Celebrating 175 Years of Texas History
On December 29th, 1845, Texas joined the Union as the 28th State. Sovereign Texas would become the only state to ever be a country before it became a state. This sense of Independence has lead the Lone Star State to be a leader for our country. Texas is our country’s icon for Freedom and its citizens are Proud. 2020 will mark Texas’s 175th Anniversary and to celebrate this history and heritage, an heirloom is now available to carry on this legacy. Etched into steel is the foundation of this great state. Included on the shotgun are the founding fathers of Texas, the brave Texans who fought for Independence, the cattle industry that started Texas and the Capitol.
Only 75 Shotguns Will Ever Be Made
Texas is directly tied to Leadership. Texas has produced presidents, war heroes, industry moguls, athletes and many proud citizens that defend and support American values. Texans hold themselves to higher standards than the common man. This drive has lead to success and the willingness for others to follow them. This anniversary shotgun recognizes just a few of those key leaders that have paved the way.
