Largest guns & ammo reference guide, gun value guide (like Blue Book) and gun schematics & blueprints: www.FirearmsGuide.comThe name Wyatt Earp is synonymous with justice on the American frontier. Earp was a peace officer in various Western towns, including Dodge City, Kansas, and Tombstone in the Arizona Territory. He nevertheless found himself on the opposite side of the law on many occasions. Not surprisingly, Earp owned many firearms during his lifetime, including this Single Action Army. After his participation as a lawman in the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, a thirty-second altercation that has come to symbolize the struggle between legal authority and banditry on the American frontier, Earp was charged with and subsequently found not guilty of murder. Earp's reputation was tarnished during his lifetime, but accounts of his Western exploits after his death revitalized his image. Today, he is remembered as an icon of the American West.
