Teddy Roosevelt’s Little Thirty

The Winchester 30-30 (Winchester 1894) is an iconic gun, probably because of one particular man: Teddy Roosevelt. Of all the US Presidents, Theodore Roosevelt is perhaps my favorite. In his life, he did it all: author, rancher, big game hunter, explorer, military leader, police commissioner, Secretary of the Navy… Oh yeah, and POTUS. This article originally ran November 8, 2017. Most importantly, he was a shooter and fellow gun hoarder. His favorite rifles were those made by Winchester.

Because, male, female, or helisexual, a badass shooter is a badass shooter regardless of the plumbing on board.

Just the Tip: Understanding Ammunition

Ammunition is packaged in a cartridge, which has four parts: the primer, propellant, case, and projectile (the bullet). A cartridge is often referred to as a ‘round.’ Shotgun cartridges can also be called ‘rounds,’ or ‘shells.’ They are called ‘shotshells’ when they contain pellets instead of a slug or other projectile — but regardless of what you call it, there’s no such thing as a magic bullet.
