What is the Best way to load an M1 Garand left handed?

Same way you always do. Just watch your fingers. I am a lefty and I havent had any problems. You just have allow for the bolt to go under your thumb.

I did have a purple thumb once or twice. You learn real quick.

My fingers aren't really all that long and my thumb is short and stubby.

Helpful safety hint:

Do NOT use your penis.
