Our personal interest in firearms has always been very eclectic.

A few years ago, we saw pictures of a rifle that once belonged to President Theodore Roosevelt. It was a Winchester Model 1894 chambered in 30 WCF (Winchester Center Fire) also known as the 30-30 Winchester.

The rifle was on display at the Roosevelt Estate known as Sagamore Hill in Oyster Bay, New York. Rumors were that Roosevelt used it for dispatching vermin on the grounds, but as there were extremely few grizzly bears and mountain lions roaming the hills of Long Island at the time, the rifle was intended more for quiet target practice without disturbing the neighbors.
