Hi all

Complete novice here :)

After watching lots of youtube - mainly lockpickinglawyer and Bosnianbill, with some Lock Noob and a few others, I have just got a really cheap set from Amazon to give it a try. Not done a lot so far (really just the transparent locks with the kit and an old no-brand lock I had lying around) but I think I now have a new fun and relaxing hobby. To be fair, I think the transparent locks will open with just a stern glance, and the old lock was even easier - so I'm not expecting anything else to be that easy!

Next step - more locks and probably some better picks...

...and time - must find some time from somewhere :)

Take some of the Bosnianbill videos with a pinch of salt. Don't expect it to be as easy as it looks, even when you're at that high skill level.

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.

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