Shooting it left handed will cause you no issues whatsoever.

Have you cooked any fools? Or jumped through the air firing two guns?

Just be aware thet the ejection port on the weapon is on the RHS and that ejected cases will travel across your right eye's 'line of sight'.
sling adapyers for left hand shooters are available.

You will also have to cock it a little odd too as the cocking lever is on the left, you sort of have to reach over to the other side to do it with your none firing hand if that makes sense... Niether this, nor the ejection port being on the right side would cause you any problems using the weapon. its designed to be ambidextrous (spelling).
personally i think the way it works (both its use and the physics in its recycling of the bolt is a feat of german precision.

I wouldnt worry about using the MP5 in full auto or burst fire in the british police.

Again the 36 is an ambidextrous weapon and will cause you no problems shooting left handed.
Asking what each weapon is used for is dipping into tactics a little so you probably won't get a reply seeing as it's a public forum.
If you are in the Police, ask a member of your firearms team.
Also, the MP5 and the G36 are both semi automatic weapons. All this means is you pull the trigger, 1 round is fired and the weapon ejects the spent case and reloads another round for you. The weapon will not fire another round off until you pull the trigger again (for Police use that is)

I know of people who shoot their carbine right handed and their pistol left handed! It causes them no problems

Guys, there are many left handed AFOs out there, it is absolutely no issue at all. As has been said, all the weapons we use can be just as easily shot left or right handed and all the kit and equipment you use will be either ambidextrous or tailor made for a left hander.

Whilst the MP5 is a nice weapon, I preferred the HK53 when I carried it in N.I.

Bart, i also am a fan of the HK 53, I believe that although the stopping power with a 9mm round is ample for a domestic setting. The 556 round is obviously superior! 👍
