Fuzzy opens a store only to find that everyone buys on credit. The absence of cash is due to the range war between the cattlemen and the farmers started by Kinney. The Sheriff being worthless, Billy is quickly drawn into the conflict.
Steve Kinney and his henchman, Mort, are trying to stir up trouble between the local ranchers and farmers, behind a wave of rustling and lawlessness. Mort kills Vic, a Kirby cowhand, and lays the blame on Dan Harper, the leader of the farmers faction. Storekeeper Fuzzy Q. Jones, fearful of losing the outstanding charge-accounts he has on his books, drags his reluctant pal, Billy Carson, into the fray, and the two soon prove Kinney and his henchmen to be behind the valley's troubles.

A fun entry in Producers Releasing Corporation's Billy Carson series, Oath Of Vengeance has Carson and his sidekick Fuzzy Jones opening a country store and trying to quell fighting between local ranchers and emigrating homesteaders.
They're pitted against some bad men who are trying hard to stoke tensions and ignite an all out range war between the feuding factions.
Al St. John is especially animated this time around, delivering an almost endless stream of sight gags, many of them revolving around his bickering with the local post master, played with comic ease by Marin Sais.
Buster Crabbe's heroics almost take a backseat to St. John's monkey shines, as he clearly walks away with the movie!
