Bat Masterson has left school and become a scout for the Army near Dodge City. He is spending considerable time at a road house where he meets Amy Pelton. She seems to take an interest in Bat but her real hope is to use Bat to drive the killer Sgt. King who is claiming her away. An Army Captain seeing the problem tells Earp about it asking him to look into it. Earp rides to the road house where he tries to convince Bat to leave. He learns the truth from Amy who wants Bat to leave before King kills him but Bat wants to be a Dodge City deputy and marry Amy. Earp decides his only option is to improve Bat's gunfighting skills through lessons. Bat improves but at the same time Amy decides to leave without Bat's knowledge. Earp leaves followed by King's arrival. He and Bat immediately have it out with Bat wounded in the leg and King dead. Earp returns to take Bat back to Wichita with him to recuperate.
