Article on ambidextrous use of the bullpup
One of the differentiators in the training community is the maturity of ambidextrous use of the rifle. For some of us, it's old hat...and for some it's undiscovered territory.
Discussion of technique/capability is far more interesting, IMHO, than equipment. But the right equipment will certainly influence technique, and in the case of the bullpup it can certainly enhance capability.
Performing a complete left shoulder transfer (rifle's stock goes to the left shoulder and the hands trade places) is generally preferable to the partial transfer (shoulders are switched but not the hands) with a standard rifle.
With a bullpup however, engaging targets with a partial shoulder transfer is quite easy.
This article discusses partial transfers that are even shorter. Not necessary with an FS2000 but makes a lot of sense with an AUG or a Tavor...
