Obama Fake Gun Photo
Stop Wasting Money ^ | 2/2/2013 | Warren Redlich

Posted on 02/02/2013 3:33:36 PM PST by wredlich

After a mini-controversy about a claim from President Obama that he shoots clay pigeons at Camp David, the White House released a photo of “Obama” shooting a $2500 Browning Citori shotgun. Problem: It doesn’t look like the President’s watch. And that leaves aside why the President is shooting a fancy Japanese-made gun instead of a down-to-earth Mossberg or Remington.

Because it ain’t his gun. To the best of my knowledge that particular model of Citori was produced from 1995 to about 2008.

Plus, a Mossberg 500 with that moving slide thingy is probably too complicated for the boy king.

Here in this pic of Obama boarding Marine One for Camp David that afternoon, he is seen wearing his "other" watch:

Plus he didn’t pee himself when he fired. Then too, where’s the recoil? Or don’t 28ga shotguns recoil ...

A compass in the stock and a thing that tells time is more his style, except for the 200 shot magazine.

Obama is fake so it doesn’t really matter if the photo is fake or not.

The shooters skin is lighter than Obama’s.

The arm is more muscular than Obama.

He shoots like a girl.

The watch is a very weak stretch.

OTOH, I’d bet that there isn’t a member of the President’s Secret Service detail who could positively identify that shooter as Obama in that picture. Too much of the face is hidden.

Could be any left handed mulatto.

If ya don’t like his shotgun you dang sure won’t like mine. If Mossberg or Remimgton made a half way decent O/U or SxS I’d have one but they don’t so I’ll stick with my Winchester and Beretta O/U’s.

“If ya don’t like his shotgun you dang sure won’t like mine.”

My favorite is my old SKB Model 800. Wonderful shotgun,,,, made in Japan. Got it for a song from my cousin who married an idiot lib who wouldn’t allow any guns in the house. Their office is a “Gun Free” zone.

Hmm, yeah, forgot about the .410 - it’s remarkable how stupid his handlers are. Aren’t there people around him that knows anything about skeet shooting? The picture yells fake, setup, phoney. Bet it’ll go viral just like “You didn’t do that”

Have a couple SKBs, they made an excellent product. Unfortunately after over 100 years the factory went under. SKB America (Omaha) is trying to get production restarted somewhere else.

I didn’t know that! It’s too bad, because they’re wonderful shotguns. I had heard they discontinued the 800, and had so many requests, that they restarted production. Mine is quite a beautiful piece, probably late Sixties, early Seventies. I’ll have to check the serial number. All I can say is that my scores rose immediately upon first use.

Yes, as well as his shirt.

Apparently, he had to change into his skeet clothes.

LOL.

Those don't appear to be mom jeans either. And who wears dark shakes like that when they're shooting (or is that common)?

Observations other than the watch:

Note the gas discharge the the right of the barrel. The barrel must have been ported to reduce recoil.

Note the shiny object at the muzzle of the top barrel. What is it? It is a bore reducing sleeve? If so it must have been ported just like the barrel.

No, it is probably not his gun. It was probably a fixture at Camp David, unless it was just a prop for the photo shoot.

Many have noted there is no apparent recoil.

Many have noted that he does not appear to be looking down the barrel.

Yep, the photo is revealing of Obozo.

SKB USA may not have records on when yours was made, but they do carry parts if you need them (not likely the way these were made)

We had 2 Browning Citori’s. A 20 gauge and a 12 gauge for sporting clays as well as our Beretta 391 autoloader. We got rid of the Brownings to make another purchase of a liberation weapon. Kept the Beretta.

Notice in the pic of Obooboo with his gun only one choke showing. He should have a choke in each tube and there is too much smoke coming out the end of that barrel. He has the gun way too high on his shoulder and he is not in a shooter’s stance. This pic was so photoshopped its total BS.

What’s that skeet doing sitting still out there for him? LOL!!

The only time I went sheet shooting, I took a $100 Revelation pump shotgun. I got a lot of looks down their noses, but I think I shot pretty well.

$2500 for a sheet shooters is a cheap gun. Some of those guys have $20,000 Italian shotguns.

Most of that has already been noted but what I’m not seeing is the back fence. The skeet range at Camp David is circular and goes from house to house. If he’s on station either that wall or the High House should be to his right. the background in this picture is not from the skeet range at Camp David.

Google shows the fence to still be there.

Slim,
Thanks for the info! I’ll give them a shout and see if they can date it.

“not likely the way these were made”
Abdo-lutely true! It’s still as tight as when I bought it, after having thousands of rounds run through it. And,,,, it’s beautiful!

Had to sell my Dad’s Krieghoff 4 barrel set when he passed. Hated to do it. Detwiller, Koloch (spelling on both?) Lots of Gold. An amazing set. But by that time, value had dropped from $22,000 to about $15,000, as everyone had gone to tubes.

I think they’re so obsessed with maintaining the “Potemkin Village” that is Obama, that they lose sight of the details. He is the supreme exemplar for the Empty Suit. To our extreme detriment, there is a puppet master behind the village bent on our destruction. sd

Dockweiler made some beautiful K32’s... I’ve seen a few up close.

Yeah, tubes make a lot of sense, but those 4 barrel sets are just classy. I know a couple guys who still shoot them.

I switched from skeet to sporting a couple years ago, having a sporting range open 6 miles from my house made the decision easy.

Still like shooting skeet with the .410 though.

” hell of a quail gun.”

Oh! I’ll bet! Funny story;
Went to my Dad’s club for the annual dinner. They had an Annie Oakley trap shoot. I had my 1100. I’d been Goose hunting the day before, and forgot to put on the Trap barrel. Left that long goose barrel on. Well, every time we moved back, I had a greater advantage. Shot 94 straight, but lost to my insurance man! But I’ve seen him shoot 200 straight at Skeet. He quit shooting because, “It became boring.” Sheesh!

OK, thanks for that. I know nothing about Camp David.

I do know that Obozo Lies, like all Commie Despots. And he serves the Father-of-Lies.

He recently again took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution. He is a Traitor to this nation.

His past is hidden. The story of his past is totally conjured. Created out of whole cloth. All lies.

They probably didn't use this picture because it shows Obama has a real preference for high capacity magazines, or “clips” as they refer to them at the white house.

Does anybody know where the original is posted? I didn’t dig deeply at Whitehouse.gov- but it would be interesting to check the exif data on the original image to see if it is *real* recent.

It’s Obama, but the photo is staged and fake. Here’s why.

1. Look at how he’s holding the shotgun, his eyes are below the plane of the barrel.

2. Look at the timing of the photo. The gun has just been fired by miliseconds. Note the obvious velocity of the discharge out of the barrel while the magnaport “smoke” is coming out at a much lower velocity. Sorry, but the porting will be expelling gas at the exact same velocity as the end of the barrel.

3. He’s not a shooter. If he was, his posture would be different and his shoulder weld to the stock would be lower and tighter.

Fake photo is a fake just like the idiot holding it. He’s no shooter.

Bwaa! Not me! Wasn’t good enough. My favorite for squirrels though. Although the Dan Wesson .22 with the long barrel and scope made it a lot easier to clean them. Broke a couple teeth on shot I missed during cleaning.

A laughable photo shoot staged by people who have no clue about skeet shooting or shooting in general. This is as big a joke as the photo of Michel Dukakis driving the tank. The photo reminds me of those painfully staged photos of North Korean leader Kim Jung-un.

I think it’s hilarious that Obama’s handlers posed him with a girl’s (.410/28 ga.) Japanese gun. Skeet shooting, my A$$. Typical Obama lying, deception, spin...BULLSHIT!!
