Wait! Back up. I think you had something more interesting than 0phony shooting skeeters.

Whether the photo is fake or not, Obama is a phony.

Kerry Washington is the name. I gather that Michele isn’t that keen on her. ;-)

Who knows what the tubes do.

Looks like a fancy “smoke gun” plus why does the top barrel have a brass fitting on the end and the bottom one doesn’t?

It is an O/U right?

It is an O/U.

The screw in choke in the top barrel looks to be a yellow or brass color which would be improved cylinder. This is a choke that is ok for shooting skeet, but most people shooting a lot of skeet use screw in skeet choke tubes in both barrels.

It appears the bottom barrel has no choke tube screwed into it, which would make for a cylinder choke (no choke) again this is ok for shooting skeet, but not the choke most people use. Yes they do make cylinder screw in choke tubes.

With with threads exposed in the lower barrel it will eventually fill in the space between the threads with plastic and lead. No way you can screw in a choke tube until this is removed. There is no way that any one that shoots a lot would keep shooting without a choke tube screwed into the bottom barrel.

Shooting with sun glasses on a cloudy day? Only a rank amateur would do something dumb like that.

Why no shell pouch or vest to hold extra shot shells in the photo?

Smoke looks like it is floating away from the right side ports in the top barrel, yet you can plainly see the ports on the left side of the barrel.

Even with light target loads the small amount of smoke that comes out of ported barrels blasts out of them. The smoke coming out the right side ports look phony.

When loading an O/U almost all shooters who shoot a lot load the bottom barrel if they are only firing one shot. It cuts down on recoil.

It is a poorly staged photo op as well as photo cropped.

I have no idea if this is a phony nphoto or not. It does look like the upper barrel has a top (vertical) port. As for the apparent lack of recoil, someone had earlier posted that this was a 28-gauge shotgun; thus, the recoil would not be that significant. What DOES bother me about this photo is that the idiot is supposed to be shooting target clays, and is shooting FLAT! Thus, he appears to be shooting at the skeet launch, and not at the clay. ObaMao has terrible gun discipline, and should not be allowed anywhere near a firearm. The man is dangerous on so many levels.

“The author may not realize that some bird guns and loads are quite lightly recoiling.”

Ah! Come on! There was probably nothing in that shell besides the primer and the wad. “ Pull!——ploot.” And mount the stock against your Clavicle,,, pain happens! Notice that they’ve changed their narrative. It’s no longer Skeet, it’s now clay targets.

That would be a very short, if not non-existent, list.

Well..... I found this at

It’s talking about a Virginia gun show, so it references Virginia gun laws. Under the “out-of-state” category it says:

“Here is the relevant text:
Criminal history record information check required for the transfer of certain firearms. You must fill out the paperwork and pass the background check, you can then take your firearm with you.
“In addition, no dealer shall sell, rent, trade or transfer from his inventory any assault firearm to any person who is not a citizen of the United States or who is not a person lawfully admitted for permanent residence. To establish citizenship or lawful admission for a permanent residence for purposes of purchasing an assault firearm, a dealer shall require a prospective purchaser to present a certified birth certificate or a certificate of birth abroad issued by the United States State Department, a certificate of citizenship or a certificate of naturalization issued by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, an unexpired U.S. passport, a United States citizen identification card, a current voter registration card, a current selective service registration card, or an immigrant visa or other documentation of status as a person lawfully admitted for permanent residence issued by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services.”
Attention Gun Show Attendees....Do you need to know what type of ID you need to purchase a firearm from a Federally Licensed Dealer, as we have to turn down a lot of sales when people don’t have these specific ID’s
Attention North Carolina Residents.....
All Handgun Buyers in North Carolina can now purchase a handgun without a Purchase Permit if you have a Concealed Carry Permit....if you do not have a Concealed Carry Permit then you must have a Purchase Permit from your local Sheriff.
Attention Virginia Residents....
Concealed Carry Permit Holders can now make unlimited multi handgun purchases.”

Additionally, his barrel is almost horizontal.... At a minimum, it would be elevated at around a forty-five degree angle to almost vertical.

Maybe he was shooting them low-hanging skeet.

I know nothing about guns, skeet, or most anything else. lol.

But this is presumably at some kind of firing range, right? Do they have those in DC? If this was a real photo would it have been taken in Virginia?

I just looked up the law for firearms. I have no idea whether this kind of rifle qualifies as an “assault firearm”, but the law says that in order to either sell or rent out an “assault firearm” (which I thought was one you don’t have to reload or re-cock or whatever every time you pull the trigger, which seems like what you’d want for sport shooting...), a dealer has to see proof of citizenship or valid permanent residency. IOW, a certified birth certificate.

Am I understanding this right? I warned you ahead of time that I don’t know much about this stuff. lol

Clinton. Bush. Obama. All pawns of the real powers that be.

What do all of them have in common ? It is loooong past time to burn Harvard to the ground. Yale and Columbia too.

These are bastions of communism. They have long ago sworn off allegiance to the USA. They should be target #1 of any revolution. Destroy them....spare some of the science departments. But they rest is firewood.

This is not ivy envy, as I went to Cornell. But you don't see the influence of Princeton, Brown, Dartmouth, or Cornell as you do from these three cesspools.

There is a skeet range at Camp David, originally built during the Eisenhower administration.

It’s not a rifle, it’s a shotgun. I’m absolutely certain that Obama didn’t buy it as this model of Browning was manufactured from about 1995 to 2008, it’s more likely stored at Camp David as a loaner gun.

Nothing “assault” about it.

We know she’s not wearing mom-jeans. She is holding a shell.
