Betty Craig (Bessie Barriscale) makes a bet with a girlfriend that she can pass as a man. So she goes to the ranch of her friend's brother, Jack Kennedy (L.C. Shumway), dressed like a cowboy and calling herself Bob. Jack and his ranch hands see right through her, but decide to go along with the ruse for a while. They put her through the ropes, just like any other guy and, while she handles herself fairly well, it all is a little too much for her. At the local saloon, Jack and his pal, Irish Dave (Richard Wayne) disguise themselves as bandits and proceed to shoot up the place (with blanks, of course). Betty, believing it all, sticks a gun in Jack's back, and then the joke is revealed. The next morning, they all discover 100 head of steer missing, but Betty thinks it's still a joke on her. It isn't -- it's the work of rustler Miguel Carballo (George Routh). She finds Miguel, his men and the rustled steer, and brings the infamous bandit back at gunpoint. When she finds out that this was the real thing, and no joke, she faints. She comes to with Jack declaring his love for her.
