Who rests their face against the butt of the rifle like that?
If that's a real picture, and his face is pressed against the back of the rifle like it is shown, I would expect to see him with a fat bruise on his
No, it's almost right. Your cheek SHOULD be against the stock. I didn't know he was a lefty, though.
His mount is a bit wrong, though, the shotty is not fit to him very well. You'd think the prez could get a custom build - all my sporting clay shotgun
stocks are modified to fit my arm/shoulder. In the photo, it's riding up a bit high and the stock length is a bit long for him.
He's also bringing his head down to the weapon instead of the weapon to his head - notice how he's got his neck sort of bent over? That'll throw you
Finally, and you can't tell exactly because of the sunglasses but from the wrinkles around his eyes, he seems to be trying to squint/close one eye.
That's another mistake. Also his stance is too tight, he needs to move that left foot away from his centerline about six inches.
edit to add: is he shooting open on the bottom barrel? The top barrel obviously has a screw-in choke. And I've never seen a round blow smoke like
that- if you get a really good photo, you can sometimes see pellets (or more likely, the wad) coming out but I've never seen smoke to that degree.
