obama goes shooting...

 

 


The White House released the above photo to "prove" that obama is a "skeeter".

Something doesn't seem quite right about this picture, though.  Still, I won't claim that it was photo-shopped...

Powder charge only, no shot, for the photo op?  I ask only because there is no apparent recoil.

His form seems to be a little off.  The stock is riding a little bit high on his shoulder.  That's gonna hurt.  Sight picture might be a little off, too...  He appears to be looking at the break down lever rather than the front sight bead.  That is a result of the way he is shouldering the shotgun.  He could be taught, I think...

Cheek weld is good, though.  :)  Glad to see that he's wearing eye and hearing protection.

I'd rather see the video than the still...  :)  Just sayin'

Stay safe.

I'm no skeet shooting expert (only been a few times years ago), buuuuuut - his stance looks mighty damn weird. If he's leaning back because of recoil, then he must be a real wuss 'cause that gun has the little release valve thingy on top to stop most the recoil. ("release valve" and "thingy" are professional terms for real gun people - heh)

And why is he shooting almost straight ahead? Hope he doesn't hit the "pull" person.


The AP said he, "had a rifle cocked in his shoulder." Now that's funny.

Oh - and the stock placement was the very first thing I noticed. My first time skeeting I was instructed in no uncertain terms to never have the stock that high or I would damage my shoulder.

Okay - the more I study that picture the more I'm convinced it was shopped. Why is not wearing a skeet shooting vest? Are they trying to say that Camp David doesn't come equipped with vests? Not likely!

I think they took the picture and dragged and dropped it on a background and added the powder. Just my opinion...

Dear Adrienne... I think you covered it! :) Whoot! He is no Gunner. (That "valve thingy" is barrel porting:))

David P. ... thanks for the link. Excellent comments over there. Seems that no one believes this picture. Seems it might be kinda like his birth certificate, social security card and draft card... Fake.

I use to shoot a lot of trap and when I saw the photograph I immediately thought something doesn't look right. I would love to get him on a trap and skeet range with a video camera. I am sure it would show he is a lying POS.

The more I look at that picture, the hoakier it is... It's a fake. I've been reading the comments on some of the chats. The obamanites believe it's a real picture. So stupid.

I caught the stock placement, but missed the vest which I always used shooting trap.
