Synopsis

John was a Missouri boy who just wanted to be a cowboy and join a cattle drive from Texas. He stopped in Ottumwa, Kansas to visit his grandparents as he headed to Abilene to join some cowboys headed back to Texas. That's where life threw him a curve. He met Shorty, who taught him to quick draw a gun. He had a natural talent for it that he soon developed. Bullies and bad men learned that even at fifteen years old he didn't back down and they could expect a lot of misery from the Mizzouri Kid. He and Shorty made a two man army that destroyed two gangs and rescued the beautiful Dorothy. Now would the fiery redhead cause friction between the two partners and destroy their friendship or would she build John's new reputation?
