Hi all, I'm Bob and as the screen name suggests from Birmingham UK. Having seen many video's on lock picking I thought I'd give it a try as a new hobby whilst the wife watches crap TV...
I've bought a couple of practise locks and can open them fairly regularly in a short time, but struggling to make any progress with proper locks, guessing I just need more practise and to watch ore videos of hints and tips..
Take care
Bob :s_bye2:

How do :welc:

Have a read of the rules and Solomon's guide and check out lots of videos and pictures

Ask lots of questions and enjoy

Practice locks are OK to start but will teach you to look not feel, you need to feel the insides of the locks.

But yes, practice is the key, so to speak.
