I'm very sad to hear that.

Back in the day; I used Bill's revolvers exclusively for PPC competition.  Unfortunately; the only one that I still have is the below Smith and Wesson 60-4.  It has all of the bells and whistles one would expect from a "target snub-nose" (perhaps an oxymoron to some; to others....it makes perfect sense).  Even with my tired old eyes and standing on my hind legs; it will still cut a single hole a twenty-five yards with wad cutters.

To me; Bill was always extremely nice and supportive.  A great shot and skilled craftsman.

We just lost a good one from the old school.

Oh, that's a shame.. I last saw him at one of the Shot Shows in Orlando..a great smith, great shot.. He and Jerry Eason were a formidable team, in PPC.
He was also a  Charter member of the American Pistolsmith Guild...
