I didn't choose this hobby, it picked me.

Rattle that keyboard a bit and say hi, introduce yourself or tell us why you're here. For new members this is your first port of call

Hello there!

I'm a total novice and I've just ordered my first pick set and lock. Itching to get going with a new passion and keen to learn as much as I can from you fine folk.

So, assuming I don't rage quit and I'm as good at lock picking in real life as I am in Fallout games it's going to be a fun ride!

Regards

I wish I had a "welcome template" like some of the others here, saying to read the rules etc. Just do as they say! :)

There's a wealth of information on this forum and if you can't find what you're after just ask.

Don't be afraid of posting photos of locks you pick on the way as we all like pictures, no matter how easy they are to open. Everybody started somewhere and like seeing people progress. You don't have to pick a Medico to get a +1! In fact there's a whole thread on "What you didn't pick today"' :)

More than anything, have fun and keep it legal!


I think I've just written my first "welcome template"

Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
