"If you play straight with us, Sonny, we'll play straight with you. We don't want any trouble and we know you guys have as much right to camp on this lake as anybody else. But the minute you cause trouble for us or anyone else, we're gonna come down on you hard, it's gonna be powder valley for your whole gang."
Barger nods, seeming to understand.
"We didn't come here for trouble, Sheriff. The way we heard it, you had enough trouble waitin for us."
"Well, what did you expect? We heard you were coming in for a rumble, to tear things up."
"But there's no reason why you can't enjoy yourselves here like everybody else. You guys know what you're doing. There's nothing wrong with you. We know that."
Then Barger smiles, faintly, but he smiles so seldom that even a grimace means he thinks something is very funny.
"Come off it, Sheriff. You know we're all fuck-ups or we wouldn't be here."
