When Ben Parkison's youngest son Flord is accidentally shot in the back and killed on Sherman land by his own rifle, it revives a years old feud between the Parkison's and the Sherman's. Ben thinking a Sherman must have shot his son confronts Slim at the Sherman ranch. When Slim won't let his other son, Lee, search his property for Flord's missing rifle, he challenges Slim to an old time duel which Slim ignores. Ben then pays to run a public ad in the local paper challenging Slim to a duel. However, the young rancher doesn't want to fight, despite pressure from Parkison and some of the citizens of Laramie. The pressure gets to Slim who barks at Andy who is bothered by the pressure. It isn't until Ben Parkison kidnaps Jess Harper and threatens to kill him that Slim risks his life to save Jess from hanging. Written by Anonymous
