How left-hand friendly are glocks? Before you start shooting, the boards search feature sucks(crippled).

Very. A lefty doesnt suffer any ergonomic disadvantage with a glock. The mag realease is BETTER accomplished with the index finger of the shooting left hand, rather than the thumb of the right hand. For the slide release you can used the side of your left index finger or the slide-over-hand method.

Thank you very much.

I am a lefty and carry a G19.

Glocks are very lefty friendly. The mag release is very easy to use with the trigger finger, and I don't use the slide release anyway as I prefer the "slingshot" method.

Another satisfied lefty. I use my middle finger to hit mag release & use slingshot method. I have trouble useing my thumb when shooting right handed & couln't imagine doing it all the time. I say leftys have it better.

Lefty with a G23 here. No problems.

Crimson Trace Lasers, however, persent a bit more of a challenge, but I just had to adjust from high-thumb to lower-thumb.

Me too. 26 and 19, no trouble.

Lefty here who's owned 17, 19, 20, 29, and 35 - never had a problem at all. The extended mag release is a little uncomfortable on the G35, but the standard one is only like $6 from Top Glock.
