NEWTOWN, Conn --(Ammoland.com)- After the White House released the now famous photo of President Obama firing a shotgun, NSSF offered the president some “constructive advice” on our blog.

And also pointed out that NSSF sponsored and oversaw the renovation of the skeet field at Camp David, where the photo was taken.

NSSF’s blog post has since been referenced everywhere from PBS to CNN to daily newspapers like the Hartford Courant here in Connecticut.

    1. The lie of this photo shopped picture is appropriate for the liar in the picture. Why is there no recoil as the gasses( supposidly) are already escapeing thru the ports? Notice the shoulder and no noticable movement and the head is still down on the stock.Another scheme of this liberal socialist administration foisted on the gullable public.

    2. ….and I love the yellow non-gun choke on the end of the barrel. A hot air gun for a hot air president.

      Duh why is there smoke coming from the front of a smokeless gunpowder rouind and also smoke coming out the barrel at 90 degrees to the shotfun (rifle) s the democraps called it. This is as fake as hilery saying she went hunting in Atkansas with a rifle. Dumb a$$ doesn’t know it is illegal to hunt with a rifle on open bodied waters in all states. But sahe wants to run for president. If she wins, we will become the USSA. But thank God I may be dead then. I only have a few years to live and will die of natural causes. Remember Soyent Green and Soyent Red. She may be eating me along with obozonation. Thank God for history repeating itself. The Donner Party lives on.

    8. With his gun level, he must be firing at the person releasing the clay pigeon. Gun stock too high on his shoulder. Would have kicked the hell out of him and probably hurt him. Not leaning into the gun would have knocked him even more. I have never seen smoke coming from a modern shotgun like this. They fire smokeless powder. He is sighting down the barrel like he is firing a rifle. You don’t do that with a shotgun. You point and fire. One fluid movement. At best, this was staged and brushed up. At worst he is an idiot with guns and should not be allowed to touch one. But, we already knew that.

      where’s the ejecting shell? must be behind the smoke (and Mirrors). He’s looking at his thumb.

    10. LOL this is so photoshop’d. Just google “skeet shooting” and you’ll see dozens of pictures of people actually skeet shooting, and they don’t look like that. I have a picture of a family member skeet shooting and they are aiming above the horizon and their back is arched. Also the butt of the gun is lower. If he’d fired a shotgun with the butt right there, it would have knocked his arm off.

      Also, if there’s any smoke from it discharging, it would be coming out of the breech, not the side of the barrel. I mean, unless they drilled holes in it hahahah. Idiots.
