Following, Marston asks Quigley for a demonstration of his range and accuracy.  Quigley describes his weapon which he modified and demonstrates his ability by shooting a bucket in rapid succession three times at around 1,200 yards.  Impressed by Quigley’s ability, Marston wants him to use his sharpshooting skills to help eradicate the native Indigenous Aborigines.  Quigley finds the idea abhorrent refuses and the two men fight and when Quigley is knocked out, Marston leaves him and a local crazy woman named Cora (Laura San Giocomo) to die in a remote part of the outback.  They are rescued, however, by Aborigines, and plot their revenge against Marston.
