Hey from Canada! I'm brand new to locksport watched some Bosnian bill, look noob, lock pick lawyer on YouTube and I just had to learn how to do it. Picked up a kit from sparrows with a couple cutaway locks. I have about 5 hours of practicing in and I can spp the 5 standard pin lock pretty easily. Currently trying out the spool pins and getting more comfortable with the feedback and feeling what the pins are actually doing. Anyway look forward to diving into these forums and learning lots really cool community so far.

^^What Priyer said.

Step 1: Work out how to post pics, and do so frequently.
Step 2: Ask plenty of dumb questions.
Step 3: Take the piss out of anyone and everyone at the earliest opportunity.

Have a quick read of the rules and etiquette section (should stop any confusion later down the line).
Next it's up to you really.


I would suggest taking a good read of Solomons guide as this is the best guide on the web (imo) :read2: :08: :
No matter what your skill set it's always a good piece of reference material to keep going back to.

Then mooch around the site at your leasure :72:

There is plenty to see do and get involved in so don't be shy :08:

Take a look at Meme's thread on pick making,I'm sure you will enjoy this great read :88:

Also keep an eye out for the meet ups , as there maybe a few folk round your way :72: :08:


Lastly Have Fun,ask loads of questions as everyday is a school day here. :icon_study: :08: :clap:
