I don't know of any bullpup with a bolt handle that reciprocates and/or is placed close enough to hit someone in the face. And shooting a normal AR may in fact pelt you in the face with brass anyway. They really like to eject almost straight back, even with a brass deflector.

"Being a proficient shooter" has a million different meanings to a million different people, and I'm doubtful that many are even close to proficient with their non-dominant hand as they are with their dominant hand. I agree that the ability to shoot with your non-dominant hand is a very valuable trait to have, especially if you're talking defensive situations, but it's necessity is weighed down by individual perceptions of proficiency, and of course the cost of ammo and time needed to train your non-dominant hand.

Not really. I have put more rounds through my father's Colt AR than I have almost any other rifle, and I cannot recall ever getting any brass to the face from it

On a related note, my P22 is notorious for spitting out brass into hair, down the backs of shirts, and into the gap between the firer's face and eye-protection

I have a 1954 Russian that I got several years ago for a reasonable price. I dont think there is anything wrong with the Norincos but I wanted a Russian one.

Century arms is not military grade at all, they suck.
'
And whats with kel tec? they show stuff at every shot show then it becomes impossible to find. They have no manufacturing capability. Also, its sad but ive heard the ar160 wont be here for a couple more years, but that thing is cool.

I haven't had too many problems with AR type weapons,. (I shoot lefty)

Had some problems with my Ruger P-95 throwing brass under my glasses.


And I'm wierd in that I like shooting a right handed bolt gun left handed.

However, my duck gun is a left handed Benelli.
