The world needs another Asian with an AR.

I shoot all my rifles right-handed as well. 90% of my long guns are close-quarters battle rifles, and most are equipped with some type of optic that allows me to shoot with both eyes open. With my magnified optic rifles, I close my left eye when using the scope anyway, so my eye dominance doesn't matter.
anyone have any opinions about the Ruger p345? been looking at one here local. Like the feel but want to know a little more from ruger owners or shooters

So should I be looking at left hand specific ARs?
Any modern upper is going to have a brass deflector that should prevent any issues with brass hitting you in the face or shoulder when shooting southpaw. Just adapt around the rest from there. On mag changes for instance, instead of using my trigger finger like a righty would on an AR, I use my off-hand (right hand) thumb on the mag release and wrap my fingers around the mag as it's released. For the bolt release, I just rotate the rifle along the buttstock/bore axis to about 10:30/11 o'clock and hit it with my right hand, similar to how many modern guys teach a righty to operate an AK's bolt with their off-hand (left hand).
By adapting to the normal right-handed controls, I can pick up any AR or duty issue M16/M4 and I'm right at home. Since I'm left eyed and right handed, and I learned as a young boy to shoot right handed, adapting to a 'righty' rifle as a southpaw makes it much easier for me to switch back to shooting right-handed if needed, too.
So for whatever my southpaw opinion is worth, just get a cheap righty AR and practice practice practice.

Tein Coilovers, R154 swapped.
AR pistol upper from JSE Surplus is in. I'm somewhat disappointed as I expected the YHM rail to mate up to the receiver a little better
Excuse the pic, apparently my mom is as bad as my brother at taking gun pics
I'll post pics of the 20" upper when it gets in.
Ah well. I'll work on it when I get home.
Actually, now that I see a better pic of it, it's not THAT bad.
I can't wait to shoot mine, I've never tried the KX3.
I guess I could just top the whole thing with a riser
Just ordered a Trijicon ACOG TA31F (finally figured out that I can use the mobile version of Arfcom to get around the Saudi internet blockage ). Red chevron. Found a decent deal so I went ahead and bit the bullet... stung a little, but should be good to go for the 20" AR. The upper just came in and I'm waiting for my mom to send pics of it.
I also pre-ordered the Burris Fastfire III... has some features over the II that I like, so I'm glad I waited. Should be in later this month.
Now to decide if I need the EoTech XPS2 or XPS3... it shouldn't be an issue since I don't have nightvision goggles, but you never know. I might buy some one day
Now THIS makes me happy 20" upper with Troy VTac Alpha 15" rail. I am not disappoint
Am I the only one buying crap? I didn't mean your purchases for ONLY the week before the thread...
Ordered a 10-pack of DSG Arms GI mags. I had very few GI mags (mostly Pmags). They were running a special of $85 for a case, dunno if it's still going on.
Decided to go with BCM for my next upper. I'd like at least one high-quality AR (I like my PSA, but long-term reliability has yet to be seen) so I'll spend a little extra to get this one as perfect (for me) as I can. Will post pics when I order it. Still haven't decided on the lower yet though...
