A shotgun-wielding bounty hunter carves a bloody legend through the lawless New Mexico Territories in Spencer G. Bennet`s classic Western saga of revenge and retribution. Eastern tenderfoot Willie Duggan (Dan Duryea) arrives in the frontier town of Silver Creek and immediately finds himself a long way from home. Here there is no law. The whisky is expensive but life is cheap and any justice has to be bought with a six gun. The idealistic Duggan decides to become a bounty hunter. Teaming up with an old sea captain (Fuzzy Knight), he confronts the worst killers in the Territories and learns his lesson the hard way. Now he knows the only good outlaw is a dead outlaw and decides to wipe them all out, armed only with his faith in the Lord and the sawn-off shotgun strapped to his leg.
