  •  It's a double (over and under), a good one too (18+ / 0-)

    That looks like a very nice double barreled shotgun.  That particular style is called an over and under because the barrels are oriented that way.  Look at the figure (pattern of the wood grain) in that stock.  It's a box lock, break action, meaning that the gun "breaks" in the middle allowing the shells in each chamber to be removed and replaced after each shot.  I am guessing that it is a good American product, not one of those fancy Italian doubles that Cheney used for his miserable excuses for a hunt.

    There are several games involving clay targets.  Clay pigeons are used in skeet, trap, and sporting clays, any one of which might have the President pointing the gun that way as he fires depending on the station and the flight of the target.
