It reduces muzzle climb at the expense of reduced velocity. Neither effect is particularly significant in a shotgun.
What I would really like to know is why the shotgun has a visible choke only in the top barrel. That makes no sense for skeet. Neither does the fact that he’s got no vest and no extra ammunition.
This is (was) a staged photo op, no question in my mind.
Lol! Hubby and I agree that, based on this photo, it is CLEAR that Obama does not know how to hold a gun and that this was indeed staged.
Good catch! It's well worth a question at the next White House press briefing. Of course no one will ask it.
Why didn’t they get a Duck Dynasty guy out there to at least make this appear to be believable?
Oh wait, they’re white Christians who actually know how to shoot....
