Ok I just started picking. The first real lock i opened was a 6 pin 'chalet' lock (brass). Im all excited, have read tons and tons of lock theory opened the same lock lots more times and so i want another lock (shocking, right?) So off to the 'mart i go and look over the lock selection. Brinks and master was what i have to choose from so I grab a massive 5 pin 'pick resistant' lock, then to save a couple of bucks iend up with a brass lock (brinks 661-50001) that sounds like it has the same guts just with weaker shackle. Anyway, i picked this lock in under 2min and after trying a few picks Ive now picked it quite a few times. This makes me happy of course, now i'm wondering what makes it 'MAX SECURITY' worthy? From what ive been able figure it doesnt even have special pins. What gives? Any thoughts on a comprably priced lock that does have security pins of some sort, i really want to try my hand at some. Thanks all.
I punched punctuation right in the face!
