Obama Acknowledges He Practiced Shooting With The Secret Service

The five female members of Texas Christian University’s national championship rifle team got a shout out from Obama on Monday evening at the NCAA sports champions celebration at the White House; “We’ve got the sharpshooters from the TCU rifle squad. Where are they?” asked Obama as the team members, standing near the camera risers, screamed. “I think that they may be able to give the Secret Service a run for their money.”

Obama told the TCU team members that he, too, practiced shooting with a rifle. “He said he practiced with the Secret Service,”

I don’t know he practices often, but it’s interesting to hear him acknowledge that he has shot with the Secret Service. Regardless, that is about the only cool thing I’ve ever heard him say.

Some hilarious stuff from Reddit user BattleHall:

  • President Obama is anti-handgun… because he knows that a handgun is only good for fighting your way back to your rifle.
  • Obama’s deep, dark secret isn’t that he’s a Muslim, it’s that he’s a gun nut. He has a prayer rug, but it’s embroidered with the image of John Moses Browning.
  • Obama scoffs at the 9mm vs. .45 ACP debate; instead his CCL authorized a tactical nuclear strike.
  • Sometimes, when he’s bored, Obama sends Sarah Brady anonymous gift wrapped packages containing a bottle of Hoppe’s No. 9.
  • After the election, he let everyone freak out and start buying up ammo because he was still sitting on a pallet of corrosive Bulgarian .380 that he got roped into buying at the Knob Creek shoot back in the 90’s, and he’s been trying to unload it for years.
  • In exchange for letting her plant an organic garden at the White House, Michelle has to let Barack keep his prized Dillon XL 650 in the West Wing; no single stage for him, he’s a progressive.

You know what the 1st Rule for a Gunfight is:

  1. Bring a gun. Preferably, bring at least two guns. Bring all of your friends who have guns.

“So Barack, who’d you bring?”

“The United States Marine Corp.”

“That’ll do…”

I guess it would not be unheard of that the POTUS would receive some basic firearms instruction from those that were tasked to guard him “just in case” an attempt was made on his life and he had to defend himself…seems logical..

Yea, sounds like a good idea to me too. It would be neat to hear more information on what he shot, and at what distances. It might even be surprising to find out he may have been taught drills on what to do if the gun malfunctioned etc.. I guess the secret service is probably pretty guarded (for good reason) about that kind of stuff though.

Are you sure that wasn’t the Marine Corpse?



Admin (Mike) September 16, 2010 at 08:02 pm

ugh.. not only once, but he actually said it that way twice. Sad.

I totally want a prayer rug of JMB (blessed be his name)
