thanks WD, I have ordered the savage .22 cal bolt action, 10 round clip. I also just bought a Rossi .410 single shot( big Christmas gift for this year), it has the safety mechanism on the left hand side. The only thing I don't like is that as soon as you say "left handed" the price increases about 50%.
That's one reason why I like the Marlin 336C in .30/30. You can add an extra hammer thumb piece that can go either lefty (like me) or righty when you mount a scope. (Recommend Weaver mounts - scope is elevated allowing the shooter to still use the original fixed sights.) I'm a left handed shooter (about the only thing I do left handed) and so is my youngest son. The only "real" difference is that the rounds load in the right side. After that, everything can be done left and/or right handed depending on the person using it. Also recommend Hornady's LeveRevolution rounds in 160 grain. You get .270 like performance out of a .30/30.
I've used the rifle and so have both of my sons to put deer in the freezer. It's a great all round brush and deer gun.
