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
