Hi guys and gals,

I’m a complete beginner at the art of lock sport so I will probably need some help in the future. I have always been interested in lock picking but never delved in so look forward to chatting to you guys.

Ask loads of questions and post loads of pics. welc
You must always remember, it's the lock that chooses the pick, not you.

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. The only stupid question is one that isn't asked!

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"
