Shoulder holsters are popular as concealed weapons holsters with law enforcement such as Detectives, FBI agents and other law enforcement agencies that wear a jacket over their shirts and do not wish to be conspicuously armed.  Shoulder holsters are designed to spread the weight of the gun across the shoulders making it more comfortable to wear than a belt holster.

Cochise Leather Company is proud of the quality, durability and value. Every shoulder holster is hand cut and made by David LaFlair in his Arizona leather shop If you have any questions about this please email or call us at 520-269-2542 during our normal business hours.

Doc Holliday was born John Henry Holliday on August 14, 1851 in Griffin, Georgia and he grew up there and in Valdosta, Georgia.  In 1870 he headed off to the Pennsylvania College of Dental Surgery where he graduated from in 1872.  He worked as an assistant to another dentist for a short period, then moved to Atlanta, Georgia and set up his dental practice. In 1873 however he was diagnosed with tuberculosis and he moved to the southwest where the dry climate could slow the progression of the disease.  He went in with another dentist and opened an office up in Dallas, Texas but didn’t do well due to his constant cough which his patient’s didn’t like.  He took up gambling and discovered it was much more profitable than dentistry.  He worked as a Faro dealer doing a little dentistry on the side in Colorado and Wyoming, getting in knife fights and other altercations.  He moved back to Texas  where he met Mary Katharine Horony aka “Big Nose Kate” and began a long term relationship with her and met Wyatt Earp whom he became good friends with when he helped Wyatt out in a confrontation at the Long Branch Saloon where Holliday was playing cards.  Frequently getting in fights Doc as he was now known by became quite adept with both knife and gun.  

The west was getting civilized though; towns like Dodge City were getting respectable and didn’t welcome rowdy saloons, gamblers and gunslingers.  When the Earp brothers told Doc about Tombstone he packed up his bags and arrived in the Arizona Territory in September 1880, the Earp’s having been there for almost a year and he quickly became entangled in the local politics and violence of the silver-mining boom town.  This and his friendship with the Earp’s eventually led to the infamous shoot out at the OK Corral where the Clanton’s and other members of the Cowboys had a gunfight with Wyatt Earp, Virgil Earp, Morgan Earp and Doc Holliday. In retaliation the Ike Clanton and the Cowboys murdered Morgan Earp and seriously wounded Virgil Earp. This caused Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday and some others to illegally go after the gang and they succeeded in killing several of them throughout different areas of present day Cochise County, Arizona.   Managing not to be jailed for these events Doc Holliday shook the dust of Tombstone from his heals and headed to Colorado, initially going to Leadville where the high altitude caused him trouble with his breathing.  He became heavily dependent on alcohol and laudanum to ease the suffering of his tuberculosis which affected his skills as a gambler and gunfighter.  In 1987 he moved to the Hotel Glenwood where there were nearby hot springs where he hoped to take advantage of the curative powers the waters were said to have.  He deteriorated rapidly however and died on November 8, 1887.  He was 36.  He is buried in the Linwood Pioneer Cemetery which overlooks Glenwood Springs.
