A big welcome to both of you!

Lots and lots to view and browse around here.
Just don't forget to eat, sleep, and shower :D

Hey my name is Emery. I started picking around July, 2018. I've picked I couple Primus's, I can pick MOST Medecos, including a S&G 826C. I have picked a Twin V10 but I was looking at the key so I don't think it realy counts. I'm on YT, Reddit, and Instagram.

Hello all. I just registered on your site and wanted to say "hi." My latest project is opening a Montgomery Ward 9042 series safe. I'll post the details of this in the appropriate place but that's the primary reason I'm here. I'm a machinist and love to build (and tear apart) things so locks do fascinate me. Just haven't had much experience with their inner workings but maybe that will change!

Hey everyone, my name is Bob and I've been picking for a couple years now. I make my own picks and have never actually had a store bought set of picks. I would really like to eventually have a set of Peterson picks but right now I just can't afford it. I'm just getting into picking disk detainer locks. I don't have a disk detainer pick yet though so I can't do much besides read about it and watch videos on YouTube. Everything helps though. I would like to get more into SPP'ing Medeco's and high security locks. I mostly just rake now and it's surprising the amount of locks this technique works on. I would eventually like to pursue a career in penetration testing or lock smithing. That's about all I have to say. Thanks for reading and have a great day!

Hi Folks,

So I've been browsing this forum on and off for a couple of years. Basically since I discovered it, but at the time was unable to get through the registration process. Back then I was brand new to lock picking(still a complete amateur, but I do now understand much more of the lingo and concepts). My favorite pick I've used so far is the sparrows offset hybrid.

I failed to get the sparrows DD pick when it came out, but that is the next in my lockpicking journey. (i don't have the room at this point to get into manufacturing picks and stuff. I haven't seen the top of my workbench in years.)

Some might remember my screen name from the lockpicking Reddit. but I deleted Reddit from my phone over a year ago, because I found that outside of the lockpicking sub, the whole place is a f****ing disaster of humanity and I don't want to waste the hours reading the stupid crap people post.

I'm not very social. (a man of few words) It has nothing to do with whether I like people or not. I just tend to feel if I don't have anything to add, then that's okay. I don't need to say something just to have "my voice" heard. (I won't ignore people, I just don't tend to reach out unless I have a specific question.)

OH yeah, my background probably falls under I.T. geek. But I don't actually like computers. I just happen to have a knack for them, and it was easy to make money fixing them.

Well that about does it. Hope this qualifies as an introduction.
Cheers!
