Hi there U.K locksport members. I am a relative newbie to locksport. I've been casually picking for a couple of years, but of late I have become obsessed by this hobby. I love all things related to locksport including picking, pick making, lock stripping and repining. (The later is still very new to me.
As for my understanding of locks I am beginning to pick locks with higher security pins these days but am still learning and failing often. Suffice to say I have the picking bug and it is not going to leave me for quite some time I feel. I love locksport! Thanks in advance to all who have contributed to this huge forum of lock knowledge goodness. Speak soon ^-^

Great intro, love the passion pervaded.

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.
