Recommended Posts

It's a saying like a "Texas Reload" only different.

 

When your six-shooter is empty -- you pull your other six-shooter = Texas reload.  :lol:

 

Texas Surrender =  Both hands on your loaded pistols.

That's always been the Wyoming Surrender position.

We have 4 different "surrender" starting positions we use around here..............

 

Of course the most popular, Texas Surrender...  Both hands on loaded revolvers

 

High Surrender...  Reach for the Sky

 

Low Surrender...  Hands up to shoulders

 

And then there's the infamous, California Surrender... Reach for your ankles and spread your cheeks

In our area you can have one hand on each grip or if you are a crossdraw shooter both hands may be touching that pistol.

That’s why I always make sure the guy behind me is shooting short barrels and not buntlines

Texas and surrender should never be said in the same breath!

Texas has probably surrendered more than any other state. How else do you get six flags?

What about a fellow with a Buntline on his left and a Sheriff's on his right?   I do that from time to time...
