Synopsis

A town sheriff sends for "The Man From Owlhoot City", who had cleaned up another town single-handed. No one knows his name or anything about him beyond his reputation as the fastest gun in the west. All wait with eager anticipation, but the next stage to arrive brings no one but a 'dude' and a young woman. Local rough Jasper Hawkins shoves the 'dude' around, but he grabs a gun and claims he cannot stop firing. The gang ride off and he grabs a horse and follows, hanging on to the neck for dear life. Catching up, he subdues them with ease and brings them back to jail.
