There are plenty of intro books at local bookstores.

Check out Paladin Press. Paladin Press tends to publish the not so ordinary books (examples: Mantrapping, The Death Dealer's Manual, the Poor Man's James Bond, Paper Trip, etc.). They should have quite a few books on lock picking and such.

:D Well, as a locksmith for almost 30 years I can say that most locks only takes a few seconds to open. An Idea for you try taking one apart and you will see how it works depending on what king of lock you are wanting to pick. Let me know if I can help.[/b]

Be careful out there!! In many States it is illegal to have Lock picks in your pocession. They are considered to be burglery tools. I know that some State would have to prove that is what you are going to use them for, but in any case they could say "What other reason would you have them for if you are not a Locksmith or Police Officer". So check with your local Police Dept before you get them and make sure that if you do get them anyway keep them at home and not on you or in your car. Just some good info for some of you beginners. :twisted:

In Alberta, you need to show proof you are an apprentice or a certified locksmith to get your locksmith liscense.

All documentation is verified, you school or employer has to verify authenticity, and you are then fingerprinted and put into the police database.

Then once you have your documents, you are then allowed to purchase and posess the tools for lock picking.

There is a free video around that teaches you to make your own picks out of hacksaw blades.

It doesn't teach you picking techniques but those techniques are something you can work out on your own. It will take patience and practice.

Locks only keep honest people out of your house.

Actually, I recommend the MIT lockpicking guide. It's a good introduction, and it's free!

Hi
I like pick much.. but on Italy carry pick is forbidden ( I live on Italy ) and the new lock are really a challenge to pick it ( take a look here ... http://www.cisa.com/flex/cm/pages/Serve ... agina/2046 ) so I continue to study picking.. but also started to study bumping ... take a look at this video... http://toool.nl/index-eng.php .
With this method I don't carry pick.. only one key if I know the type of lock to open.. and no problem with law.
Bumping is really great and strong.. but I prefer picking.. because when you pick a lock, is like you are going inside it.. with bumping you have not this feel... so DON'T bypass the study of lock. Bumping is perfect for challange with high security lock when you haen't much time
