Arms traffickers Carter and Truscott slip away in a boat along the waters of the Pecos with the hold full of rifles. But Tex and Carson, having escaped from their last trap, board the boat with the help of the Herculean sheriff of Nolan Point. There is nothing left for the scoundrels to do, before ending up in the hands of the army, than to take a swim in the river. Two months later, the pards go to Gallup for supplies together with a big group of Navajos: it doesnt escape the evil ringleader, Jed Dugan, that Aquila della Notte and his men pay for the goods with pure gold.
