I sold a Hi Point 9mm Carbine because it sprayed burned powder at my Lefty Wife's face. She has never complained about that issue shooting either of the Minis I've had. Both a 22 and most pistol carbines are blow back designs which may be part of the problem. With a locked bolt design the pressure should be low by the time the bolt opens..
Sally also never has any issues shooting her Benelli Autoloader which is a right handed gun. Did get her a Left Handed AR Target Rifle as she likes to shoot off the bench and I could find a Stag Left handed one.
