Yesterday The Weekly Standard blog displayed a photo released by the White House purporting to show Obama at Camp David "shooting skeet". Accompanying the photo was this warning:
"This official White House photograph is being made available only for publication by news organizations and/or for personal use printing by the subject(s) of the photograph. The photograph may not be manipulated in any way and may not be used in commercial or political materials, advertisements, emails, products, promotions that in any way suggests approval or endorsement of the President, the First Family, or the White House."
Secondly, his line of sight is too low. Also, he's not leaning forward enough, his cheek is too tight to the stock and his stance is too narrow and he should be leaning forward from the waist.
In other words, this is a person who has hardly, if ever, shot a shotgun. Shooting all the time like this would make for a very bruised and sore cheek and shoulder regularly. So much for his "I shoot skeet all the time" load of BS.
Furthermore: There is also no sign of any recoil. The shotgun is a magnaported Browning Citori, so the blast from the top of the barrel would be correct, BUT, modern ammo does NOT smoke like that. That means that these are either black powder blanks, or the smoke is photoshopped. This is nothing more than a posed and possibly photoshopped photo-op to fool the fools."
