Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
An average low-budget Western from short-lived Puritan Pictures, Roarin' Guns starred Tim McCoy as Tim Corwin, an agent for the Cattlemen's Association assigned to look into a range war between settlers and powerful cattle baron Walton (Wheeler Oakman). Tim befriends Bob Morgan (John Elliott), a farm hand whose employer and niece, May Carter (Rosalinda Price), is due to arrive from the East. While teaching Bob's son, Buddy (Tommy Bupp), how to use a gun, Tim becomes a target of one of Walton's henchmen, Jerry (Rex Lease). In the ensuing scuffle, Bob is killed and Walton accuses Tim of the deed. When May arrives, she is told that Tim killed her uncle. With the assistance of little Buddy, Tim eventually manages to convince the girl of his innocence. But the sheriff (Ed Cassidy) is another matter and it takes the concerted efforts of all three to capture Walton. Roarin' Guns was arguably the weakest of the ten McCoy-Puritan Westerns; his next release, Aces and Eights, on the other hand, was the finest entry in the series.
