Although Eli Johnson is sheriff, he is the most timid man in Cyclone Gulch. When called upon to round up a desperate character, he always manages to have efficient deputies experience the hazards. Finally his girl tells him that the county has made a pretty poor choice and Bill is greatly chagrined. One day, Bad Pete, a desperado, dashes into town, waving his pistols. Mary demands that Bill apprehend the bad man, but when Bill accosts Pete he is spanked and sent on his way. Bill hits upon a scheme and secures a suit of armor. Clad as a knight of old, he baffles the desperado, whose bullets have no effect upon the coat of mail. As Bill, with his sword, prods the bad man to jail, he is acclaimed the hero of the day.
