Bounty hunters were very common in the Old West
during the last half of the 19th century. They made
a living from the rewards offered for capturing
wanted criminals. Since it didn't matter whether or
not the criminals were brought back alive, bounty
hunters were not bound by the constraints that
hampered lawmen, and did pretty much as they
pleased. Such a man was Josh Randall. He felt
little apparent emotion and was a man of few words.
He was also adept at using his gun, not a normal
pistol but an unusal cross between a handgun and a
rifle. His "Mare's Leg" was a .30-.40 sawed-off
carbine that could be handled almost like a pistol
but had much more explosive impact when its
cartridges hit a target. In the spring of 1960 Josh
acquired a sidekick in young Jason Nichols.
Apparently things didn't work out, for by the
fall of that year Josh was once again riding alone.
