The term "Coach gun" was coined in 1858 when Wells, Fargo Company began regular stagecoach service from Missiouri to California and issued shotguns to its drivers for defense along the perilous 2,800 mile route. Doc Holliday used a 10 gauge coach gun to shoot Tom McLaury point-blank in the chest with buckshot during the Gunfight at the OK Corral in Tombstone, Arizona, on Wednesday, October 26, 1881
