Thanks for all the info

I've been picking on some level for sometime now but, have only become a zealot in the past year. I work for a law enforcement agency and a small (very small ) portion of my job involves nondestructive entry. I usually get a few gigs a year but, it makes all of this practice and reading worth it. There is nothing like trying to pick a lock with a large armed force behind waiting on you to open a lock. To this end I don't care how I get in bump, pick, or bypass. Just get it open, do what you have t,o and be able to lock it back. I 'm also working with a local hackerspace (hive13) on a lock forensics study to study the different types of tool mark impressions left behind by different types of attacks. We are fully aware of the work that datagram has done in this area and he has encouraged us to duplicate the work to validate it even further. My newest passion in this area though is pick fabrication. I'm turning out some decent bogotas from street sweeper bristles (I bought a whole new brush man was my wife pissed to see that thing in our basement). Most of all I wanted to thank everyone who contributes to this and every other forum out there. You all make this hobby possible and get a bunch a of good guys through the door just a little quicker and a little safer each time you share some information. Thanks.

We'd love to hear about it!

The code is hidden in the tumblers. One position opens the lock, another position opens one of these doors...

I've been in that position...not too comfortable, knowing you're THEIR shield!
