Hello Everyone!
I am looking to get into the hobby of lock picking. I have a lock pick set but many have recommended that I don't practice on my locks around the house for two reasons: A) they could wear down the lock, or break of in the lock, damaging your locks at home B) you want to start out with 1 or 2 pins and work your way up in difficulty. So I was thinking of purchasing this from Southord to learn with. Would you guys recommend this or do you have any other suggestions?

Sector67 has a set of practice locks for the lockpicking class (http://www.sector67.org/classes.php?class_id=28). Kevin who teaches the class also talks about rekeying (pinning) locks, this would let you build your own set of practice locks or modify a single lock over time by adding or subtracting pins. Sometimes Dane County Restore has locks as well that you can pick up for a reasonable price to practice with.
