Surggs was always on the move, always on his white Mexican jacket, hat and spur boots. He was afraid of nothing. He showed strength and bravery, went to a bar and killed up to 10 armed men in splits seconds, including the bartender who was about picking up his rifle.
He then makes a man kill himself with his own gun, using a table trick. He was praised but little do he know that his death wasn’t far away from him.
That very day, Buster surggs lost his life to a man who was after him. After being praised, buster was challenged by the brother of the deceased in an open floor one on one gun battle.
Buster killed this man before he could bring his gun out of its pouch. Shooting his first five fingers from distance was humiliating, like that wasn’t enough. He then brought out a mirror, sight him then shot him in the heart while backing his target.
As soon as the body was carried. Buster met with the man who was after his life. Buster had the opportunity to kill him while he was coming from afar, but instead he challenged him for a gun battle.
