Evening all!

So figured i should post an intro since it seems to be the done thing and would be nice to hang out here a little.
Name is Rick, 31, from in and around the Salisbury area. Very new to Lock Picking and ive just got my first 'Decent' set of picks from UK Lockpickers. Basically stumbled across LPL on YouTube (Im sure everyone knows who i mean) And after watching a few videos..... well - all of them haha i got myself a cheap set of picks off Amazon with a clear practice lock. That was a few weeks ago now and ive been going none stop ever since, Usually get through a couple of padlocks a day, Luckily for me i have an (almost) endless supply of Squire 440 Lever locks that i can get my hands on through work that are keeping me busy. Anyways not going to ramble on about myself all night, Any questions just shout!

So it looks like ive got myself a new hobby so im sure youll see me around these forums and wherever else!

(P.S - If anyone is after a slack handfull of Squire 440's i can help just tell me how :P )

I would suggest taking a good read of Solomons guide as this is the best guide on the web (imo) :read2: :08: :
No matter what your skill set it's always a good piece of reference material to keep going back to.


Yes,yes I know you have already, but it's part of my patter and tbh it looks good to the other mods that I'm bothering with this stuff :hee20hee20hee: :hee20hee20hee:

Then mooch around the site at your leasure :72:

There is plenty to see do and get involved in so don't be shy :08:

Take a look at Meme's thread on pick making,I'm sure you will enjoy this great read :88:
viewtopic ... 61&t=12345

Also keep an eye out for the meet ups , as there maybe a few folk round your way :72: :08:

Lastly Have Fun,ask loads of questions as everyday is a school day here. :icon_study: :08: :clap:

How do :welc:

You can offer locks for free or for trade if you like. There is a section just for that kind of thing.

We run pass arounds that you can get involved in as you grow as a picker.

Have fun and enjoy.
