Cowboy Safety preferences on rifles

I do unusual things like learn to shoot all my weapons with either hand. I'm right eyed so I buy right handed firearms. Am I the only one or are the safeties on most right handed rifles made to better accomodate left handed shooters? When I snap the model 700 or a model 70 or a new ruger or the weatherby to my shoulder left handed, the safety is pushed off as my thumb wraps around the grip in a very natural manner and seems quicker than when I do it right handed and have to change sides to get a grip on the stock. The old rugers with the tang safety were the best. It was under your thumb and fast. I think most manufactuers have it wrong. What do you think? God bless and good shooting.
