Hi all.

Freud here, checking in. I'm fairly new to all of this, but I'm very interested, after having watched lots of bosnianbill and lock picking lawyer on youtube. I've got myself a set of cheap picks, and some cheap padlocks (where hopefully cheap == suitable for newbs), and I've ordered myself a practice lock. I've managed a couple of picks, but I'm still trying to get the feel of it, and I'm looking forward to getting stuck in and learning something new!

Thanks to Solomon for the book. That's going to be really handy.

Welcome to the group mate. Your first jobs are to work out how to post photos (Hint: It's the Attachments and other options button) and post a shot of your picks. The whole site loves pick porn, believe me.

After that it's just a case of asking as many stupid questions as humanly possible.

+1 for the username btw, why him?

^-^ and welc welc welc @ Freud,


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.
