Season 14—Adventure 5—Northtown—Episode 9—Scene 1… Northtown Saloon… Wyatt Berry Stapp Earp was not in the mood—and although not the fastest gun in the west—was certainly faster than any of these four miscreants.
He was also a very good marksman.
All four men fell wounded to the floor.

Episode 9—Scene 2… Confrontation on the Road… Calamity Jane Canary fired first with her Winchester dropping three of their assailants to the ground.
James Butler Hickok and Ace Jacks fired as soon as they were in range—dropping the remaining two to the ground.
All five were wounded and in no danger of dying—but extreme danger of spending quality-time in prison.

Ace remained behind to tend to the wounded and bring them to the Northtown jail—Hickok and Canary rode hard towards Southtown.
Episode 9—Scene 3… Southtown Road… Outnumbered by nearly two to one—our heroes had to lure the gunslingers into a trap. Chris and Sarah were the bait.
Chris and Sarah were the bait
They rode directly towards the gunslingers—who to a man grinned in anticipation of an easy kill.
That was when Lacey, hidden in the trees, opened fire—immediately wounding two.
That was the cue for Joey, Linda and Debra to ride quickly from behind the gunslingers and Chris and Sarah opened fire.
All ten soon were on the ground dead or wounded.
There was still the matter of the twenty additional gunslingers.
The dogs & Flutters reported, that they were riding hard towards them.
The six quickly retired to the woods by Lacey and pulled-out their rifles—no sense exposing themselves in the open against such a large number.
The twenty men came upon their compatriots, took stock, and decided the amount of money they’d been offered was simply not enough.
The left the dead behind, and with the wounded rode away. McGinty had already paid them part of what he’d offered. The gunslingers believed that was enough—considering.
Hickok and Canary arrived in Southtown and went immediately to the saloon—McGinty and Anders were not there, “We’re looking for a Mr. McGinty, have you seen him?”
“Yup,” the barkeep replied, “He and Miss Anders just boarded the train.”
“Any idea where they were headed?”
“A place the called Danger Bay—wherever that is.”
