Tim McCoy's western series for Puritan Pictures were pretty shabby production-wise, but nearly always delivered the goods in the action department. McCoy plays a representative of a cattleman's association, dispatched to quell a range war. Fomenting the trouble is shifty-eyed Wheeler Oakman, who hides behind the cloak of respectability. With the help of young Tommy Bupp, McCoy gets the goods on Oakman and sends him to Boot Hill. Roaring Guns is the type of western in which such bloopers as Tim McCoy missing his stirrup as he mounts his steed are left in the film (retakes were an unaffordable luxury), but this tackiness only adds to the overall enjoyment.
