off hand. or are the harder because the center of balance is farther back in the gun. im thinking about building a bull pup for field target. also whats the minimum velocity for a ft gun in .177. i hear most shoot around 850 to 900. is this right?

and if the bull pup is easier to shoot for some, then they will be more accurate.

But that all presupposes the gun's action is up to it from the get go....

And I think there'd be some ergonomic advantage. HFT maybe not, but from a siting postion in a FT harness, yea it could work

... ease of sitting/hiding in a vehicle while shooting out of a window of said vehicle? lol

I'd like to try one someday to see, but generally I do prefer a more muzzle heavy rifle.

I plink, therefore I am.
