:s_hi: Hi everyone I’m new here so thought I’d say hello. Thank you to Tony Savil for the recommendation. I guess I’d say I’m a low intermediate level picker (on a good day) lol just wanting to get more involved in the locksport community, swapping challenge locks ect
I look forward to chatting to you all and hopefully helping out here and there 😬

We never speak his real name. To do so will rob him of his powers and make his hair fall out.

Also, welcome to the group mate. Pitch in and poke your nose into as many threads as possible, it's the best way to learn.

It's the curse of the Maynards. Mind you, the fur on my back is still luxuriant. I guess I'm lucky I take after my mum.

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

:welc:

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"

Pssst...This is me !
Not quite sure why, but my hair seems to be falling out!
Damn!

:welc:

Go check out some of the cool stuff on the forum.
There are really good reads in the "Locksport chat" sections, like "what I received in the post today" and " what I picked today".
The video section is amazing - check out Toni's thread ( not me, the other one!) For an up and coming YT channel, for example.
The greatest thread in my mind is called " january challenge 2019" where we all picked a lock a day for a month, but crazy Toni has some problems counting up to 31, and carried on all year....

Enjoy and most importantly, post photos of what you pick !!
