    In as much as Putin was trained KGB, I don't doubt he can shoot and shoot well. I glanced at the article the other day. No wonder Obama was leery of him. He makes 2 Obama's. and then some.

    Still KGB mentally. Watch his right arm when he walks.

    Is that an S&B scope in that picture?

    I thought he looked pretty comfortable behind the rifle.

    So did I think he looked right at home. Didn't look at the scope but it could have been an S&B or maybe a Swaro.

    The Soviet Union has some very technologically advanced stuff. Take a look at their nuclear powered ice breakers. for instance. Cruise to the North Pole in complete comfort and break through 20 foot thick ice. Amazing power. Bunch of You Tube vids on their nuclear powered ice breakers. Everyone has their'accidents' though. The Kursk disaster and Chernobyl come to mind right away but we had the Challenger explosion so no one is perfect, especially when it comes to complex systems and man's intervention.

    I have a lot of respect for Putin. He's not going to be intimidated by anyone and he rules with an iron hand. I'd like to see that kind of forcefullness in this country's politics. Won't say anymore as this isn't a political forum... He looked just fine with the rifle.

    stock looks like a scar knockoff.

    kind of disappointed that Putin wacked his nose then ejected a live round. I expected better from CNN's public enemy #2.

    This isn't the forum to discuss politics on, maybe the politics of shooting but not political politics.

    Have a nice day.

    Trump should trump this...... I'd love to see an American president back up the second amendment in a big way! Maybe banging steel with a custom, made in the USA rifle at 1000 yards...... or would that be too "my bombs bigger than your bomb"?
