This entry in Republic's "Three Mesquiteers" series has a misnomer for a title since the action takes place in Texas and pre-statehood Oklahoma, and the Rocky Mountains are in neither state, but Republic, which easily produced the best of the B-westerns, quite often used a title that had nothing to do with the locale of the film. Stony Brooke (Robert Livingston), Rusty Joslin (Raymond Hatton) and Rico (Duncan Renaldo) are Texas Rangers unable to enter the territory known as the Panhandle as it is not part of the state, and lawlessness runs rampant there, under the guerilla leader, King Barton (LeRoy Mason.) They discover a young boy, Danny Burke (Sammy McKim), wounded and left to die by the Barton gang. They nurse him back to health, but he is killed in another raid by the Barton outfit. Stony takes possession of the boy's gun and vows vengeance. Since the strip of land hiding the outlaws is under Federal authority, the Mesquiteers enter the territory with a plan to lure the outlaws across the Texas border. Stony, posing as his look-alike outlaw double known as The Laredo Kid, stages a jail break to free King Barton's younger brother Jim (Dennis Moore) from a Texas jail and insinuates himself into the gang. Barton has been forcing a Panhandle gunsmith named Manners (John St. Polis) to provide weapons for him, and Manners' daughter, Doris (Rosella Towne), is antagonistic toward Stony, whom she believes to be The Laredo Kid. Stony soon convinces her of his true identity. The plot to lure the Barton gang into Texas is progressing nicely until the real Laredo Kid shows up and exposes Stony.

Will maintains his grandfather had joined the gang to trap the leaders and a trigger-happy Pritchard had kept him from doing so. A crew from Signet Pictures comes to town to film the story of Wild Bill's life. Will is in love with Jane's sister, Marjorie (Marjorie Weaver)but her banker-father opposes the match. Will and Marjorie argue, and she becomes infatuated with Bob Merritt (Robert Lowery), who is to co-star in the film with Evelyn Trent (Kay Aldridge, billed as usual at TCF as Katharine Aldridge.) Jane and Sheriff Clem Perkle (Hobart Cavanaugh) get rid of Merritt by telling him the townspeople are going to ride him out of town on a rail. Movie director J. Wallace Rutledge (Hamilton McFadden)agrees to let Will play the role of his grandfather. On the day a bank robbery scene is to be filmed at Pritchard's bank, four supposed actors who have joined the troupe turn out to be bank robbers for real.
