Danny Gordon (Charles Bronson of "Red Sun") and Jeff Lanier (James Anderson of "To Kill A Mockingbird") hold u a bank and Gordon guns down an unarmed man. The dead man's son Jimmy Benedict (Peter Brown of "Hell to Pay"), decides to exact vengeance on the outlaw. Christopher Colt (Wayde Preston of "Today We Kill; Tomorrow We Die") plays into the young man's hands later that evening by selling him a revolver for $20.00 after the kid assures Colt that he is not only 19 years old but also he is buying it for his father. Later, Jimmy's mother shows up at Colt's room and rebukes him for selling a firearm to her sixteen year old child. Jimmy rides off in pursuit and arrives in another town where he confronts Lanier and blasts his gun out of his hand. He sends Lanier packing and tells him to tell Gordon that he is a "sidewinder." Initially, Gordon doesn't want to kill the kid. Meanwhile, feelings of guilt gnawing on his conscience, Colt sets out on horseback after Jimmy and plans to take the gun away from Jimmy. Jimmy refuses to sell the revolver back to Colt. He struggles to convince Jimmy not to shoot it out with Gordon. Lanier urges Gordon to ride into town and shoot it out with Benedict, otherwise the townspeople will no longer treat him with respect. Reluctantly, Gordon slaps leather with Jimmy and shoots him in the hand. Since Colt has arrived in town, he has learned that Gordon is an wanted felon. As a government agent, Colt challenges Gordon and guns him down. Charles Bronson would have to wait until the middle 1960s before he would see his career chart an upswing. Peter Brown would go on and co-star with John Russell in "Lawman" at Warner Brothers and later "Laredo" for Universal. This episode represents a vintage example of Warner Brothers' black & white television westerns after Jack L. Warner gave up the ghost and started producing shows for ABC-TV. The hero packs two pistols and claims to be a salesman for the Samuel Colt firearms company when in reality, he is a government agent. Future "633 Squadron" helmer Walter Grauman directs with his usual efficiency.
