Was Obama honest about going "skeet shooting all the time"?

As someone who knew Obama when we were both at the University of Chicago, I don't believe him at all that he likes to go skeet shooting all the time.  His extreme dislike for anything that had anything to do with guns just isn't consistent with his claim.  From Fox News:
Straight Shooter?   
Few people are buying President Obama's claim that he is a big fan of skeet shooting.    
The president was asked by the New Republic -- quote -- "Have you ever fired a gun?"  President Obama answered -- quote -- "Yes, in fact, up at Camp David we do skeet shooting all the time."    
New York Magazine called out the president's phrasing saying, that -- quote -- "...is how people usually talk about things with which they are not very familiar. Your grandma asks you if you 'do Twitter.'"   
The Washington Post looked at the president's past statements and found no mention of skeet shooting.   
It labels, curious, that the White House is refusing to provide evidence that the president has ever used the shooting range. . . .

I suspect that he also may have gone varmint hunting with Romney several times.

"Obama" and "honest" don't belong in the same sentence. He's a Marxist con artist, with which honesty has little to do, except on those rare occasions when his political goals and reality coincidentally align.

I noticed that a photo of Obama firing a shotgun has been released, yet I am not sure if this pic is real. For one, Obama is shooting real darn low for skeet. That and his stance is kinda wrong too.

Oh well, time will tell...
