Posted on 02/02/2013 1:21:03 PM PST by SoFloFreeper
The White House has released a picture purporting to show President Obama "skeet shooting" at Camp David. An activity he claims he does "all the time."
The White House also warns all you mischievous internet types to not mess around with the picture:
"This official White House photograph is being made available only for publication by news organizations and/or for personal use printing by the subject(s) of the photograph. The photograph may not be manipulated in any way and may not be used in commercial or political materials, advertisements, emails, products, promotions that in any way suggests approval or endorsement of the President, the First Family, or the White House."
Um.... Are you listening, Iowahawk and Ace of Spades?

I gotta coupla other observations --
He's only got one choke (on the top barrel). What gives widDAT?
He's got way too much finger in the trigger - and way too much hand on the fore-end.
If he were shooting skeet, the barrel wouldn't be horizontal with the ground. Even on a low house 3 or 4, a novice might start with the muzzle fairly low, but he wouldn't (or shouldn't) fire at that point.
His head is way too low on the comb, looks like he can't even look down the rib because the receiver's in the way. Probably all he can see is the back of the receiver.
But the real stupid thing is that half the buttplate is waving in the air - he is way out of the "pocket", the natural resting place for the shotgun between your arm and chest. If he actually shot for more than one photo-op, he would be black and blue and have his arm in a sling.
His stance is all wrong too, he's leaning back and the shot probably dumped him on his fanny if it wasn't a blank (or .410).
Conclusion: this is a flippin' photo-op, they grabbed a shotgun out of the rack, never noticed a choke was missing, and they tried to coach him but he just couldn't hold the shotgun right.
The barrel is ported so that propellant gasses can escapt and reduce recoil and barrel jump. Only problem is that there are two sets of holes in a ported barrel, one on each side and I see only one whiff of smoke.
‘If you ever saw the picture of him throwing a ball you wouldnt have to wonder.’
I did and I don’t :)
That’s a double barrel over-under. What is that protruding from the top barrel?
But there's not one on the bottom barrel. Go figure.
Full foliage. Green grass. Middle of the winter. It's a miracle!
BROOKLYN RASPBERRY RIGHT IN DER N, UH, OBAMA’S FACE!
Good catch! Obama is a FRAUD!
lol, smooth...too good.
“Uhmm... Mr. President, you’re actually supposed to... Oh, never mind. Excellent shot, sir.”

I’ll bet he was using popper loads, like for dog training. They put out a great puff of smoke. If your trying to make a gun look intimidating to the low information populous, why not make a lot of smoke?
If a kid takes this picture of Obama to school, will he or she be suspended for having a picture of a gun???
The photo is from Aug. 4, 2012, his birthday, last year.
Look at the two trees in the background where the barrel and the smoke cross the field of vision. Both trees just happen to crook in the same direction at those points.
I call Photoshopped.
What is wrong with these weirdos with their high waisted- belted up blue jeans? Freaky nerdy control freaks. They look so stupid trying to be cool. Get out of here losers. They are the Kings of the nerds.
The FIRST AMENDMENT precludes this type of “threat”.
Once again obama demonstrates his position as constitutional law lecturer was 100% cronyism.
Just have him bring a suit.
Well, it beats their waistband being half way (or more) down their butts, as is common in urban areas these days.
