Film extra Chad Pennington and his pals try to ride back to Hollywood on the back of the prop truck but are bucked off by the rough road along with some western themed props. The props allow Pennington to pretend to be a gunslinger so he can get some high paying work protecting surveyors crossing the land of unfriendly ranchers. Of course not all it was it seems and thanks to the lovely ranchers daughter, Molly, Chad and his pals are determined to get to the bottom of the dispute.
