The drovers stop at a church to fill their water barrels. Father Fabian does not allow guns inside the mission which causes a problem when Wishbone raises a row during a wedding resulting in the drovers being tied and gagged. After the wedding Rowdy finds it is an old army buddy Buzz Travis who's getting married. Buzz is marrying the daughter of wealthy rancher Justice Cardin. The drovers are all invited to attend the reception which Favor accepts. On the way there they meet Ward Mastic, Cardin's embittered stepson who wants what he claims is rightly his. That evening Mastic makes an appearance to talk to Cardin. Cardin offers %5,000 but Mastic steals $75,000 followed by pistol whipping Cardin resulting in his death the next morning. Mastic waits for the men coming after him inside the mission with guns as revenge for his rifle being broken by Faterh Fabian when he was a boy. Rowdy has come back to help Buzz but Buzz is wounded and Rowdy caught without a gun as a worried Favor arrives... Written by tomtrekp
