President Obama is a master troll.  He knew exactly how this would play out, to wit:

1. He mentions that he goes skeet shooting, which makes the derps foam at the mouth yelling "LIAR WHAR PROOF FARTBONGO"

2. He then issues a picture of himself skeet shooting, to which the derps then reply "THIS LOOKS SHOPPED 0BUMMER HATES GUNS"

He thus continues to have the right wing going nuts over stupid shiat, completely destroying their credibility to anyone outside that echo chamber.

Do you feel good about that post? You shoudn't. You're assuming he owns the gun. That he had to go out and purchase a fire, which as POTUS probably didn't happen.

As for background checks, I'm sure the FBI, CIA, NSA, and DHS have NEVER done a background check on the president. Nor would any of his opponents during any of the political races he has ever been through.

The POTUS is probably the most checked out person in society and here you are taking 'pot' shots at him like the 4th grader at the back of the bus telling his friends about how poorly the driver does, just because you spent $.75 playing Cruisin USA.

You're an unmitigated moron who makes your side of the control debate look stupider by your mere support. Go home.

To all you critiquing his form (and claiming his lack of it is evidence he's a liar), he never said he was good at shooting skeet. Also, regarding his low aim, realize that a lot of people conflate "skeet" with "clays". He may be shooting sporting clays. He grew up a poor, urban kid. There's not a lot of opportunity for expensive hobbies that require a relatively large land area far from developed areas when you're raised in the aforementioned environment. After that, he spent most of his adult life pursuing a career in politics, with the higher education and long hours required to reach that goal. There's not a whole bunch of time for that hobby -- or any, for that matter -- in that situation either.

"B-b-b-ut, he said, '...all the time'!" I eat steamed crabs "all the time". I do not have them all day, every day. It's an expression. You are well aware of this.

Excuse me, but I'm not entirely convinced that admitting you've smoked weed in the past would stop anyone from selling you a gun, provided you didn't get a felony over it. Anyway, he's smart. I'm more ok with him having a weapon than Billy Ray Jimbob down by the river.

Somehow I get the feeling that it doesn't matter what Obama does, you'll still walk into any consideration of him with that opinion predetermined.

Yes, that is his overriding personality trait.

No... that's just the lie you've told yourself over and over and over to justify your illogical distaste for anything and everything he does. It didn't even occur to you that Camp David would be equipped with incredibly nice shotguns for their skeet range... did it? You might also want to consider that it says a lot more about you than it does him when you say things like that. I hope you only say dumb things like that over the internet. I would hate to think you embarrass yourself in your everyday life by saying equally revealing nonsense.

I generally don't like his policies, and his attitude makes it that much worse


Oh, his attitude. How dare that black man be uppity. Why isn't he simpering and scrunching, telling everyone "Is all right, don't hurt me, massa"? Half the white presidents were the same way, but this black man has the audacity to have an "attitude"!

Never shot at rabbit trap? Or a low/high setup?

Rabbit trap is pretty challenging. It basically rolls a target along the ground which then bounces occasionally. It simulates the movement of a rabbit. I have a buddy with a skeet shooting course that had setups to simulate all kinds of animals.

Oh I thought we'd already agreed that he wasn't actually skeet shooting.  I thought we were just talking about the effort it took to pose the particular shot.  I believe that it took effort even for a pro to get that shot.  Actually I believe a pro would most definitely have taken several takes to make sure he got a shot like that.  The point is though that it's not an organic action shot.  He posed for it.


We?
In lala land, the President is really willing to work in a half hour of his schedule to pose a gun picture to impress the duck out of old farts out there who are into skeet shooting. Why stop at skeet? Why not a rifle range and paper targets ... Do they not have those in LaLand? So much easier to stage indoors. No, he must fake skeet! Because...skeet!

amquelbettamin: Actually very good skeet form. He has had lessons clearly.


I know everyone on Fark is an expert, but you're way off here. I've shot competitive skeet for decades... His form is atrocious.

1) He's leaning back (or at least not leaning forward... can't drive with the legs the way he's standing).
2) His legs are straight upright. As a lefty, his right leg should bear 80% of the weight and the left leg locked.
3) Gun is too high on his shoulder.
4) Gun is far outside of the shoulder pocket. He'd have a horrible bruise on his left shoulder and bicep if he shot more than a few rounds like this.
5) Right hand too far forward-- no ability to control the gun this way.
6) Right hand too far underneath gun-- should be out the the side.
7) Left elbow should be parallel with shoulder, not hunched down like that.
8) Draw a line from the eye forward-- all he can see is the back of the receiver.

Someone with a single skeet lesson from a qualified instructor would have much better form. Someone who "shoots skeet all the time" wouldn't make most of those mistakes.

Thanks for asking the question that totally seriously 100% absolutely matters.  Only a regular skeet shooter should be allowed to ask for recommendations that would prevent 20-year-olds from shooting two dozen people in an elementary school.

You are pretty selective about things.  Do understand the mechanics of skeet shooting?  You follow the clay.  JFK was at rest waiting for the release.  Obama was supposedly shooting at it.
My camera doesn't have a motor drive.  My camera is a Nikon D7000 dslr.  I can shoot 6 fps.  Yet getting that exact shot would take more than 1 take.  I would guess 10 to 20 to get it that clean.


Yea, because skeet shooting is only ever done with one shot and the President of the US employs a photographer who sucks at catching shots with cheap ass equipment.

This just gets on my nerves.  Yes if your very lucky you could catch that shot with dslr in one take.  You could get the colors all balanced and catch that the exact moment when the gun goes off.  You won't though.  If you tried to reproduce that shot or even get a usable one you will invest several hours in prep and retakes.
So can we all accept that that a staged shot?  It seems like we are arguing how long it took to stage.

But if you prefer, I'm prepared to switch over entirely to jokes about the stench of fear-urine that wafts around "gun enthusiasts." Not gun owners as a whole, or people who have shot a gun at a range, or people who carry guns as part of their jobs, or people who use guns to shoot deer. People who buy guns as protection against things guns can't actually shoot, like sadness or anger or political movements or the entire government of a country of 300,000,000 people.

"Yes, in fact, up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time," Mr. Obama said.

No one believed that.  Jesus read the times article from today with open eyes:
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/03/us/politics/obamas-skeet-shooting- co mments-draw-fire.html?_r=0

He's never mentioned any of this before to anyone.  Yet today we have a poised picture of him pretending to shoot skeet.  All I know is he wasn't aiming at a clay in that picture.  I don't think it's skeetgate.  If he wants to be a politician it's on him.  Just don't cry too hard when someone calls you out.


So if he mentioned that he goes fishing all of the time in an interview, and later the White House produced photos of him fishing, would you think he was lying then because he never mentioned that he fishes before and there have never been any pictures released of him fishing?

How hard is it to believe that a President would use a recreational facility at the Presidential vacation compound?

So they staged a photo of Obama shooting a shotgun in in Aug 2012 just in case one day they would need it to prove that he has fired a gun before? What other photos have been staged just in case he has to pander to some group sometime in the future? Did he stage photos of himself fishing just in case he has to pander to fishermen one day? Or maybe he staged a photo of himself playing video games in case he has to pander to the basement dwellers one day?

How are you going to argue with somebody that insist on saying somebody else is lying when they can't even provide any proof or any valid reason that that person is lying?

He was asked a question about whether or not he has ever fired a gun. He said he has and he shoots skeet when he is at Camp David. You claim he is lying because no pictures have ever surfaced of him shooting skeet. The White house produces a picture of him shooting skeet or trap, or what ever at Camp David. You still scream that he is lying because of derp. How is somebody supposed to form an argument against that?

3StratMan: Nice try, propaganda machine, but that picture is fake. Let's count the ways: 1- target is level to the ground, not in the air as a skeet target would be;2- shotguns do not emit a plume of smoke from the side of the barrel end; 3- shooter's straight up and down stance... shooting a shotgun demands a aggressive stance, leaning forward into the shot to brace for recoil- Obama is not THAT MUCH of a badass to fire without leaning forward; with his physical size he would end up falling backward with that upright stance after he fired; 4- no sign of any recoil movement at all.


1. He is shooting at a target coming out of the low house (if you know anything about skeet you know what that is) or he is actually shooting trap (most journalist and trolls dont know the differnce between trap, skeet, sporting clays or pistol shooting)
2. Yes they do. It is called porting. A series of holes are drilled into the barrel to compensate for barrel rise.
3. So he doesnt know how to properly shoot a shotgun. He doesnt know how to be the president either.
4. You dont know what his stance was before he pulled the trigger. So how can you tell there was no movement?

See this is why they pushed the photo.  Because people who don't like guns are ignorant about things.  Do you see smoke in that pic?  Do you see the gun on his shoulder?  No.  He's bringing the gun up to fire the shot.  If the guy in pic was actually shooting at that moment the kickback would have tore his armpit up and blown the gun out his hands.

Never been quail or dove hunting?  It is completely possible to make a shot off kilter, holding your gun all weird, on uneven ground without "tearing up your armpit" or the shotgun "blowing out of your hands".  In fact, most shooting in a bird hunting in a trip is super fast paced, where you don't get the luxury to line everything up.  The only people that get that luxury are rich guys that have birds released in front of them, but still manage to shoot their friends in the face.


And THIS for crissake. Used to hunt partridge as a kid. If you don't get the farkers on the ground or in the first second or two of flight, they're gone. They stick to pretty thick underbrush so lining one up on the wing would be very rare. Incidently when they take off suddenly they make this trmendously loud and sudden explosion of noise. If you're not expecting it, good luck getting a shot off at all...

We don't expect you to understand. Obama released this picture to convey that his views on firearms could not posdibly be extreme since he too enjoys a bit of skeet. Unfortunately, his views are extreme, and sport has nothing to do with the second amendment.

And his form is fine for the gun he is using. If he shot a whole lot he should modify the stock to fit him better. But, the lump of flesh above the stock indicates he was correctly seating his cheek and jaw to line his view along the barrel. He looks like an occasional shooter who has has good instruction, but could use a slightly better fitted stock to his frame.

He is just a elitist douche for trying to ban types of guns he doesn't like.

Never been quail or dove hunting?  It is completely possible to make a shot off kilter, holding your gun all weird, on uneven ground without "tearing up your armpit" or the shotgun "blowing out of your hands".  In fact, most shooting in a bird hunting in a trip is super fast paced, where you don't get the luxury to line everything up.  The only people that get that luxury are rich guys that have birds released in front of them, but still manage to shoot their friends in the face.

jake_lex: President Obama is a master troll.  He knew exactly how this would play out, to wit:

1. He mentions that he goes skeet shooting, which makes the derps foam at the mouth yelling "LIAR WHAR PROOF FARTBONGO"

2. He then issues a picture of himself skeet shooting, to which the derps then reply "THIS LOOKS SHOPPED 0BUMMER HATES GUNS"

He thus continues to have the right wing going nuts over stupid shiat, completely destroying their credibility to anyone outside that echo chamber.


This. Plus lol.

Gecko Gingrich: He grew up a poor, urban kid.


I think of all the claims made about Obama's upbringing this is the one that is the most widely accepted despite not being true. His mom wasn't a poor single mother. She was upper middle class. She remarried when Obama was 2 so all he ever knew was her being married. He grew up well enough off in an area where his parents had enough cash to live comfortably. Sure he was no Romney but he wasn't a Clarence Thomas by far.

Laughing and mocking =/= having a great time at your expense.


What's amusing to me is so often there are times when the right-wing is mocking or laughing at something and the fark headline is "right-wing outraged about...".

So, from lookingb at this thread...the intelligent criticisms from this thread can be refuted with
- that type of gun releases s one out the side of the barrel
- he had just fired causing him to lean back slightly
- he was firing at rabbit targets or the slope of the range would change his aim

I dunno...this is getting close to the "when you open a picture in photoshop, that's what happens to the text" critiques of his birth certificate.

I love that so much effort is being put into this. It really makes you guys look sane and not completely nutjob ish.

Odds are, whom ever taught him how to shoot was a tactical rifle shooter, that's why his elbows are down. He may also be firing reduced load rounds.

Giltric: cameroncrazy1984: Giltric: Why is he skeet shooting at such a flat angle.

Looks like they got a shotgun and told him to shoot it so they caould take some pictures to prove his claim.

....in August.

OH DEAR GOD HE REALLY DOES HAVE A TIME MACHINE

can you prove it was August?

I've read alot of things on the internet...should I believe all of it?

I'd wager they took the picture between the time he claimed he shoots all the time and the day the pic was released.


Yeah. He mentioned this last week. Care to explain why the grass is so green behind him when there has been snow and rain all week in Maryland? Additionally, it's been pretty cold in MD this week too, why is he in shirtsleeves?

bigbaddoc: Red Shirt Blues: bigbaddoc: 1) He's leaning back (or at least not leaning forward... can't drive with the legs the way he's standing).

Ok.......suppose he was leaning forward and due to his light weight the recoil of the gun pushed him back into the vertical just as the photographer captured the shot thus giving us the impression of him not leaning forward. Back an to the left.

Little kids with proper form can lean forward and not get knocked backwards. The only people who get knocked backwards are those who either start too vertically or are leaning back trying to balance the gun because they are too weak to hold it up (and he's not doing that... his back is straight, not bowed).


Actually being sarcastic there...........

I took a shotgun course while living in Houston. The guy made me fire 50 rounds from a 12 gauge. All slug rounds due to range rules. I never wanted to fire a shotgun again. Right shoulder all purpley, red and yellow.

JohnnyC: Frank N Stein: Aiming pretty low to be shooting skeet.

Never shot at rabbit trap? Or a low/high setup?

Rabbit trap is pretty challenging. It basically rolls a target along the ground which then bounces occasionally. It simulates the movement of a rabbit. I have a buddy with a skeet shooting course that had setups to simulate all kinds of animals.



I was just about to make the same point.  Also, in my experience, noob shooters tend to follow the target until they reach a point of 'having to take a shot'.  I could see him, like many inexperienced shooters, following the clay along its entire arc and taking the shot a the 'last second'.  Indecision on when to take the shot is very common to inexperienced shooters.

Nice try, propaganda machine, but that picture is fake. Let's count the ways: 1- target is level to the ground, not in the air as a skeet target would be; 2- shotguns do not emit a plume of smoke from the side of the barrel end; 3- shooter's straight up and down stance... shooting a shotgun demands a aggressive stance, leaning forward into the shot to brace for recoil- Obama is not THAT MUCH of a badass to fire without leaning forward; with his physical size he would end up falling backward with that upright stance after he fired; 4- no sign of any recoil movement at all.

I was thinking the same thing, but he might be around the high point with the land down range sloping down in elevation. It seems a bit odd to do, but I've seen a few ranges like that before. Especially ones that weren't landscaped specifically for just shooting.

I'm sure he can produce his mental health background check on demand - just like he's calling for everyone else - right liberals? Yeah, we didn't think so. Maybe he got a prescription for anti-anxiety drugs at some point in his life, like say after the death of a parent. No gun rights for you citizen. Maybe he was prescribed wellbutrin for his smoking cessation, which is also used to treat depression. No gun rights for you citizen. He has said that his father suffered from alcoholism and depression. No gun rights for you citizen. He has publicly admitted to using illegal drugs, that horrible destroyer of lives, marijuana. No gun rights for you citizen. Surely he's practicing for himself what he's preaching to the rest of us, right liberals?
