Being on the run from the law, notorious (but framed [?]) Billy the Kid (Bob Steele) arrives in Texas from New Mexico, & witnesses a stage held up & being relieved of its payroll. Doing what he figures would be the right thing, he holds up the robbers & relieves them of their loot.

LAter, Billy meets up with his old pal Fuzzy (Al St.John) in Corral City, but Corral City is terrorized by the Lazy A-gang, incidently the gang that held up the stage, & before long, one of them shoots Billy in the back (but does of course not kill him).

Recovering thanks to the care of local express line manager Mary (Terry Walker), Billy learns the desperate state Corral City is in, with the Lazy A-gang just dominating everything while stages are frequently robbed, & there's noone in sight who'd like to become sheriff ... so Billy (remember, Billy the Kid) decides to become a lawman (& Fuzzy his deputy), & since he is quite handy with both his gun & his fists, he soon puts the Lazy A-gang into their place.

Soon, the Lazy A's bosses Flash (John Merton) & Dave (Charles King) decide to hire gunman Gil (Carleton Young), who has previously helped them with their stage-hold-ups, to help them out again & duel the new sheriff.

But the duel has quite a different outcome from what was expected, as both men, expetrt marksmen, miss each other & ride off in pursuit ...

But why ?

Turns out that Billy & Gil are actually brothers, who have been framed in New Mexico for a series of crimes & since have tried to stay alive with a series of odd-jobs ... & while for Billy, that odd-job at the present is sheriff, Gil has turned outlaw with the Lazy A-gang - but of course he agrees with Billy to help him arrest the gang & retrieve the stolen loot from previous stage hold-ups. And the 2 of them decide to hold up the next stage coach, too, as it delivers quite a payroll, which would be too bad if falling into the wrong hands (e.g. the Lazy A-gang).

In the meantime though, the Lazy A-gang has grown wise to Gil being Billy's brother & trying to help him, while Mary has grwon to Billy being wanted as an outlaw, so when Billy holds up the stage, he is soon legally arrested by a posse from Corral City - heck, the evidence is still on him -, & once the sheriff's away, the Lazy A gang violently reclaims the city, & even go so far as to blast the express office wide open to get their hands on the payroll Billy tried to keep from them after all.

But fortunately there's still Fuzzy - still deputy - & Gil, who break Billy free, & the 3 of them soon manage to round up & arrest the Lazy A-gang for good.

& while Fzuzzy & Billy soon move on, Gil stays behind as the new sheriff of Corral City.

 

Maybe nothing special, & apparently made on the cheap, but still a likeable little Western that has quite a few plottwists (like the 2 brothers only recognizing each other when engaged in a deadly gunfight) which set it apart from being just another formula Western (if ultimately Billy the Kid in Texas is just that), & it's leads, Bob Steele & Fuzzy, are among the better cowboy leads & sidekicks, respectively.
