Seeking Indian Joe, suspected of murdering the father of 12-year-old Buddy Hazlet, Bob Merrill and his friend Shorty secretly enter the stronghold of the Pecos gang. They learn that the actual killer is Tom Marsden, foreman of the Merrill ranch and also a gang member. At a riding contest in which members of the gang are pitted against Bob, he is told by Peggy, his sweetheart, that his friends Shorty and Buddy have been captured and taken to the gang's stronghold. Descending from a precipice, Bob frees his friends; and when the gang returns, he fires on them with their own machineguns.
