An outlaw gang burns down Clay McCord's general store to provide a diversion while they rob the Silver City bank. Now without a source of income, Clay is forced to pin a deputy marshal's badge on full time - at least for the time being. When Clay gets a lead to the bank robber's hideout, he determines to capture the gang by himself so he can claim the reward money and get back in business as a storekeeper. Written by
