The only conclusion I can come to is that they WANT to keep the staged photo in front of the public eye......and figure that daring people to photoshop it will result in it going viral.

Or what, he’ll put you on double secret probation. How about a photo of him shooting himself in the butt?

Empty threats are the result of an empty mind.

It’s sad that the White House tries to make up its own laws on this issue. As a U.S. government photograph, it is not subject to copyright so we can do whatever we want with it. Further, even if it were copyrighted, alteration of the picture for the purposes of commentary or even satire is consistent with the principles of the First Amendment.

Yep, it looks as if they staged the photo recently. He's aiming awfully low and straight ahead for skeet.

I think it’s a warning to any media that publishes a photoshopped image that they will be cut off from WH access and the unions and DNC will stop buying the thousands of online subscriptions that is keeping their lights on.

Obama is left handed and wears his watch on his left wrist. Very strange.

What is that plume of smoke shooting out the side of the barrel?

It'sa vented barell that cuts down on recoil and the front end rising. Trouble is that most are vented on both sides, not just one so there should be two plumes of smoke.

As I noted on the earlier thread, why is he shooting over the road? Also someone mentioned that the grass and trees are way to green to be taken in winter.

The White House can warn people not to alter the photo for the purposes of endorsing any particular position, but that's gratuitous anyway. It's a standard legal restriction (it violates "Fair Use" of copyrighted material.)

Parody is covered by both Fair Use and the First Amendment. There's nothing they can do to stop the use of their photos for political humor.

Looking closely at the pic in post #24 there do appear to be barrel ports visible.

Perhaps the smoke was photoshopped?

That's a compensator - but I don't know why it's only smoking out one side - you can see the vents on this side, but no smoke.

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.

Skeet choke.

But there's not one on the bottom barrel. Go figure.
