WORLD FAMOUS "COACH GUN"!! If you've ever called "SHOTGUN!" getting into a car, this is where it all started. The Coach Gun received its moniker on the stagecoach runs of the Wild West, when outlaws and Indians targeted lonely coaches on long and uncertain trails through difficult and often hostile territory. The need for effective security and defense was clearly established, and stagecoach companies quickly implemented the use of guards to ride along side the driver carrying a weapon that allowed for some leeway in accuracy as they bounced along the bumpy trails. "Riding Shotgun" became known as a hard and sometimes fatal occupation. Non firing replica. Overall Length: 35"
