Doc Holliday Style Shoulder Rig



Beaver News #67 – February 19, 2018

A client wanted to have a shoulder rig similar to the one that Doc Holliday made famous.

In Cowboy Action it’s not uncommon that we take on a persona, dress like that historic person and want to have the accessories that person had and made famous.

Who was Doc Holliday?
A dentist by trade, John Henry “Doc” Holliday (1851-1887) was a gunman and gambler and became a folk hero of the American West as the close friend of fellow gunslinger Wyatt Earp. Together they were the famous faces at the legendary battle of the West, the gunfight at the O.K. Corral.

As you know, our motto is 

You Dream it – We Make it!

If you have a hero in history or a hero from a movie (like this one we did last fall), let us know, we love making your dreams come true.

So check out this weeks video of the Doc Holliday Style Shoulder Rig that Mark made for this client.
