Synopsis

The stagecoach that services the mining town of Tombstone is constantly being robbed of mining payroll by a bandit known only as Twin Gun Jack. Wells Fargo agent Tom Scudder is sent to investigate, and he is joined by his friend, ranger Alamo Bowie. Alamo quickly catches an outlaw named Peters in the act and turns him over to Sheriff Blaine, but Peters is only one of Twin Gun Jack's gang. When Alamo learns from Nellie Gray, who owns the local hotel, that Judge Hart is being threatened by the notorious gang, Alamo kidnaps the judge and hides him in his room. When a stagecoach driver is killed during a robbery, Bull Clanton, a local power whom Alamo suspects is involved in Twin Gun Jack's gang, forces a confrontation with Alamo in the saloon. Alamo beats him, however, and escapes safely. As the Peters trial approaches, Clanton and his thugs find the judge and kidnap him, taking him to their ranch, but Alamo's friend, Doc Holliday, finds the judge and rescues him without the knowledge of Clanton. Clanton is shocked to see Judge Hart heading the trial, and Alamo watches as storekeeper Jack Dunn sneaks out of the courtroom. He follows Dunn to the saloon, where Dunn uncovers the stolen payroll. With Dunn revealed as Twin Gun Jack, Alamo brings the whole gang to justice and despite the amorous entreaty of Nellie, moves on to his next conquest, Tom Scudder's sister.
