Skip to comments.Obama Fake Gun Photo
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 doesnt look like the Presidents watch. And that leaves aside why the President is shooting a fancy Japanese-made gun instead of a down-to-earth Mossberg or Remington.
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.
I believe the original is supposed to be on Flickr.
I thought Brownings were made in Belgium?
