Hey folks. - it seems I am tonights new member. Im Nolan, from Northern Ireland. :s_hi:

Picking is something that has fascinated me for a long time, but it wasn’t until I stumbled onto a community on Reddit that I decided to buy a starter lock-pick set. Well the set arrived at the start of the week with a few clear locks to practice on. I’ve now been out and bought another three locks and have managed to open two but the last one (the Smith and Lock night latch) is beating me. Some obligatory pics:

welc :s_hi:

Nice to meet you :) read the rules, check out some old threads and join in the fun!

Those are perfect starting locks. You may struggle a little because of the picks you have (they are fine, just a little big in the shank). If you really enjoy the picking, you may want to upgrade at some point :)
