    Hi guys just a what may seem like a daft question :)
    I shoot left handed with my bsa break barrel , break it with my right hand and load pellets with my right hand. Now with the tx being underleaver what action would I be best off getting l/h or right hand for ease of loading pellets ? I have no issues using a r/h stock left-hand, Hope this makes sence thanks in advance .

    With the BSA - break with right, hold with right whilst loading with left. That way your trigger finger can not be on the trigger and you have control of the barrel at all times.
    With a TX it's exactly the same for a leftie. Being a leftie get a L/H action and stock for ease of loading. If you get a R/H action you'll be letting go of the underlever and /or keeping trigger fingers near triggers. Despite the beartrap it's not a good area for trusting safety systems to work every time.

    If you shoot with your left hand for trigger using your left eye down scope with a TX200 you will need a left handed version stock and action.
    With TX200 the check peice is rolled so you need a stock to suite weather to you shoot left or right, the action also has a sliding chamber where you load the pellet this also depends wether you shoot left or right.

    (im right handed)
    with break barrels i break with my left, thumb a pellet in with my right and then cock n close the gun in one action (100% safe)
    im guessing as your left handed you would do the same but with opposite hands
    with my TX200 i cock the lever with my left hand, thumb in a pellet with my right (while still having my left hand on the lever), then click the catch off with my right hand while closing the breech with my left
    im guessing if you have a right handed action you will be better of trying to learn to do it the same way due to the breech and catch position

    As previously mentioned. If you can get a leftie breach and stock, if thats not an option, I would cock the lever with the right hand and keeping my right hand on the lever, lay the rifle over and load the pellet into the breach which is now up ontop of the action if that all makes sense
