> Description 
As we all know, there was a real Wyatt Earp. The TV show followed some elements of his life, but was liberal with the details.

This Wyatt starts out in Ellsworth, Kansas. It is here that Ned Buntline gives him the oversized weapon, a .45 with anextra long barrel. Called a "Buntline special" it packs a heck of a wallop and give the Marshal the extra range to drop bad guys, of which there is a never ending supply.

By the second season, Wyatt moves on to Dodge City. Yes, I know that Matt Dillon was marshal in Dodge on Gunsmoke. But that was Saturday night and this was Tuesday and besides it's TV. So live with it.

By 1959, Wyatt moved again to Tombstone. You just had to figure, sooner or later, he'd get to Tombstone and the O.K. Corral. In a five part series finale, Wyatt's brothers Morgan and Virgil, along with Doc Holliday, succeed in dropping the Clanton Gang in the gunfight at the O.K. Corral.
