Left handed kids

What do you guys let left handed kids shooot for a shotgun. My middle boy is about to be 7 and he has shot a single shot .410 and single shot 22 magnum with no problems but would like to get him a youth 20 gauge. Do most lefties just shoot a right handed pump or auto and let shells fly across them or do they shoot bottom eject bps or 37's or o/u's. Stoeger makes a youth model 20 gauge over and under for about 350 that seems decent for a kid. Just looking for anyone else's opnions or experience. Thanks.

My son is a left handed shooter and he shoots a 20GA 870 and 20GA auto (both right handed guns) without any problems.

Lefty
I am a lefty. I did not even now they made left handed guns until I was around 18. The only gun I own now that is left handed it my remington 700. All of my other rifles and shotguns are right handed guns and I have never had any problems with shells or bullets hitting me. I shoot an SKS and Rem. 870 12 and 20 guage. You can buy a left handed gun, but it is perfectly possible to hunt and be successful as a lefty with a right handed guns. I can honestly say I have killed far more animals with right handed guns than I have with my one left handed gun. Good Luck. By the way my little girl is a lefty also. She shoots a right handed 22 bolt action for now.

he will be ok
Im a lefty as well. When i was a kid I shot a Remmington 1100 20 guage. graduated from that to a 12 guage same gun. I do shoot a left handed shotgun now but that is only because the 1100's only shoot 2 3/4 and i wanted something more so i figured while i was at it why not spoil myself. After having it for 3 years now I am still more comfortable loading shells into a right handed rem 1100 probably from using that gun for so long. Anyway, the only other hunting device i own that is catered to the left hand is a bow. The little guy can adapt and overcome.

I'm a lefty. I shoot a mossberg youth 20 gauge with an extended stock to fit my size. The shells just fly over my arm. Great gun too.I use it for hunting woodies in the basin.
