Synopsis for "Guns Blaze in Mesquite!"

At the Silver Dollar Saloon in Mesquite, Texas, Billy Brady is roughed up by Blackie Malkin. Billy wishes his brother Tex Morgan could be there to defend him when he suddenly gets a telegram informing him Taylor's son (also named Tex) is coming to town and hopes the boy can set things right in town. However, when young Tex Morgan arrives by train, Billy learns that the youngster was brought west to get away from gunfights and outlaws and that he promised on his mothers death bed to never hold a gun. Tex has come back to Mesquite in order to move into his fathers ranch now that he has died, so far as Tex knows, of natural causes. As they walk through town, Tex is tripped by Blackie who tries to start a fight, but the cool headed Tex merely shrugs off the chance, much to Blackie's amusement.

When Billy brings Tex to his shack, Tex is shocked to find that Billy is not living on his fathers ranch the Rocking M. Billy explains that Blackie owns the ranch now and that someone actually killed Tex's father. He explains that the title that Blackie had for the land is genuine. Tex decides to pay a visit to Lawyer Davis to sort things out. As they walk back into town, Tex asks about his old Native American friend Lobo, whom he learns left town shortly after Tex's father was shot. Along the way, Blackie tries to give Tex a fright by shooting at him, making him "dance", but Tex rushes Blackie and beats him into submission. Before Blackie can fire another shot, Lawyer Davis comes out of his office and swats the gun out of Blackie's hand. He then invites Tex into his office and shows him the bad news: That his father apparently willed the Rocking M to Blackie Malkin before he died. Lawyer Davis explains that Tex's father was incredibly bitter of his son, but Tex doesn't believe it because it didn't come out in the letters they exchanged over the years.

Before he can get the Lawyer to confirm the circumstances of his fathers death shots are heard outside and Tex runs outside to see that Billy has been shot. As Davis calls for a doctor, Tex rushes Billy back to his shack. There Billy confirms that Blackie shot his Tex's father in the back. Tex, wanting revenge takes his fathers guns vowing to get revenge. He confronts Blackie on the street and challenges him to a duel. Much to everyone's surprise Tex manages to out draw Blackie and shoots him dead. However, the Sheriff arrests Tex for murder and Davis convinces Tex to surrender and that he'd see justice done.

Locked in his cell, he is visited by the doctor who treated Billy, who tells Tex his uncle is going to survive. He then whispers to Tex, telling him that people in town are looking to have him lynched and that he will soon be visited by someone who will try to free him. Later that night, Tex is surprised when his old pal Lobo has come to the windows of his cell and hands him a revolver, Lobo warns that the entire thing, including the planned escape is a frame up to kill Tex as well. When the man coming to "free" him arrives, Tex knocks him up with the butt of his gun and goes outside to find Lobo has secured horses for them. However, Tex wants to settle unfinished business and storms Lawyer Davis' office where Davis and the sheriff are having council. Tex demands to see his father's real will, but Davis tries to draw a gun and is shot dead. With Lobo covering the sheriff, Tex finds the real will in a chest and sees that his father indeed willed the Rocking M to Tex.

They arrive at the shack and hand over the papers to Billy, explaining everything. With a posse out looking for him Tex, now an outlaw decides to leave town. When he attempts to say goodbye to Lobo, the Native American decides to accompany him and they ride out into the range together, fugitives of the law.

Synopsis for "Terror on the Tenderfoot Trail!"

Tex Morgan and Lobo are approaching Horsehead Junction when Tex notices a wanted poster offering an award for his capture, dead or alive. Needing provisions in town, Tex cautions Lobo to keep a low profile. When they enter town they find it nearly deserted. When they asks one of the locals where everyone is, he tells them that most of the locals are out trying to capture a wild Palomino Stallion that has stolen a local mare to be its mate. He remarks that whoever captures the wild horse will have a good piece of horseflesh.

Tex and Lobo pop into a nearby saloon for a bite to eat, but when the locals return to town they try to slip out unnoticed but are recognized by one of them. One of the men, Squint Johnson draws on Tex, but Tex shoots the gun out of his hand and punches him out. Squint vows to get even with Morgan, but Tax and Lobo manage to flee the scene before the posse can get a beat on them. As they ride out, Tex notices that Lobo was winged by a bullet when he keels off his horse and it rides away. Assessing Lobo's wound, Tex finds it's not serious. Lobo then spots the wild Stallion and Tex decides to try and tame it. Tex successfully lassos the horse and then bucks it until it finally gives up. Having tamed the horse, Tex decides to ride it himself, naming it Lightning. Tex then ropes up and tames the mare and gives it to Lobo, who names it Cloud. The two then ride off before Squint and his men can catch up.

Meanwhile, at the office of the Governor of Texas, the governor has decided that the only man capable for the job he needs is Tex Morgan and orders him called in even though he is a wanted fugitive. When Tex gets word that the governor wants to speak with him, Tex decide to take him up on the meeting. The Governor explains that he knows the truth about his situation and tells Tex he is clear of his charges. He then offers Tex the opportunity to work as an undercover US Marshall and go back into Horsehead Junction and stop Quint Johnson's counterfeiting operation that sees counterfiet American bills smuggled into the country from Mexico. Tex gladly takes up the position and the job and soon he and Lobo ride back into Horsehead Junction.

Along the way they spot a steer with a broken horn running loose and lasso it. Suddenly the rancher who owns the steer along with a posse including Squint Johnson attack with guns blazing. However, they return fire and send most of the posse fleeing. Squint also retreats vowing to get revenge again. When Tex and Lobo ride into town they overhear the rancher telling the sheriff that Tex was attempting to rustle his cattle. Realizing how the counterfeit operation works, Tex and Lobo knock the rancher down and flee to the ranch with the sheriff following behind. At the ranch, Tex knocks over one of the steers causing his horn to break open revealing the phony money hidden inside. The rancher and his posse surrender under Tex's guns but Squint escapes once again.

Later, back at the office of the governor, Tex is given a full pardon and given full US Marshall status. As they leave the building Squint tries to gun down Tex, but Tex is a faster draw and kills Squint easily. With the case closed, Tex and Lobo ride off into the range again, every looking to uphold justice.
