    Several of the Carbine 2 courses I have run have sections that focus on shooting and manipulation with your weak side hand ( the theory being you were injured or had to hold something in your other hand you couldn't put down, like a child.) While my weak side shooting was better than I expected ( I do practice,) I found that left handed weapon malfunctions were a PITA to say the least. In several cases requiring me to basically step on the gun using my foot to hold open bolt and clear jams ( not something I had done prior to these sections.) It required a little thought and problem solving on the fly , toughest part for many in the class was throwing their 2 thousand dollar AR on the ground and stepping on it, mine are tools not safe queens but some of the looks from students was priceless when the instructor told them to step on their gun on the gravel

    I never did that. But shooting roll over prone or whatever with the ejection port blasting down into the dirt.... good for getting your gun a little crusty.
