My grandparents (on my father’s side) were Hungarian, and very domineering and adamant about certain things.
When they discovered i was left-handed, they apparently wanted to force me to switch. My mother, however, put her foot down and told them to take a hike.
As it is, my “handedness” is all over the place.

I haven’t fired a gun since i was in my teens, but when firing a rifle or a shotgun, i rest the stock on my left shoulder. I think that makes me left-handed? I’ve never fired a pistol, but i would use my right hand for that.
