Not much to say, just new around here. Been mostly picking easier Abus locks and look forward to meeting new people. While I'm from the US, I do have friends in the UK and family in Ireland.

Welcome to the forum :victory: You've definitely found a great place to be. Plenty of great people here willing to share, bounce ideas around or help out.

By way of some orientation, best to point out some important and useful bits to get your teeth into. First, if you haven't already, have a quick read over the Forum Rules. It's always amazing how many new people never get around to that bit :laughing7: It's quick and painless. I promise :laughing7:

We've also got a heap of great tips on using the functions you'll find throughout the forum right here for you to check out.

Then the juicy stuff ..... Check out our Library and Video sections. Huge amount of great stuff there.

And have a good mooch about with the Forum Search - that will definitely throw up a whole wealth of treasures.

If you haven't already, I highly recommend having several good reads of the legendary 'Solomon's Uber-Detailed Guide'. That will help to set you up sweet on some theory, and it's great fun! Also have a read through of 'A Summary of Lockpicking - A Better Understanding of the Practice of Non-destructive Entry'. That will also clarify a heap and stir up some questions, no doubt.

And of course, feel free to rattle that keyboard, ask questions, contribute or just shoot the breeze til yer fingers bleed, if necessary. Every day is a school day here. There's always something new or something forgotten.

Look forward to seeing you around.

Enjoy, enjoy :victory:

See you around,
