How Presidents use to vacation

The favorite hunting rifle of President Theodore Roosevelt was a Winchester Model 1895 lever-action rifle in .405 caliber. It was this rifle that accompanied the former commander in chief on a 1910 safari in Africa, as well as Roosevelt’s 1915 expedition to Brazil to find the source of the Amazon River. Roosevelt used his .405 to hunt moose, bear and elk stateside, too.
