"Every man owes a portion of his time & his income to the business or industry in which he earns a Living".
One of Theodore Roosevelt's many quotes
His legendary exploits with a Winchester rifle are well documented and his trips to Africa are still talked about today. TR was also one of this country's most visionary presidents, his foresight in preserving this country's natural resources allows all of us the opportunity to enjoy them today. Just like TR's preservation of our natural resources, Turnbull Restoration is working hard to insure that the firearms that helped build this great country can, and will be enjoyed by future generations.
