Hi all, :s_hi:

I have picked a few practice locks and a few very questionable locks that i have laying around the house, lockpicking has always interested me and i am known for my love fishing or of taking things apart to see how they work. i havent really delved into the youtube/online information yet as i am fairly new to the sport, but looking forward to learning and improving.

Cheers... Dave

I wish I had a "welcome template" like some of the others here, saying to read the rules etc. Just do as they say! :)

There's a wealth of information on this forum and if you can't find what you're after just ask.

Don't be afraid of posting photos of locks you pick on the way as we all like pictures, no matter how easy they are to open. Everybody started somewhere and like seeing people progress. You don't have to pick a Medico to get a +1! In fact there's a whole thread on "What you didn't pick today"' :)

More than anything, have fun and keep it legal!

I would strongly recommend watching some of the YouTube videos, especially ones aimed at beginners. Lock Noob, Bosnian Bill and Lockpicking Lawyer are good places to start.

I think I've just written my first "welcome template"

Welcome to the forum!

I as well share your interest in problem solving and seeing how things work. I also like getting into the history of how locks came to be what they are today - it is really worth the research and interesting.

There's loads of useful stuff here in the friendliest corner of the internet and a whole host of people to ask when you can't find what you're after.

Have a read of the rules, pick some locks and show us the photos.
