Is that a blast of choom dust blowing out the muzzle? Don't see the recoil effects either; any experts out there to verify that the recoil would show an uplifted barrel and a pushback at his shoulder given the "powder puff" in the air.
Spoke with my mother this evening... "THAT'S NOT HOW YOU HOLD A GUN!"
Perhaps our boy was shooting a .410 with blanks.
If the shotgun is ported -- which it appears to be -- you won't get much muzzle lift.
But again, skeet shooting is to the Second Amendment what Knights of Columbus bingo is to the First.
Certainly its a very light load, you'd damage your shoulder and face firing a real shotgun shell like that. And what's he shooting at? The guy operating the machine?
But its good enough to fool people who know nothing about guns and find them scary.
I've only fired a shotgun a couple of time, yet I look at that picture and think "Busted collar bone? Munged-up rotator cuff??"
Not that he was ever gonna pitch for the majors, anyway.(Or anyone else!)
He seems more like a catcher.
Ok, what is that light colored thing at the end of the uppper barrel? I would think both barrels would be identical.
Maybe a choke tube? The bottom one could be flush. You could have upper barrel as full or extra-full and the lower as IC or open.
Mushroom, that light colored thingy is a tampon. Obama was just warming it up before inserting it with that wood and steel applicator.
