America Remembers proudly introduces the Doc Holliday OK Corral Tribute Shotgun. This handsome Doc Holliday Tribute is a great way to remember this Western legend.
It’s hard to forget a man like Doc Holliday. In an era known for its colorful characters, hardly any have become much brighter than Doc Holliday. The Wild West was the golden age of lawmen and outlaws, with Doc Holliday managing to find his own comfortable spot somewhere in-between. When busting bad guys alongside Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday could get the job done, but if cheated in a game of cards, this man known for his wide brim hat could become judge, jury and sometimes, executioner. Even in the most cutthroat towns, people knew not to cross Doc Holliday.
Over the years Hollywood embraced his legend, adding to the romance as television and movies cast him as an eccentric gunslinger who dispensed quick wit with a slow drawl. But we might have remembered Doc Holliday as nothing more than a dapper, card-dealing scoundrel, if it weren’t for that legendary October afternoon in 1881 when Doc Holliday stepped out into the streets of Tombstone with the Earps and walked straight into American history.
Today, America Remembers is proud to honor the real man behind the legend with the Doc Holliday OK Corral Tribute Shotgun. The Tribute is a working recreation of a classic Old West 1878 double-barrel hammer shotgun, handsomely decorated with detailed scenes and portraits from this exciting time that continues to capture our imagination. The shotgun features functioning rebounding hammers, a walnut pistol grip stock and a steel buttplate. Craftsmen commissioned specifically for the project by America Remembers decorate each Doc Holliday Tribute in stunning 24-karat gold and nickel.
The Shotgun That Tamed the West
Though the legend of the gunfighter was written with the revolver, shotguns were just as important in taming the Wild West. Many a lawman relied on his trusty double-barrel shotgun, especially when facing a large, unruly crowd or in a confined area. With a shotgun, you didn’t have to be a sharpshooter to hit your target. You would be hard-pressed to find a lawman or outlaw who didn’t respect the stopping power of a hail of buckshot.
The bottom of the receiver features a portrait of Doc Holliday sitting at a card table, where he was known to spend endless hours. On the table in front of him are his chips, his whiskey, and his trusted single action revolver.
The left side artwork features Doc Holliday, clad in his familiar wide brim hat and frock coat, along with Wyatt, Morgan and Virgil Earp, walking through Tombstone with firearms at the ready. In the moments leading up to the showdown, legend has it that Wyatt gave Doc a chance to back out, saying, “This isn’t your fight, Doc.” To which insulted Doc Holliday replied, “That’s a hell of a thing for you to say to me.”
The right side artwork features the explosive moment that the OK Corral became history. No one is certain who fired first, but more than thirty shots rang out in about thirty seconds. When the smoke cleared, three men were dead. In the foreground you can see Doc Holliday, who is believed to have taken down Tom McLaury with a chest full of buckshot before drawing his pistol to fire on Billy Clanton. Even in the chaos of a gunfight, Doc Holliday was known to keep his wits. The shoulder stock features a detailed portrait of Doc Holliday from the Tombstone era.
