Hey fellow .... well I would say pickers but that can mean nose pickers :)

My name is Chris and I'm an addict.

I have been picking for a number of months now. I wanted to learn a new skill, saw a video of someone picking, I thought that looks fun and challenging let's give it ago.

I've picked quite a few locks mainly euro cylinders and padlocks very slowly, I'm currently improving my skills with security pins and trying to pick more effectively.

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. The only stupid question is one that isn't asked!

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"
"Without a naughty bucket life would be boring!" :)
