Hello to all,

I am new to Perfect Union, and fairly new to shooting. I recently purchased a slightly used 186 series mini 14 (s.s.) from an online auction. The previous owner told me about this forum and I have been reading many of your discussions wile waiting for it to arrive.
I picked up the rifle yesterday, and as I was looking it over I remembered some of the members commenting about the way these guns launch shell casings with tremendous force. It didn't occour to me at the time, but now I am wondering. Being left handed, can I expect to have a dented forehead and powder burned face after touching off a few rounds with this thing?

I hope to do some shooting with it this week end, and if this is likely to happen I would greatly appreciate a warning.

Thank You,
Powder Burn

Take your mini out shooting, you'll be fine. I'm a lefty and have never had problems, stock or with Mikes gas port kit. Mine tends to throw brass forward and away, not back at me.
