Hi

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

Hey everyone,
I'm pretty much a complete newbie. I was given a starter set of locks and a few picks for Christmas and have been managing to open them (more from luck) but I'm working on being able to properly feel the pins.
I'm looking forward to reading the forum and trying out what I find.

You've come to the right place for all things Locksport. :08:

You must always remember, it's the lock that chooses the pick, not you.

Did someone mention Solomon's Ueber detailed Guide to Lockpicking yet? It's somewhere on this board, you can't miss it. It's really good!

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!

Solomon's guide can be found here: viewtopic.php?f=41&t=423

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