I'm left handed but will shoot with either I'm more comfortable shooting left handed but like to keep the muscle memory pretty up to date so that I can shoot pretty much as well with my "off hand".

Im just the Opposite of Mr Wray even though Im a righty for most things. Im farsighted and my right eye isnt very good at all. Shooting lefty with a MG was never much fun even with the brass deflector. (better close the top button of your shirt or get ready for a burning sensation)!

I am left handed to . And I have always shot left hand. Never owned a left handed rifle cause I never saw the point in paying extra for a left handed rifle. I never had a problem when I was in the army shooting any weapon with the brass hitting me in the face.

The face isnt the problem, its down your shirt thats the problem (mostly M16)! Burns like a SOB and can cause erratic bursts of fire during the burn! Its no fun to be inside a Tow Gunship with the 50 mounted and rocking either, a shower of hot brass!

I have never had hot brass go down my shirt from an m16/m4 or an 249 s.a.w . So I don't know what you are talking about.

Damn near blind in my right eye, but I still shoot pistols right handed. I shoot rifles left handed though.
