    Shooting Sports Enthusiast… cool that he likes guns, but doesn’t look like he shoots much. Notice the low/crossed thumbs in pic 6 and looks like he’s cocking his head to get to the sites as well.

    • Drew Coleman

      Needs to work on his stance a bit.

      • Harry’s Holsters

        That’s the first thing I noticed. But it appears better than most of our leaders would shoot.

    I love how GI Joe is in head to toe tactical body shaping garments but cant go to without his umbrella bearers.
    The sun gets hot doesnt it, Mary?

    • Johnsmyname

      The umbrellas are to keep him cool so that his tactical sweat bands don’t get too clammy. 🙂

      • TheNotoriousIUD

        Looks like hes been operating the tactical waffle maker.

      Just what I wanted to see after the Germany mass murder at Christmas… A muslim with a gun. How about running an article showing Trump shooting at a picture of Obama? Now that is something I would recommend, up vote and forward.

      • TheNotoriousIUD

        We don’t condone political killing here. If you want to fight put on a uniform.

        • TonysTake ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵀʳᵘᵐᵖ

          When did they let you out of the mental institution? By the way, I put on a uniform every day and defend the public against nuts like you who equate target shooting with political assassination. Stuff a sock in it snowflake.

          • TheNotoriousIUD

            Get shot and talk to me.

          • TonysTake ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵀʳᵘᵐᵖ

            My job is not to get shot. What is your point, snowflake? Spit it out!
            Did you wander into a bullet or wth?

        The US has been committing mass murder in Serbia, Libya and Iraq. It just destroyed Syria on behalf of the Saudis.

      I don’t know, do you see the look on left-umbrella-guy’s face? I think I’m more frightened of him than any of the dudes in camo. That man looks like he has both SEEN things, and DONE things.

  • Joseph Goins

    That’s one match were you don’t want to break the 180º plane.

    • Johnsmyname

      Talk about SOL, you’d be DQ’ed and DOA’ed and the same time. LOL

  • The former President of Ecuador, León Febres-Cordero, was an IPSC shooter and even showed up at major matches in the US during his term of office.

  • TimmyStrick

    As cool as it is that he shares our passion and participates in the shooting sports, why won’t he let his fellow countrymen enjoy the same rights?

    • Bob

      Ummm….. because hat is typical for the ruling elite across the world.

    • Nicholas C

      They do but only a select few. Like a few hundred thousand. And the guns are very expensive. Also you only get one. Ever.

    • Ominae

      That’s because the anti-firearm laws were kept by them after Malaysia got independence from the British. In the 1800s, they had a problem with Sultans who had no qualms using guns to settle disputes.

  • Bill

    Nice table cover.

  • CharlesH

    I can’t take those soldiers seriously with those berets on.

  • Ghostdog

    Huh, A Perfumed-Prince who loves shooting. Interesting in a country with such strict guns laws.
