> Description 
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 contraints 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 unusual 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.

The pilot for this program was aired in March 1958 as an episode of the series Trackdown.
