Josh runs into two bounty hunters who want him to join forces with them. But Josh refuses since their professional ethics leaves much to be desired. Besides Randall has his eye on a comely saloon owner whose business is suffering because the town doesn't like bounty hunters. Trouble is Josh can't trust the two now that he's rejected their offer.

Slender episode, at best. Josh's ploy is supposed to be clever, but isn't very persuasive, plus all the action takes place in a hokey sound stage town. So add poor production values to a thin script, and you've got a lesser series entry. Good thing the series had a winning personality like the early McQueen to carry them over rough spots like this.
