    Hi,
    I noticed from the pic's taken at the World's that several of the entrants had what I would call reversed Butthooks i.e.the hook was on top of the shoulder rather than under the arm.
    What if any are the advantages / disadvantages of this set up?. Wouid it aide standing shots?

    standers

    the normal butt hooks, are there to aid standing, because most of them have the weight in the front on the gun, so then the but hook, hooks under the arm pit and pretty much locks the gun in, so the original butt hooks are to aide standing shots, i have no idea what inverted one are for ?

    ... it's called an ellipsis and its function is to replace missing words in a sentence where those words should be apparent from preceding text. A lazy way of using a quote.

    ... like a bullpup - could be a continuation from my previous response

    We must be a bit sad discussing English grammar at this time of night

    I'm off for a nightcap

    Cheers
