What is the discharge to his right from the barrel? Are they porting shotguns now to reduce recoil?
I learned to shoot shotguns as a very young boy, hunting quail and dove with my father. We learned instinctive hunting. It always looks strange to me for people to look down the barrel of the gun as if aiming a rifle. I get just as good of results "snap shooting" and find the other approach odd.
Oh good, that means the one is a sportsman just like me. Now I am convinced his gun control measures are for my own safety. /s
bunch of folking bee ess
I'm glad you asked that. Any "skeet shooters" here? What's up with that?
Smoke from a first shot? Gun level and no shoulder turn does not look like skeet shooting to me.
I have to wonder what the capacity of that shotgun he is using has?
Wouldn’t it be ironic if it was over 7....
Has he ever held a gun before? That high up on the shoulder will leave him with a nasty bruise.
He’s a lefty ...
Some shotguns are ported to reduce recoil. However, I’m wondering whether this might be a blank, due to the lack of muzzle rise and “smoke” evident. Personally, I would not trust Barry with a shotgun and live ammunition for obvious safety concerns; his Secret Service bodyguards.
Looks like he’s firing a blank.
Even with the lightest of loads you sould notice some recoil.
He even shoots like a fag, if this is even a real photo.
That will NOT end well...
It doesn't look to me like he has.
my daughter does not shoot like that. hee hee hee
You beat me by this much.
I too think it’s a blank.
He’s aiming kinda low, isn’t he?
It appears to be an over/under double. 2 is your answer.
