    JMHO---- If Odumbos picture,shooting the O/U shotgun wass factual and not already photoshopped, there would be powder blast coming from the visible muzzle brake holes (ports) on the left side of the barrel too. Also with that much blast exhaust, he would be farther into the recoil physically. Again JMHO.

    President George W Bush also seems to be shooting a Browning. Very interesting.

    I would like to see the Camp David Gun Rack. I wonder how many Brownings are there.

    I imagine the crowd was scrambling, when Cheney had that gun in his hands.

    I'm no physics maven, but the picture looks right...

    The President, being an occasional shooter (I mean, just how much time does the President spend at Camp David, and of that, how much time can he spend away from Michelle and girls and non-shooting dignitaries to shoot some Skeet... the fact that Camp David has a full blown Skeet set-up, the President picked up an appropriate gun and appears to have actually shot (and I'm figuring more than once... you know he had to break a bird) is very cool to me...

    He looks better than a number of the "Joe Newbies" I see at my range...

    Conspiracy theorists flame away...

    The only thing he shoots is BS out of his mouth, he doesn't have time to learn how to shoot, he's trying to wear the paint off AF 1 and learning how to play golf more often than he can meet with the security council

    Secret service probably stacked 25 birds on the ground (based on the angle of his barrel)

    "Nice shot Prez! Broke all 25!"

    His Browning is customized with ports on only one side (the right side) which tries to drive everything to the left....like he does

    Shooting at the angle he is allegedly shooting, he can't be shooting skeet. The lowest bird in skeet is a low-house 7, and that bird is considerably higher than his point of aim in this pic. Also, if he were shooting a #7, the low-bird skeet house would be immediately adjacent to him. It's NOT THERE!!!!! This is a totally photo shopped picture.

    Looks like the bottom barrel is missing a choke, unless it is flush mount, and if you blow up the picture there is not any smoke coming out of the left side ports.

    It is probably not Photoshopped but it sure as H... is staged. Lousy gun mount, shooting skeet? where are his shells? Total phoney like everything about this guy.

    I doubt that's even Odumbo's gun. I'll bet dollars to donuts someone loaned it to him for a photo op.

    OK- We know it was staged, we know he can't shoot, blah, blah, and blah. He is just trying to show how compassionate he is towards sportsman, hunters and the like. It is all BS. He is as compassionate as a rattlesnake in heat.

    I'm not a skeet shooter but I have a question.

    Doesn't shooting skeet usually require open chokes and shorter barrels / the pic of the great one appears to be a very long barrel, esp for skeet.

    Am I wrong in my way of thinking ?

    28" to 30" are the norm, some big guys shoot 32". Very rare to see anyone with 26" barrels.

    In his photo, he is wearing a tee shirt so it must be warm. Is he shooting black powder or is he just blowing smoke. Bill
