Doc MacGregor, aka Manos de Plata, a former physician, gambler and drunkard, has fled because of a bounty on his head. He’s been accused of the murder of Larry Kitchner, known as "The Man with the Golden Gun". To escape the pursuance of Slade, a well-known bounty hunter, Doc passes for Larry. Reaching Balbosas, a small village, he’s given a warm welcome: Larry, in fact, had been called to defend the village from the constant harassment of the bandit Reyes. Making the best of a bad lot, Doc-Larry starts to play the part of the gunfighter even when Slade arrives in the village, who, suspecting the other's identity, gets hired as a deputy sheriff. The battle rages fierce and dangerous, because Broga, an unsuspecting notable of the country, is secretly allied with Reyes. However, Doc and Larry Slade, temporary allies, succeed in the difficult task of exposing and defeating Broga and Reyes. Fighting fiercely and courageously on the same side, puts Doc-Larry in a very different light in the eyes of Slade, who forgets about collecting the bounty.

  1. I wish I had a golden gun like the one Doc had. I would probably never shoot it but it WOULD make a great collectible. A "safe queen" if you will. And fancy too.
