Steyr Arms to Publicly Unveil New AUG/A3 and Host Bullpup Tactics Seminar

TRUSSVILLE, Ala. (September 13, 2011) - Steyr Arms has announced that it has signed on as a sponsor of the 2012 Bullpup Shoot, Sept. 29-30, at the Rockcastle Shooting Center in Park City, KY. Open to the public, this event marks the first showing of the newest version of the AUG/A3 SA rifle, and in cooperation with its strategic training partner, Khyber Interactive Associates, Steyr will have Wes Doss on hand for a very special bullpup tactics seminar during the afternoon of the 29th.

While Steyr Arms began shipping its new AUG/A3 SA USA-with its cold-hammer-forged barrel and tulip-style muzzle brake-to dealers late last month, unless you pre-ordered a rifle, it's unlikely that you'll see one on the dealer's wall anytime soon. But you'll have a chance to see, hold and even fire the AUG/A3 SA USA on the line at the 2012 Bullpup Shoot. Steyr Arms will have loaded magazines available for a small donation, and all proceeds will go directly to the Wounded Warrior Foundation. And, if you're the one lucky shooter who wins the drawing at the conclusion of the Saturday events, you could take an AUG/A3 SA USA home.

Khyber Interactive Associates founder and world-renowned instructor Wes Doss will conduct a free bullpup-oriented tactics seminar on Saturday afternoon. This seminar is a combative-oriented review designed for personnel who are looking for enhanced knowledge and skills of the tactical carbine, specifically the bullpup platform and its application at ranges from contact distance out to no greater than 50 yards. The course focuses on techniques that have a broad array of applications for the bullpup system, including patrol operations, emergency response, close-quarters deployment and intermediate-range applications. The course is designed to provide a high degree of personal development topics concentrating on those areas that will enable the professional to become a more effective operator.

Schedule permitting, Doss has planned a series of live-fire exercises for pre-registered attendees after the open seminar concludes. These shooters must bring their own firearm, 100 rounds of ammunition, eye and hearing protection, and a ball cap or any other hat with a bill. Slots are limited, and to pre-register for one of these live-fire exercises, please visit the Bullpup Forums at to sign up.

"We are extremely excited to attend the 2012 Bullpup Shoot and spend some time with the ever-growing bullpup community," said Scott O'Brien, Steyr Arms CEO. "Wes has an amazing bullpup seminar planned, and we're grateful for him generously providing his time and knowledge to the attendees.

"This is a unique event, and it is the perfect place to debut the latest version of the AUG/A3 SA USA," O'Brien continued. "And did I mention that you could win one?"
