Pulp Friday: Gun-Whipped

This short 5-page pulp story comes from Triple-X Western Jan 1932, and was written by Carmony Gove.  It’s a short story of cowboys who cross the line at a poker game and resolve to do something about it so that they can live in peace and not have to look over their shoulders all the time.  This could be a good setting for a large scale shootout: 5-6 cowboys coming back to town after one of their guys has an argument in the saloon with another gang from town or a different ranch.  It also has some innovative use of a non-standard firearm–in this case a small pocket automatic.
