      I broke down and bought the pink ATG when M's had their 50% off coupon. I was so excited to lea what all the hype was about.

      Can I just say that this gun was really designed for right handed people. I'm a lefty and am very ambidextrous, have been my whole life. Lefties have to lea to function in a right-handed world. No biggie. Personally, I think it is an asset to be able to use both hands very easily.

      Anywho…..the way the tape sits on the little roller bar is off-center to the left. So, as a lefty, this puts the tape away from you. A right handed person can see where the tape is going quite easily. All of this means that I have to use my right hand with the gun. Again, no biggie, but a little bit of a bummer.

        I am a lefty too Lisa and you just nailed what is wrong with the gun for me! I do get frustrated 'cause I can't quite tell where the tape is going!! And I am 100% left handed, not even sure why I have a right hand!! I keep a Herma roller around for when I need precise application and otherwise the ATG works fine.

Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

          LOL! The right hand is to keep you balanced and from tipping over! ROFL!!

            i'm a lefty too, and when i got it, i trained myself to use it in my right hand. i still love it, and i can use it quite well in my right hand.
            it does take some getting used to, but you'll be fine, because you're ambidexturous, like me 🙂

                I'm a 100% lefty too, but after a little practice I'm fine with using the ATG lefthanded.

                  I have the same problem. If the tape were centered instead off to the side, it wouldn't be a problem. It is annoying, but I do like it. I've had to restring the tape a couple of times before I finally succumbed to the fact that it is easier to use with my right hand.

                    Hey I am a lefty too. Glad to read this because I have to think over this. I was considering the gun so for now I'll keep considering it

                    #83046

                    I'm glad you are at least able to use it. I love mine but I'm also right handed – never occurred to me that a lefty would have a hard time with it.

                      Well, you know what they say left handed people are in their right minds! Which makes me in my wrong mind. Explains a lot – that & my grandparents were cousins!
