Historically, the right hand was used for the Pull By during a Reverse Cross
& Turn. However, many callers/dancers felt
that this was wrong, since Reverse often means to do the
of the call. Until recently (May 1996), the
CALLERLAB definitions stated that dancers use the right hand. The
current CALLERLAB definitions say to use the Left-hand.
Dancers doing the diagonal Pull By often yell 'Bang!',
pulling an imaginary gun from an imaginary holster, shooting the other
diagonal dancer (as if in an Old West duel). This often results in
many dancers dispensing with the Pull By altogether and simply doing
a Jaywalk; they are too busy 'gunning each other down', their hands
are occupied and they neglect to use them.
