    Firerarms owned by Presidents

    This John Browning Model 1900, chambered in .32 ACP, was a striker-fired pistol built for concealed carry, which is exactly the use case for which Teddy Roosevelt applied it. By the way, his niece, FLOTUS Eleanor Roosevelt, also carried – a Smith and Wesson .38. http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/201...-s-presidents/

    Like you, all these presidents (and most of the others) proudly exercised their Second Amendment right. May it ever be thus.

    And then there was Ronald Reagan, who not only carried, but who actually used his personal defense weapon in defense of another.

    Love how the dailymail reported Reagan's gun as a "35mm" gun. That's one hell of a snubbie!

    Yep, shows what the antis know.

    I love the new avatar pic and it is very flattering of you. I really like the bow tie and sweater.

    Can I get back on the Christmas Card list?

    Reportedly Trump has at least a S&W snubbie and an H&K .45 and he used to carry regularly in NY.

    Eisenhower carried a Colt Detective Special issued to him by DoD. He turned it in when he left office.

    That's a beautiful piece. How much do you think it's worth?

    Not a US President, but Winston Churchill carried a gun for most of his life. He started with a .38 revolver, but after the second (or third?) assassination attempt during WWII, his bodyguard persuaded him to upgrade to a Colt 1911 in .45 ACP.

    Later in the article, they call it a 38 mm. I guess it kind of grows on you.

    Barack Obama only carries a gun when he goes back to Chicago for a visit, if he even goes at all.

    He would probably prefer to carry a water pistol everywhere else.

    He doesn't need a gun. He has Michelle to protect him. (Would YOU want to tangle with Michelle?)
