    I've only been to one lock picking competition and didn't even rate a door prize. Those people were amazing. I do this primarily for brain food. The pure satisfaction of solving a puzzle, and the occasional occurrence of helping people locked outside without keys is all I've ever experienced.
    Considering the investment in time and discipline it takes to get good at this, I've never understood the criminal perception of lock picking. It only happens that way in movies.

    In any case, lock sport is good clean fun.

    Short story. After work at a grocery store, I jumped out and forgot my keys. A guy next to me asked if he could try it, with a slim jim in his hand. He got it open within a minute. I was happy but also concerned about his ability. Work truck, not that important.
