Heh, a Trump supporter claims he can shoot goodwell and Trump of all people TRUMP doesn't allow pictures to be taken down on the range, or come back with the targets to prove his gun-penis cred.

Yeah, nice fluff piece for the fans.

Big whoop. Kim Jong-il once shot a 34 for eighteen holes of golf, including an amazing eleven holes-in-one!

Or completely legit. If I were just getting in some practice time I wouldn't really want cameras and such either.

But haters gonna hate, so as you wish....

Well it's odd I didn't say that -- lots of folks shoot who aren't like me.

But hey, if that's what you want to believe I'm grooving for you!

I'm sure they weren't allowed to take photos so the guns wouldn't look so small in his huge hands.

One wonders why, if Trump indeed wants to cater to the gun crowd, he would not actually sanction and desire photos of himself mixing it up with the people, and the guns. There is no legitimate reason I can think of, to withold press on this "important" event. If a Presidential candidate visit is deemed un-pressworthy, there is something they want to hide, or surpess, possibly because they are embarassed that the press may play wrong with the general public. This is the Republican version of "show me those Wall Street transcripts".

So what? I shoot pretty well, go to the range once a month, yet I wouldn't waste my piss on the NRA.

You're not running for President of the United States. And if he touts his relationship with them and 2nd amendment fanatics, why lose the opprotunity to be photographed with them, in a very public way? Something stinks here, and it's not the fish on the dinner table.

It does not appear to have been a campaign event, but rather some private thing.

Not really any story here of any kind.

Paranoid much? Sure, he didn't get photographed, but he was there, the event went public. He's trying not to give the Clinton campaign a photo of him shooting a gun but he wanted to connect with gun owners. Jeez, it ain't that complicated.

IMO one reason it's cool because it's a presidential candidate who actually can handle a firearm well. It really should be a requirement for office...I'll have to have the Founders fix that once I get my time machine up and running.

Did you think Kerry was cool?

How about Obama?



Also we have no proof of his claim.

In fact I wonder just how many candidates shoot

http://www.weeklystandard.com/clinton-once-touted-her-own-ex...

Clinton it appears for one.

You miss my point completely. If he is proud of his relationship with the NRA, and proud to be a gun-toter, why would he be afraid of giving Clinton a pic of him shooting a gun??!! Either you are proud to shoot a gun, and don't care about being photographed doing so, or you are "afraid" it might send the wrong message to some voters. You can't have your cake and eat it too. No photos were taken because it would be fodder for the press, but it's hypocrisy to claim that you are all for the NRA and gun toters, then be afraid to be photographed with them, or as one of them.

Obama is a lefty. I read somewhere that five of the last six presidents have been left-handed.
