Earp receives a collect telegram from Ned Buntline saying he will be arriving in Dodge City. He arrives broke accepting rides from strangers. The editors won't accept his stories saying they lack authenticity and the Buffalo Bill Wild West Show is in hiatus for four months. Earp Is glad to help him in return for the Buntline Special which has saved his life. Near the hotel Buntline sees a man who scares him. He tells Earp the man is looking for him for a $1000 bad check he wrote to the man after losing on a riverboat but the man cheated. Later, Earp must confront a man who refuses to give up his gun but in reality is an undercover military officer looking for stolen arms and a man who matches the man of whom Buntline is afraid. Earp, Buntline, the officer, and Earp's deputies start a round the clock watch to see if the man is after Buntline or dealing guns to the Apache. Buntline goes aggressively after the story.

Did You Know?


The Gatling gun shown has the Accles feed. Unfortunately, while the Accles feed was very effective when clean, it was too fragile for actual combat. It did not take much dirt to impede the rotor from turning. And a dent in the thin walls of the drum could disable it completely. It was dropped by the U.S. Army when they converted their 1883 models back to using the Bruce feed system. See more »
