Tom Callan had been a renowned and respected lawman during the days of Abilene and Dodge. And when the dust settled and men of his ilk were no longer needed they had entered other trades or did what Callan did. He became the marshal of the backwater town of Gunsight and deputy sheriff policing the southern end of the county. Things had gone along easy until Dave Bates and Will Mercer decided to resist arrest. It was then that all hell broke lose.
