Obama shooting a Browning Citori Shotgun

President Barack Obama shoots clay targets on the range at Camp David, Md., Saturday, Aug. 4, 2012.

President Obama stated last week that he picked up shooting clay pigeons as a new hobby during stays at Camp David.  As a result of his comments, this photo was released by the White House as many in the press remained skeptical after President Obama stated that he did it all the time.

In this photo, President Obama is discharging a shotgun and is wearing proper eye and hearing protection.  He's sighting the shotgun properly and has decent form, so we can assume that he's had lessons or has been practicing.

On an email to the Washington Times, Travis Hall (CEO of Browning) identified the shotgun as a Browning Citori.  He described it as possibly a Citori 625 Sporting Golden Clays, adjustable comb, left hand, in 12 gauge retailing for $4,799.
