No worries, Shearlock. It's a good question.
Subjects like auto and safe locksmithing are very specialized areas, as well as sensitive ones. They're also not usually subjects that guys new to locksport are going to get into because of the availability of locks to practice on, and the huge expense in tools.
Knowledge of auto locksmithing can also be very attractive to guys with a malicious intent, and to discuss this in an open public forum can lead to accusations. Of course, the same can be said about regular locks, and we watch that aspect by keeping guidelines such as not picking locks in use and not picking a lock that we have no permission to.
Another point to raise is that we are into this for sport, which is unlikely to involve auto locks.
Feel free to ask away, if you need. I'm sure Mark and others will add more.
