I live in Pennsylvania & don't know your area at all. I have an old family Bayard pocket pistol and I understand that an Oklahoma gunsmith named William "Bill" Pitts is very knowledgeable about these pistols. That information is from some time ago, I'm guessing at least ten years. And I don't even know what part of Oklahoma he was in.
But if anyone knows Mr. Pitts and can put me in touch with him, I will appreciate it. This is just an inexpensive little pistol but it does have a bit of family history behind it. I'd really like to have someone look it over for me to see if it's shootable or needs work, and if I can find Mr. Pitts I'll ask him if I can ship it to him.
Thanks for reading this.
