Left or right-hand-side folding stock? I can't decide. My Daewoo K2s fold to the right, along with my FAL paratrooper. Looking at photos here, the VEPR 12s, when they have factory-like folders, fold to the left. Which would be better, and why? I was leaning towards right-hand-side, but few of the images I can find show that configuration.
Thoughts?

I prefer right side folding. Its seems to be faster and easier to sweep it open being right handed. It opens toward your body from the outside rather than opening inside under your left arm. It will also close if you have a QD and optics on the siderail if its an AK. Of course the V12 has a rail on top. I still personally think its more efficient on the right as long as you can get to the trigger with it folded and it doesn't cover your ejection port.

It really doesnt matter unless you are planning on slinging for extended period of time. Depending where the sling points are and the type of sling you want to use left side folders can be a little awkward, at least for fat mall ninjas like me.
