Re: “Aiming kind of low”
I think he’s aiming at the skeet launcher and pulls the trigger when he hears the warning buzz.
It appears to be an O/U that is ported. This is a common practice in skeet, trap and sporting clays. It has a what appears to be a factroy recoil pad indicating that it’s not used very much. One problem is that porting would produce smoke from both sides of the barrell and I’m not sure of the vertical angle of the smoke. If he’s shooting at a clay target on a skeet field, he’s pointing way too low. This photo will likely raise more questions from Freepers who do shoot the clay target sports. My guess is that they gave him a shotgun and took a posed picture.
Please check out posts 51 and 64.
Tell me what you think.
Nice pic but misquoted. The Quote is “I do skeet shooting at Camp David” not “I go”
Whatever is at the end of the barrel looks metallic. There is no blur, so I assume it is not the projectile.
What type of camera would be necessary to freeze the action of a shotgun discharge to capture the projectile? Shutter speed?
In a very controlled enviornment that is possible. This is outdoors and appears adhoc.
It is (if real) one frame of a very high speed camera series that could also display the charge leaving the muzzle.
Such a camera is used on Myth Busters to display shooting results. It appears as slow motion
It will happen when his masters deam him of no further use.
The attachment at the end of the barrel looks like brass to me. Not yellow plastic.
I know there are cameras that freeze motion, but 1500 fps is pretty fast.
If I could do photoshop, I would insert a shotgun strapped to his back as he peddles that “metrosexual” bicycle while wearing his mom-jeans.
Anyone out there that can do that?
It always looks strange to me for people to look down the barrel of the gun as if aiming a rifle.>>>>>>>>>>>>>
You are right. I’d say Obama is not much of a skeet or trap shooter. He also is not leaning into the gun the way he should be for the skinny effer he really is.
Hey, thats a great GIF....but really, why not do the right thing and put an AR-15 into his hands instead of a shot gun?
In my humble opinion. . the photo is fake. . .it has been photoshopped. The photo of Obama holding a gun is masked on top of the photo of Camp David and the gun smoke. . which was probably coming from a gun fired in the Camp David photo that now has Obama masked on top. If you zoom in closely. . .you can see pixel noise around the Obama with gun image. . .this would not appear if it were one image. . . .what a fraud.
His entire existence is conjured.
Did he pass his background check?
He don’t need no stinkin background.
He is a Commie Dem and is about the Law.
