A follow up comedy western to "Tough Guys of the Prairie". It seems a gold shipment is being undertaken, but unfortunately an outspoken telegrapher reveals a little too much about the operation and the rumor of the shipment spreads rapidly. Through the town of Cornestone the gold must pass, and some bandits are eager to grab the treasure. Unfortunately, they just do not know where it is actually located, and this leads to a lot of complications and misunderstandings. ‘The Prairie Tough Guys’ Biggy, Sam, Shorty and Ben take action, but they don’t know much about the gold either. Only and Indian girl named Shannahoo knows the proper location and operation, but she’s not easy to get something out of. It takes time for both bandits and heroes to find out the truth. In the end a big thumping good fist fight occurs with plenty of fisticuffs and the hats fly.
