Tex Malison (Tex Riter), a happy-go-lucky cowboy and his stuttering sidekick "Grass" Hopper (Syd Saylor), join a traveling wagon show on its way to Tombstone, Arizoa. There, Tex has a run-in with the local gang-leader, Harry Pike (Forrest Taylor), whose band of renegades is terrorizing the territory. Sheriff Jake Higginbotham (Bud Buster) gives Tex the assignment of collecting $20,000 in back taxes owed to the county by the Pike faction.
