Strickland's son was carrying this small shotgun when he and his father were confronted by Buford Tannen and his gang. The Marshal's own shotgun was shot out of his hands by Tannen, who then ordered the boy to drop his weapon otherwise his father would be killed. The boy obeyed the order when his father told him to do so, but Buford shot Marshal Strickland in the back soon after anyway.
Behind the scenes
- Marshal Strickland's son was mainly seen carrying the sawed-off shotgun in a deleted scene, which was reinstated by Craig Shaw Gardner for the novelization.
