Frequently Asked Questions
Is Lock Picking Legal?
Usually, probably "yes". There are many very easy to navigate resources that will help you make that determination but it is legal to most extents in about 80% of the US. Internationally it us usually legal, too. And do not forget, "Legal" and "Moral" are not always the same thing
Is Lock Picking Expensive?
It could be. But, this "Tactical Lock Picking 101" was designed specifically to keep the amount of training time, the amount of gear you have to carry during deployments, and the amount of gear you have to purchase - all to an absolute minimum!
Is lock picking hard?
Nope. Not usually. The movies and TV probably have you conditioned to believe that it is a skill reserved for super spies and only the most elite of street detectives but that is emphatically not the case. This is a skill that Joey B down the street, and a Special Forces Operators, can sit down and both learn at the same time and they can both get an unbelievable value out of "Tactical Lock Picking " for their separate fields of practice.
Does Your Dog Pick Locks?
My dog does not... yet. But I have seen video evidence of dogs here and there that can manage some latch manipulation. It's on my to-do list for me and my dog "Arrow" (who you'll see in the background for most of the filming).
