What are you looking for?
Nothing. I was just killin' time/
Maybe you pick funny places to kill it. I don't know who you are. This isn't the first time you've gotten in my way. Next time will be the last. Safest thing you can do is get out of town.

Either someone at Monogram butchered this Range Busters western or it was not carefully edited for television. In the days that Sam Katzman rode the range at Monogram either is a good bet.
The guys are working undercover and are on the trail of an hombre called the Jingler because he wears the biggest and fanciest pair of spurs you ever saw. Doesn't believe in being incognito.
Speaking of disguises the Range Busters in going undercover discard their familiar mounts, but keep their famous cowboy hero outfits lest the front row kids know for sure they're the good guys. They sure don't look like miners.
The investigation isn't helped by Max Terhune after consultation with Elmer decides to salt the abandoned mine in the ghost town where the Jingler is reputed to be. Overnight the town fills and just as fast it empties when the truth is discovered.
Now they're might be some lost footage out there, but I doubt we'll see a demand for a director's cut.
One of the worst of the Range Busters.
