    Thumbs down Obama skeet shooting pic, I call Bull

    I am not a skeet shooter but I have fired 3 different shotguns in my life.

    The pic of Obama 'skeet shooting' is, in my opinion, photoshopped. He may have held the shotgun but he didn't fire it. Why?

    Look at the puff of smoke coming from the right side of the barrel. Does anyone know of a shotgun that does that?

    Look at the way he is holding the butt high on his shoulder. A 12 GA would leave a pretty good bruise in that position.

    Why is he shooting almost parallel to the ground? Nearly every skeet shoot photo I have ever seen is showing a much more vertical angle.

    Look at his fingers on the foregrip. They wrap around and onto the barrel. After more than one shot wouldn't the barrel be a little hot for that grip?

    Draw a line along the top of the barrel and extend it to his face. Looks to me like he is aiming through his eyelid.

    Sorry, I just don't buy it.

    He could just be a darn lousy shot.

    The barrel is ported to reduce recoil, thats why you see smoke from the side. As far as his posture, it's not ideal but it's better than some I have seen.

    BTW ... How many of these similar posts about Obama shooting a gun do we need to have?

    I'm trying to figure out where all that "smoke" is coming from. My shotgun doesn't do that. Could it be the Secret Service restricts the Prez to black powder?

    I'd like to see some news medium duplicate the shot and post both for a comparison.

    Your calling BS of your photoshopped version is correct. Here is the original.

    I start my aim right above the house for trap and about the same angle for skeet. But then again I do it for fun...not an expert like the POTUS. I do not think it is photoshopped but would not be surprised.

    What difference does it make? He's still a communist dictator either way!
