Jake Jefferson Jackson is a young ex-gunfighter with some notoriety because of Ned Buntline's dime westerns. Travelling to New York to put on a stage show, JJJ meets two attractive and unescorted wives on a river steamer.
The ladies are impressed by the cowboy's good looks, the size of his stetson and the well worn .36 Navy Colt at his hip. Can JJJ prove he's the fastest gun in the East?
