More relevant, however, is the forcing of left-handed children to use their right hands when writing, eating, or performing other basic tasks. A huge proportion, probably 80% or more, of left-handed Japanese children are forced to use their right hands. The practice is common in Japan as well as Taiwan, India, Indonesia, and other countries in Asia, as well as in the United States (historically).

Ironsky wrote: I'm not sure what the technological parallels are with modern weapons, but I have it from a left handed ex-soldier that modern longarms are all right handed (for military issue at least), and that left handed people are just taught to fire right handed. It's just a matter of cost.
Ironsky wrote: The Tau may not see it that way though, so, given the example from the above link, a simple pauldron swap and probably two green stuffed arms should get you some left handed firewarriors.
As for dominant hands on a battlesuit, to my mind that would not show, as the battlesuit its self would be equally functional with either arm.
