You shoot with your left hand. When your on the right side you shoot with your right hand, this way you have a better chance at getting then ball in and getting fouled. The trick that always worked for me is that when your going up for a layup on the left side pretend there is a string connected to your left hand and left knee.

How do you get the layup right the first time?

You cannot master the layup upon your first attempt. Layups are mastered after years and years of practice. The first year will help you get the basics down; the second year will help you perfect the right or left handed layup; the third, fourth, and fifth years will help you with layups from many different angles; and the sixth year and beyond will help you with the opposite handed layup.

How do you shoot the basketball correctly if you shoot with your left hand?

Contrary to what everyone believes, there is no "correct" way to shoot a basketball. This goes for left handed and right handed people. Whatever way works for you is the correct way. First, put your left foot slightly forward (ahead of your right) and make sure your feet are shoulder width apart. Then have your shooting hand (in your case your left) behind the ball [in front of your face] and your right hand on the side, almost making a T shape. Then bend your legs and follow through. USE YOUR LEGS NO JUST YOUR ARMS!!!

How do lefty's use the M16?

First, you determine whether you are right-eyed or left eyed. (Make an OK circle with thumb and index finger and look at someone through it . . . if they see your right eye through your finger circle, then you are right-eyed, if not, left-eyed. This may not agree with your handedness.) If the lefty is right-eyed, no problem, just shoot right-handed. If the lefty is left-eyed . . . there is a problem in that they will have to shoot right-handed with the non-dominant eye. That could be OK, as the left hand will be steadying and aiming the rifle while the right hand simply squeezes the trigger.
