Left to right, or right to left?

Hello Mas - Not necessarily a SD question, but couldn't find a forum on general action pistol shooting, so I thought I'd run this past you. I met you at an IDPA match in Phoenix several years ago and enjoyed our brief conversation, so I know you'll understand what I'm talking about.

Shooting a match like the IDPA Classifier, there's an el Presidente string and as a right handed shooter I've typically shot the three targets after pivoting to the right around my gun hand, going left to right. It seems natural, and then reloading and making the head shots coming back, from right to left.

Any recommendations either way and reasoning behind your thoughts?

Once again, thanks much for sharing your wisdom in these matters.

(P.S. - I'm shooting my bone stock Gen 4-19 in the CCP division of a Classifier in the morning and will probably do a lot of 'visualizing' the weak hand and 20-yard shots. Hope I get a good night's sleep and can pin down an Expert classification to go with my SSP Expert achievement a few years ago under the old rules, with the larger head shots.)

Wow! That's what I call breaking it down. Thanks much. I'll give it a try next Classifier. Today I did my usual left to right and then back, but by then I'd already messed up Stage 1, so I was a bit depressed about my performance. Next time...
