Synopsis:
Smead gets his shotgun barrel cut down to the size of a .44, and, after robbing a stage and cutting down many of its passengers with an amazing "quick draw", he decides that he is on the brink of greatness, and that no one can out gun him. And he is right, but challengers come at him thick and heavy, nearly driving the gunslinger crazy, so he takes the only way out he can think of.

The Who's Who indicates that Bellman also did the inks besides the pencils, so the ? after inker credit removed by Craig Delich.
