You need a left handed bow if you are a lefty. That means the bow is in your right hand and you pull with your left. I can shoot my son's right handed bow with the bow in my right hand and pull with my left, and be pretty accurate, however I do not reccomend it. His bow is only set at 36 lbs and if I tork it (twist it) it won't pop my arm and leave a nasty mark. It's a cool trick, but it's not meant to be that way. Get a lefty. If your going to stick with that bow and have the skills to do so, than please hold it with your left hand and pull back with your right. My brother is left handed and he shoots like that. He can use a right handed glove and bat right handed too though. If that's you than go for it. With any bow, if you group arrows consistantly to the left or right, or up or down, just adjust your sight on the bow. Remeber if you miss left, move the sight right. If you miss up, move the sight down. Good luck. Don't be embarressed to go to a shop and ask for help adjusting your bow. If they act arrogent, go somewhere else. I like Bowie Outfitters in Baton Rouge, Chags in Metairie, and Bayou Bow Hunters in Lafayette. All 3 of those shops have real knowledgable people that won't look down on you and will help you progress.
