You can get guns with safeties on both sides of the gun. You can also get magazine releases on both sides of pistols now too. If you're set on a pistol versus a revolver, I wouldn't skimp because your life may someday depend on it. Ejection is another matter. Typical pistols eject to the right. For a left-hander, this ejection could be in their face. I'm right-handed, but I'm actually a better shot left-handed, at least in league.

Thanks.

I think the 4-10 shells will be OK also.
They are not faded, cracked, or have any rust on the ends.
I don't see any reason why they would be unsafe to use. But thought I should ask in case there was something I didn't know to look for.

I didn't think about the ejection, you are right, it will be right in her face.

I wonder if it might be better to go with a revolver...

l shoot lefty as well as I shoot righty and have never been bothered by where the cases go. My best advice is to find a gun that feels good in your hands. Go to a gun store that rents weapons and try out lots of them. I still love my Hi Point 45 because it goes bang every time I squeeze the trigger and I can afford to shoot it. Others have more expensive tastes.

I am a Glock person, among other brands. A few things I like to add here:
  1. You can add a 4th safety to Glocks just by replacing a few parts. A Glock armorer will charge about $75 including parts, or you can do it yourself for about half the price. Look up SliderLock on Google to see what it looks like. I've done this to all my Glocks except one which I'm keeping pristine.
  2. Glocks eject everywhere. There's no predicting where a empty (hot) shell will land. I've had them land on my hat, hit me in the face, etc.
  3. If I had the money, I would invest in nite sites for all my guns. I currently have one Glock with nite sites, and two Sigs, a P229 and a GSR1911.

When I was in the army we had the rifle matches and they used AR style rifles. The teams from various bases shot those out to 600 yards. But, yes, they were heavily worked on. And I think they had special ammo, too.
