A bad boy?
9 August 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

The real focus in Gun Smugglers is young Gary Gray brother of gun smuggler ringleader Douglas Fowley. He acts as a Judas goat and leads an army patrol headed by Sergeant Paul Hurst into an ambush and all are killed but Hurst and the colonel's daughter Martha Hyer.

Because Hurst took a forbidden trail when he lost the shipment of Gatling guns in the ambush he's drummed out of the army after 40 years. He was getting out anyway within weeks and was going to go into ranching with Tim Holt and Richard Martin. So it's up to Tim and Chito to recover the weapons and clear Hurst's name.

Tim, Chito, and Hurst get custody of the kid. Father Flanagan's dictum about there being no such thing as a bad boy gets put to the test. A little too unrealistically and too maudlin sentimental for my taste.

Because of that this is a cut below the usual good standard that Tim Holt westerns have in my book.
