Most families in the early West wanted to make an honest living at jobs they knew best supplying their loved ones with food and putting clothes on their backs. The Masters family was one who made their living with blood, sweat, and tears operating one of Arkansas's largest cattle ranches. Vince Masters, the youngest son of the family loved the art of quick drawing a pistol. Against the approval of his father he solemnly promised to never use a gun on anyone unless it meant protecting his family. When he discovers his whole family slaughtered he is forced to retract that promise and sets off to hunt down the unknown assailant. Crossing three states with few clues to go on he finds himself constantly being forced to use his gun against hired outlaws who stand in his way from pursuing his mission. The law finds that having Vince on their side is a good thing. His draw was said to be faster than most famous gunfighters known in the Wild West. The name Vince Masters was never listed as one of the fastest gunfighters in history as he was able to keep his identity unknown. His only interest was to find the man he was looking for and destroy him. Becoming famous was the one thing he wanted to prevent at all cost. He finds that the many hours spent on learning to handle a gun would be an asset that would save his life as well as others. Never-the-less many big name gunfighters would go against this unknown man only to come up short and perish by the draw of the MASTER GUNSLINGER.
