Paladin wins worthless rifles in a card game and tries to unload them in a range war.
Early episode shows Paladin as unbeatable in contests and unerring in judgment. Frankly, I prefer the more humanized knight errant he sometimes is, especially in later entries after the series had established itself. Dragnet favorite Vic Perrin gets an extended and well-conceived role as an honest lawyer. This is also one of the few entries without a woman in either a major or minor role. That the camp Paladin sides with is Hispanic reflects, I believe, the rise of the civil rights movement than gaining momentum in the popular culture. Be that as it may, there's some suspense as a showdown between the rival camps draws near. All in all, it's a fairly routine episode, with Boone, nevertheless, looking and acting impressively.
