POTD: Manly Man’s Pocket Pistol – Theodore Roosevelt’s FN 1900 Pistol

Welcome to today’s Photo of the Day! Here we have a rather embellished and beautiful FN 1900 which was owned by Teddy Roosevelt. I have gone very far in-depth in a couple Curious Relics articles covering this firearm. In them, I mention Roosevelt’s FN 1900. This picture was found on Outdoorhub which happens to be our sister site and the author of its article reads below:

“When a Roosevelt family member made an appointment to bring in a handgun for the NRA Museum a few decades ago, the museum director gladly accepted. The new donation arrived with provenance indicating that the little FN M1900 chambered in .32 ACP was the very semiautomatic pistol Theodore Roosevelt kept in his bedstand while President. Many of Teddy Roosevelt’s firearms and outdoor-related artifacts are on display in both the NRA National Firearms Museum in Fairfax, Virginia and the NRA National Sporting Arms Museum at Bass Pro Shops in Springfield, Missouri.”
