    Re: Left-handed sextants

    Hi ,
    I never saw a left handed sextant but as a lefty I would prefer one.
    Strength, endurance and steadiness of my strong arm would be a benefit for
    me. But as so many things in a right handed world you adapt. If the sextant
    were to cost $500 more I would certainly adapt faster. If it were $50 more I
    would go for it. As with pistols and rifles which eject in front of your face
    it has certain dis- advantages, but in the interest of mass production and
    interchangeability notice that the armed forces don't offer you a choice.
