Kentucky Left Hand

The Ultimate Paintball Glossary

Shooting right-handed out the left side of your bunker.

Generally, a no-no when shooting straight downfield and not merely sighting up after shooting cross-field. A big no-no. Learn to shoot switch. However, some situations call for this gun hold for tactical purposes. If for instance, you have two opponents bearing down on you from both sides of a long bunker such as a snake, you may want to lean back and post up left allowing yourself to quickly shoot right without changing hands. 

Why is KLH a no-no? It’s considered bad form. It does often leave much of your body exposed if you shoot right-handed out the left side of the bunker. It can be minimized if you shoot with a 50ci 4500psi round (stubby) tank.
