    For this photo-op/propaganda-pic, "The One" is being more thin-skinned than usual.

    So basically, making fun of his holiness is now considered off-limits; this coming from the same crowd who routinely called GWB "Hitler" and worse.

    In the tradition of "don't tell me what to do..." I submit these couple dozen pictures for your pleasure:

    Elmer Fudd rides again!

    I doubt the stupidity exhibited by the White House will ever be forgotten by those not firmly attached to his .... er.... ah.... policies.:supergrin:

    "FORBIDDEN", "BANNED", or not. :rofl:

    "Calling All Shotgunners!" I have fired, and witnessed many shotgun blasts, (mainly while waterfowl hunting), and there's just something phony-looking about this photo. Don't know if its the strange looking shooting form; the seeming lack of recoil effect on the shooter or clothing; or that bizarre "smoke" emitting from the front, and side(!)of the barrels.

    I am no expert however, so hoping some of you that may be can chime in on the alleged authenticity of this photo.

    Thanks.

    My mossberg 500 bird gun is ported on the top of the barrel like that. I can see it happening. I don't see a need to fake the photo though. They could have run out on the back lawn and let him crank off a round.

    Maybe there are some other photo's out there of people shooting and at that exact moment too, then we could compare recoil effects.


    Here's a link to some pics of real shooters, and Barry, who is holding the shotgun very much like another non-shooter, kim kardashian.

    I just saw a HD picture of the said obama shooting pix on my big screen. The smoke is not coming out of the port holes, only centered over two or three holes in the center of the right side row ONLY.

    FAKE......its a fn FAKE

    The gun is a Browning Citori Model XS Skeet with Invector Plus extended choke tube on the top barrel and no choke tube on the bottom barrel. He is using the upper barrel for this shot.

    It appears that at the time the photo was snapped only the exhaust gas from the port holes on the right side of the barrel can be seen (along with the gas from the muzzle)- probably a matter of timing but it is possible the left side port holes on the upper barrel are gummed up- this is not unusual if not cleaned frequently especially if a rather dirty powder such as you may find in the cheaper trap/skeet loads..

    You can tell that the gun is not Obama's- most likely a gun kept at the facility for use by any guests. If it were Obama's personal gun, he would have had the stock fitted, as the length of pull is too long for a good fit on Obama- Browning trap and skeet guns come standard with a slightly longer length of pull than most.

    Why would only the left side ports be gummed up while the right side ports remain clear?

    Maybe whoever is responsible for maintaining it at Camp David did a half-ass job of cleaning the ports. Or maybe it was just a timing issue with the photo.

    Both unlikely.

    Both more likely than some lame-brained theory that they took a photo of Obama with Browning mounted to his shoulder and did a fantastic job of photoshopping in exhaust gasses but forgot to ps them in on the left side ports. But whatever theory floats your boat. If you hear galloping hoof sounds at Pimlico do you think horses or zebras?

    ps- I looked at the original full resolution of Souza's pic on flicker and zoomed in on the end of the barrel. My conclusion is the exhaust gas wasn't photo shopped in, the muzzle jump is evident, and there is evidence that some gas is also coming out of the ports on the left side of the barrel.

    More importantly, why do the BBLs on Elmer Fudd's shotgun bend downward and not UP?
