I didn't know that clay pigeons had feathers, nor did I realize that they are edible. :eek::D
Looks similar to the recipe for crow they use on Capitol Hill.
To back up President Barack Obama's statement that he goes skeet shooting regularly, which some Republicans questioned, the White House released this photo of Obama firing a rifle at Camp David in August. See more commanders in chief taking advantage of their right to bear arms.
Guys, if that's a rifle, then I'm Japanese.
Maybe someone should take out a full-page ad in some national venue explain the difference between a shot gun, a rifle, a pistol, a revolver, and all the way down the line! It would have to have pictures as well as words, though ...
A shot guns shoots 'shot' - or little pellets of different sizes. They also can shoot slugs or flechettes. Slugs are just like bullets, large hunks of lead. Flechettes are small darts.
When the shot or flechettes leave the barrel they are concentrated - as the go down range they spread out and make it easier to hit what you shoot at.
A shotgun slug is like a large bullet, it's used for large animal hunting.
A shotgun is 'loaded' by moving the foregrip back and forth. There are some old shot guns that use a bolt action method of getting a shell into the breech to shoot.
A bolt action gun is primed by grabbing a lever and moving it backwards to eject the old shell and place a new shell into position.
A rifle is named for the spirals cut into the barrel.
As the bullet leaves the barrel the rifling spins the bullet making it fly straighter - it's a long range weapon.
A revolver is a gun - like a six shooter - that the Cowboys used to use.
It's named for the cylinder that revolves to put a bullet into position to fire.
It doesn't eject empty cartridges.
A pistol, is a magazine fed gun that does eject spent shells, the magazine goes into the grip of the gun.
A magaine is usually a 'box' with a spring at the bottom that feeds the rounds into the chamber to be fired.
More often than not, the politicos talking about GC don't have a clue as to what they are talking about.
if I made a mistake somewhere, someone will correct me!
Richard, I know all that - I meant for the world's media to see and be quizzed on, so they don't make mistakes like calling the shotgun the president is holding a rifle!
One does not grow up in a family with a grandfather who was chief of police (retired) and a Dad who did Small Arms Repair in the Army without knowing about guns, the different kinds, weights, purposes and ammunition. And to never kid around with them, and other rules that were drilled into us before we were ever allowed to touch any!
" A magaine is usually a 'box' with a spring at the bottom that feeds the rounds into the chamber to be fired."
I thought a"magaine" was a very very bad headache.:D:D J/k
Now now, both of you!
A magaZine - either a box-shaped object with an internal spring that feeds the next round into the chamber of the gun, or a printed publication covering news of varying degrees of interest and accuracy - either definition can be used to give a migRaine to the person in question.
As can spelling mistakes and pedantic corrections!
I'll just leave this here.
