    I searched around and found a few old threads (2013 and older), but I was curious to see what other lock picking hobbyists and locksmiths of this forum carry.

    This is my small sparrows starter kit that I leave in my bag just in case.
    Always check your local laws first, lockwiki has a nice concise guide organized state by state.

    I'd like to get a minimal Ti keyring set, if anyone has any suggestions.

    I've got a rubber/plastic concealment/go tube from ITS tactical and just carry the Ti bogota rakes from Serepick in it. Lives in my backpack. Next time I order (I also use Sparrow picks), I want to order a standard hook and maybe a deep hook to add to the tube.

    I've got a practice thread going that sees some action every once in a while.

    Nice, mind posting the link?

    I just ordered a practice lock I saw on massdrop. I'm hoping I can get a better feel for single pin picking.

    Cut away/see throughs are good to visually see what is going on. I'd recommend a lock that you can repin easily, start with 1 pin to get a feel and then work your way up. Info on the one I got is in the linked thread, and I've seen other good ones on ebay etc.

    I keep mine in a Hanks by Hank pouch that sometimes rides in my front pocket. I also have a full-size set in my Maxped pouch in my bag so I always have a set on me.

    I just bought a set of Bogotas. They haven't arrived yet. Do they fit well in a wallet?

    Wow, those are cool tools. I learned to pick locks from my father (a lawyer) by using those flat wires the street sweepers loose. A pair of needle nose pliers and a small round and triangle file and you can make a spoon and a pick in a couple of minutes.
