Marshal Simon Fry tricks Clay McCord, a young storekeeper into taking a wagon full of supplies to remote town knowing that the groceries are expected by the notorious Gentry gang who the lawman hopes to capture. Fry knows that McCord is a crack shot with nerves of steel. He also knows that McCord would never have accepted a deputy's badge since he has a younger sister and brother to support.

Quotes

[first lines]
[scenes of Ace Gentry's gang shooting up a town and robbing a train are shown]
Marshal Simon Fry: [narrating] That was the Arizona Territory in 1880 and I was it's chief marshal. It had been weeks since that Ace Gentry gang had held up that train before we got a line on them. Then a telegram had come to my office in Prescott - two men hauling supplies to wherever it was the gang was holed up. I could have cut them off anywhere along the line, but I chose Silver City.
