I really couldn't care less if Obama shot skeet or not. The photo released by the White House shows that this is probably the first time this man has ever fired a shotgun, much less shot a round of skeet. However, it does show something blatantly obvious - he doesn't appear to be standing at a shooting station at the Camp David skeet range. Below is a photo from the UK Daily Mail of the Camp David skeet range. See any differences?

Here’s the FACT abotu that photo op- He did that so that he now gets to say “I’m enactign htese gun laws to ‘MAKE IT FAIR FOR EVERYONE- AND BECAUSE I’m SUCH A SACRICER MYSELF, EVEN I’m GOING TO BE AFFECTED BY the NEW LAWS”
Typed in cps because we are goign to hear a LOT about ‘fair for everyone’ arguments by the left AS they take away our rights
And don’t most skeet go up? Is he shooting at the skeet launcher?
I’m hoping that you’re either dsylexci or posting from a phone...
Why does the link go to a photo, rather than the article?
From the photo From the link, I see a skeet range circa 1965. Judging by the dress of the folks.
But, I am not discounting the fakiness about the obama pic.
Is that not JFK holding the shotgun?
It looks like it.
I am sure the scenery and background have changed a bit since then.
Joe Kennedy in the white shirt?
Pre-Nov. 22, 1963. That's Jack Kennedy shooting. That's probably Jackie Kennedy sitting on the bench, but for the life of me I can't explain why she has 4 legs!
Close, but, I’m pretty damned sure the guy firing the shotgun died in Nov 63!!!
Any idea why the guy in the old photo is aiming horizontally not upward? Lots of electrons have been inconvenienced with comments about how barry could not possibly been on a skeet shoot due to the angle of the shotgun.
Hey skeet geniuses, talk to me.
The scenery may have changed, but there are a few things on a skeet range that never change. Notice the walkway around the shooting stations, and the stations themselves. There are none in Obama’s picture. And, I doubt the fence would be gone. It would be replaced, but not torn down. It serves as a noise barrier.
I believe that is Kenny O’Donnell dressed in black.
the shooter in the pick is not actively shooting. You start at each station ‘aiming’ and then react when the target comes out of the house.
You would probably have a higher angle when the trigger is pulled.
In skeet, you shoot at targets coming from a “high house” and a “low house.” You could theoretically be shooting at a variety of angles. However, Obama’s photo shows no artifacts that you would see standing at a skeet station. It looks like he is standing in someone’s back yard.
He is waiting for the release then, he will follow the target, aim slightly ahead and squeeze the trigger.
The gentleman in white is actor David Niven.
