    Default Obama Shooting Clays

    Does this look like someone that shoots clays all the time?


    His form is terrible. Besides the poor grip on the fore, he is standing straight up like he was shooting a rifle!

    Possibly, a staged photo opt to appeal the GOP establishment
    The Libertarian Party believes that all persons are entitled to keep the fruits of their labor. A call for the repeal of the income tax, abolishment of the Internal Revenue Service and all federal programs and services not required under the U.S. Constitution. We support the passage of a "Balanced Budget Amendment" to the U.S. Constitution, provided that the budget is balanced exclusively by cutting expenditures, and not by raising taxes. LP.org

    The Obama people have coined a new term for people like us that think he would dare stage a photo like this...

    We are "Skeeters". Ala Birthers. Proud to be a skeeter... I don't believe he would know which end of the gun to point away from himself.

    Who else would care to post a picture of themselves shooting trap. skeet or five stand? Some bellies extend beyond the extended chokes on many of us. It's easy to brag or criticize on the web. A few here on PP may be remarkable shooters. They are few and far between. It doesn't take a genius to point a shotgun in the right direction and break a target. Even a blind squirrel finds a nut occasionally...JD

    It is far easier to spit on the work of others than it is to produce something better yourself.

    Though I know many on this forum personally I missed that. But as I explained one day at the local trial I have a bigger roof over my shed than I used to as I am no longer as indiscriminate in my use of the tool contained thereunder & need to keep the tool sharp & uncontaminated.

    I shot a couple of rounds of trap 50 years ago, now only shoot when harvesting game or training. Just make sure the gun I have fits me, somehow I seem to have what I consider a good shell to bird ratio, though not as good as the days when we sluiced them for food .

    Also his finger is wrapped around the trigger. He has long fingers, he is definitely not using the pad of his finger. His left elbow is pointing to the ground and the stock is in the joint of his shoulder, not in the "pocket". The fingers of his right hand are on the barrel, OK if you are wearing gloves but I don't shoot with anyone who does that, i.e. gloved hand on the barrel. And the watch?
