I'm left handed. If I shoot an sks or one of the many ak-47 variants out there, will the casings have a chance of hitting me in the face or head?

Most AK's that I have seen/fired [i]usually[/i] eject forward and right..but not always so sometimes you will get hit with brass. With an SKS the cases eject straight up!! Mine ejects rather forcefully and sometimes it does go inside my shirt. Overall I would suggest the SKS would be best for a left hander.

I am a southpaw and shot both SKS and AK47 rifles. Never got hit in the face of the spent cases. You will be fine. ASR

I'm a southpaw myself and own a SKS and I have never been hit in the face.

I'm lefty, I've shot an SKS once and it didn't hit me. I've shot several AK's and my own Bulgie AK has never hit me with a casing. It did shoot one down my wife's shirt once but that's another story. (PG-13) Crash.

I shoot lefty, No problem at all with either. Watch out for the old pre brass deflector AR15's though. Dem shells is hot, hot hot!
