exact rifle concentricity and bench-rest accuracy. The patented receiver design also delivers AllTerra's No-Fail Cycling when working the action, where relaxed tolerances are purposely engineered between the bolt and receiver when cycling. In addition to this, patented conical lugs engage and lock into a unique elliptical raceway, so the surfaces literally “self-clean” with every cycle and sends debris out of harm’s way when chambering cartridges. These features allow AllTerra to guarantee that their rifles will never jam or fail.

In addition to this, like all AllTerra Arms rifles, the left-handed models are backed by an accuracy guarantee that promises sub-1/2-inch 3-shot groups with premium factory ammo; sub-1/4-inch 3-shot groups with custom AllTerra Arms ammunition; and no significant change in accuracy when shooting different bullet weights.

AllTerra Arms is currently accepting orders for their rifles, with models starting at $5,605. More information on this is available at

Skills Check: Present Arms

We refer to the draw stroke as the presentation at Gunsite. It’s a better explanation than simply “drawing” the pistol, because it describes the act of presenting the pistol from the holster to the target or threat. In our “basic,” five-day pistol class we expect students to present the pistol and make hits on targets from 3 to 7 yards away in 1.5 seconds. Most students can do this in two or three days of training.
