A former outlaw, Billy Ringo, clashes with his old gang. Ringo decides to hang up his guns, buy a ranch, wed Arlene Reach (Helen Westcott), and let his nephew Chip Ringo live with them. Chip’s father Matt Ringo (John Dehner) is serving a prison sentence, and Billy is determined to keep Chip off the outlaw trail. Billy is trying to keep on the straight and narrow, too, but three other outlaws - Dixon, Hollaway, and Hoke - frame him into pulling a bank robbery with them.
Pretending to side with them, after accidentally killing Matt, Ringo informs Marshal Wyatt Earp of the gang's plan to rob a Wells Fargo express wagon. A gunfight ensues at the robbery, the three outlaws are killed, and Ringo turns Ike Clinton, the ringleader, over to Marshal Earp.
