Fred Olen Ray's The Shooter, takes you back to the old wild west, where a civil war hero who fought for the union is trying to find his way back home. As soon as he walks into town, Atherton (Dudikoff) stumbles upon a prostitute being whipped by a gang member and his three friends. Without breaking a sweat our hero take the four out. Only trouble is that one of the men he killed was William Smith's son- the Smith gang has been holding the town of Kingston hostage for years now. Thus the desperate townsfolk recruit the able Atherton to take care of the Smiths once and for all. At his side and aid, are both the prostitute he saved and Kyle Tapert (played by country singer Randy Travis).
