Well, I'm David Storm and I have never offered
such a lame product as those locksmithing CDâ€™s.
I would like to hear from anyone that watches my video
and compares it to any other on the market. My content is
original, accurate and gleaned from countless encounters with
real world locksmithing problems.
In my opinion the master 175 padlocks trick I teach is worth
the price of admission alone, not to mention the super, in focus
cut away locks I pick, using a variety of picking techniques. I have
taught a great many locksmiths how to pick locks. I know that
sounds egotistical but it's true. I had one locksmith at a show
come up to me and say, "How many pins do you have in that lock?"
All five I said and proceeded to push up the pins with the flat side
of a diamond pick and pull it out slowly let each pin click off one by one.
He still didn't believe so he disappeared and reappeared carrying a
Schlage 6 pin cylinder, a Best IC core and an American brand Padlock,
I think it was a series 30 or so. I picked the American first in under a
two minutes, then I picked the IC core, I was praying I would hit the
change key depths but no such luck, lol. Then I picked the Schlage
cylinder with a deforester as I detected a high pin in the back with
low cuts in the front.
Well, that got his attention and he finally concurred that I was the real
thing and proceeded to hang out at my table for the rest of the day
trading "secrets" back and forth. And that day he picked an American
for the first time along with an Abus buffalo lock and several other locks
he had previously thought were unpickable.
Here's a little about me...
I started performing magic onstage when I was 8 years old
I became interested in escapology when I was around 11
by age fifteen I could pick locks better than any local locksmith
and went to work for two brothers who owned a locksmith shop.
I was too young to drive so their mother would drive me to houses,
cars and storefronts to do lockouts. You haven't lived until you seen
the look on an adults face when they see some 15 year old kid open
a dead bolt faster than they could get their key out.
I actually started popping the locks in under a minute and just pretended
to take longer because so many people were getting genuinely pissed and
refusing to pay $30.00 for something that took a "kid" only seconds to do.
I am right now working on a high security video in high definition
scheduled for release next year that will teach how to open Medeco
Bi-axial, Schlage Primus, DOM, Multi-lock, Abloy Granite locks and high
end safe manipulation.
And yes I am a salesman as well, I've had to be, but a lot of that has
come from my background as a performer. I produced, directed, edited
and starred in this entire DVD. It was produced with a high end 3-ccd
camera and Liquid Pinnacle Edition.
In the end it's really up to you. lol it's absolutely no skin off my teeth. In
fact if you missed my introductory offers on Ebay they are now gone
forever because I was only selling them that low to get some quick
cash into my Paypal account.
Southern Ordnance (Southord.com) and GunVideo.com just picked up the
video and their going to be taking over the bulk of the online sales. This
of course will free up more time for me so I can finish my upcoming
videos. In the video I use almost exclusively the Southord tools. I feel they
are the best on the market for their price. Yes the Falle set from MBA
(Mark Bates & Associates) is better but good luck getting it if you're
not a locksmith and if you do it will certainly lighten your wallet way
more than a set from southord.
If you go to the southord site they don't have the video available yet as
they are waiting for the pictures to come back so they can post them. But
they did post the coming soon ad in which they say my video is the "The
finest Professional Locksmith Course, available on either Video CD or
DVD!" It isn't available on CD though so I'm not quite sure what they had
in mind but they did say it was the finest available.
No ego here, lol.
On that note if youâ€™re used to using thick, bulky handmade tools I think youâ€™ll
Be amazed at how much a nice double diamond or ultra thin deforester pick
makes a difference. This is coming from someone, who in my day didnâ€™t have
Stainless steel tools, they were HPC clock spring tools and they were clunky
and tight in high security locks or even residential Schlageâ€™s.
Hope I didnâ€™t come off too cocky I just had a fellow customer write me and tell
me about this thread and I thought I would respond. I hope to frequent this forum
now and share in the knowledge.
Best of wishes,
