    Lock Picking

    Anyone play with lock picking? I just ordered a Sparrows kick starter set (few common picks and tension bars), practice lock and reload (re-pinning) set for it, and some top of keyway (TOK) prybars. Have spent entirely too much time watching the lockpickinglawyer on youtube lately and just need to give it a shot myself. If it pans out, I'll probably pick up a bigger/better set of picks but the kick starter set should be enough to get a feel for it without spending big bucks.

    Not doing this for any particular purpose, just for fun really and maybe some party tricks or what not.

    Just FYI, BLM peeps are the only ones that get away with robbery, burglary, and steal kids bikes.

        If you’re not a locksmith, you’re carrying burglary tools.

          Generally it's ok up here...I won't carry them in public.

          It's the same grey area that goes along with assisted opening knives, they're so close to switch blades which are illegal but as long as you aren't a dumb ass, you can own them.

                  Actually I would not tell anyone but your internet friends. Anything that goes missing at work or home you become the first suspect. I realize this after my neighbor got locked out. Picked the lock while they were crying about not getting in after a long vacation. They did not watch me but were asking questions afterwards. I just said I jimmy the lock, not sure what that evens means. Next week a locksmith changed all there locks.

                    Lock one of these up so you can have a legal tasty treat once you succeed in opening the lock with your legal tools.

                        Do you wake up every morning determined to be an insufferable C U N T or does it just come naturally?

                            Same if you have a hammer, screwdriver, or anything else.

                              Lockpicking is a handy skill. You can get passable skills in 5-10 hours of practice. You won't be able to do it super quick or pick resistant locks but you can get through most schlage/kwikset/master locks. I carry one of the sets that looks like a folding knife in my work bag. Gotten locked out of cabinets and equipment and it's saved the day

                              Also watch some of the shared key stuff from deviant ollam and others. Picking up random common keys is handy and will always be faster than picking.
