Problems choosing hockey stick (lefty or righty?)

I have a little issue choosing my hockey stick.
I'm right handed all together. (When I write, I use my right hand.. etc)
My right arm is probably a little stronger than my left.. muscle wise.

However, when I hold a hockey stick I have a lot more control with my left arm on the bottom of the stick and my right arm on the top handle portion.
I like to stick handle on my left side on my body although I also can on my right side. However, when I shoot the puck, I'm used to shooting from my right side of my body. I shoot farther on that side.. however, I' am currently using a righty stick.
Should I get a lefty stick and force myself to learn to shoot from my left side? Will I get more control with a lefty stick when shooting?

Also, I've been skating for about 4-6 months. I play INLINE/ROLLER HOCKEY, not ice. I just started stick handling and practicing with a hockey stick. I attend open hockey on friday's and just play/practice.
