Obama Fake Gun Photo
Stop Wasting Money ^ | 2/2/2013 | Warren Redlich

Posted on 02/02/2013 3:33:36 PM PST by wredlich

After a mini-controversy about a claim from President Obama that he shoots clay pigeons at Camp David, the White House released a photo of “Obama” shooting a $2500 Browning Citori shotgun. Problem: It doesn’t look like the President’s watch. And that leaves aside why the President is shooting a fancy Japanese-made gun instead of a down-to-earth Mossberg or Remington.

He also changed his shirt, pants, sunglasses, and the colour of his hair

The watch is a very weak stretch.

It's not the watch he was wearing on the day the picture was supposedly taken

Why isn’t he aiming upwards if he is shooting skeet...?

Actually, there are websites that track very intimate details of the watches presidents wear. they really offer a significant time line. In this case, i have no idea, other than most of the ones i, quickly, checked have no inventory of the watch in the photograph.

Dunno - maybe waiting for it to stop so he can shoot it?

The NRA said it best. One picture of him doing something doesn’t counter the YEARS spent opposing the second amendment. He shoots like a girlie-man, just the way he bowls or throws a ball.

Obama spends his 51st birthday on the golf course
(Reuters) – President Barack Obama celebrated his 51st birthday on Saturday with a round of golf, then helicoptered to the Camp David presidential retreat for a quiet evening off the campaign trail.

http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/08/04/us-usa-obama-birthday-idUSBRE8730F820120804

Obama was wearing his ring when playing golf but removed it later in the day for skeet shooting at Camp David? Why is that?

With as many people who want to kill Obama, he must have a few body doubles.

This could have been taken today in the Bahamas, with a body double.. who knows.

We will never really know the truth about this government.

Two observations:

(1) The butt of the gun is way too high on his shoulder.

(2) With the butt of the gun that high his line of sight is below the top plane of the barrel so he can't see the target.

.410 is a great skeet gauge. Managed to leave the sport with a 96% average in the little gun. Also have shot it at Sporting. You can hit out to 50 yards with it if you know how.

Based on my observation, it’s about “the hair” (Aug ‘12 vs. Feb. ‘13)...but I could be wrong.

A.) If a lowly peasant such as I can have more than one wristwatch, I'm sure the President can as well and B.) my old college roommate was an accomplished skeet shooter. The Browning Citori was the shotgun he preferred.

This was a photo-op. Nothing more.

I got some funny looks as a youngster hunting quail with my Dads 1897 Winchester (’trenchsweeper’) so I got a Remington 1100. The Winchester shot as well and believe it was lighter.
Now I’ve got a sweet Browning over and under 20.

I don’t know why this is such a controversy. Everyone in the country knows he doesn’t shoot. I don’t see why he can’t go out to some field with some shotgun provided him by his handlers, shoot it, and have the picture taken.

I downloaded the largest file available, 3000x2000 but the 5D Mark III is capable if much higher. After zooming in on his watch and dropping the levels so the watch is dark it appears as though there has been some manipulation to the watch face, maybe to obscure the actual time.

Also, many parts of the weapon, etc are slightly out of focus however his right arm has an extremely straight line down it as well as his sleeve on his right arm. The light appears to be coming from 2 different directions. It is extremely difficult to shoot a dark shirt and have the fabric show up well when the light is coming from over his high right shoulder.
