The Gunhawk rides into the town of San Marcos and heads to the local saloon to get a drink. There he finds that a young boy named Billy Case is holding the people at gun point for not acting when outlaw Luke Durand shot and killed his father, so not he is holding everyone to make them pay for their inaction. The Gunhawk tries to convince the kid to drop his guns and have a drink, but the boy will not listen to him. Before Billy can fire, Gunhawk manages to shoot him, but only to wound. Billy sister rushes in an berates Red for shooting her brother, angry that he only thought with his guns and did not consider that her brother had been drinking every since his father was murdered. Taking the woman's words into considerations, the Gunhawk vows not to use his guns in the future whenever the Case family is concerned and leaves town.

Two weeks later, the Gunhawk rides back the way to San Marcos and decides to pay the Case family a visit. He arrives just as their ranch is once more being attacked by Luke Durand and his gang. Gunhawk pushes his way through the gang and busts into the ranch house to help. Billy's sister then begs Gunhawk to help them fight the outlaws and releases him from his vow.

Synopsis for "The Man Who Murdered Gunhawk!"

Gunhawk is camping out for the night when a young man named Nolie Desmond tries to get the drop on him. Red is a faster draw and shoots the guns out of the boys hand. Seeing that this is no bushwacker, Gunhawk asks what the boy wants and learns that he wishes to be Red's sidekick. Warning the boys of the dangers of being a travelling gunslinger, Red cannot dissuade Nolie from his desires and agrees to allow him to accompany him the following day when he moves along.

Red and Nolie ride into Sage City a town that is frightened whenever the Gunhawk comes to town because outlaws always try to take a shot at him when he does. At the local saloon an outlaw tries to take a shot at Red, but he is a faster draw and shoots the man dead. The sheriff arrives shortly thereafter and asks Red and Nolie to leave town. That night while they are camping, Gunhawk reiterates the dangers he faces every day by outlaws who are trying to make a reputation for themselves but Nolie still insists on joining him and being his sidekick.

The following day they enter the town of El Pueblo where they are spotted by a trio of outlaws who want to snuff out the Gunhawk. While Red is watering his horse, the men attack and seemingly shoot Gunhawk who apparently dies of his wounds. Horrified, and realizing the dangers of being a gunslinger, Nolie leaves town to return to his normal life.

As it turns out, Gunhawk was not really hit when shot at and was faking his death in order to dissuade Nolie into entering the life of a gunslinger. He then tracks down the outlaws who tried to kill him just as they finish robbing a bang and mows them down with his guns.
