I am sure this has been asked many times (sorry for the redundancy), but is there any ETA on the release of part two with the higher security locks?

I tried watching it, but I couldn't get past the production values and 70s porn music. Maybe I'll give it another shot. (*chikka chikka bow*)

I bought it at a machine gun shoot last year.
It is a good video with some helpful stuff. The video was good, but I find the pick sets that he sell to be completely worthless. The picks sets are just stamped out stainless. He sells the sets under the premise that it is a good thing that the picks bend. "They bend to fit your hand." You can literally take one of these picks and wad it up into a ball.
If I were a beginner and had to pick with these picks I would give up and think what a crappy sport.
Beginners buy the video, but don't even think of buying the picks.

I don't know of what picks your talking about. I have the video and he uses southord picks in the video. I don't know of a pick set that he is selling. I do know that he bundles the movie with a beginners set of picks from southord though. Someone correct me if I am wrong.
I hear what you are saying.....that doesn't mean I agree with you....Just that I am nodding my head to placate you and silence your futile attempts to win the argument.

The gun show I saw him at he was selling jigglers, 5 piece southord sets(with the ezpicking book), and his DVD, but was out of jack knife sets.

from the auction item description:
locksmith for over twenty years and has taught at gun shows and lecture halls for over eight.
Gun shows in my state are pretty lame, then. bunch of fat eass dealers beitching about why john mccain isn't president.
This guy also made 'The Locksmith' CD everyone has and is copying.

I will say for what its worth i meet this fellow at a gunshoot in kentucky and i did end up buying the dvd and a spare set of jigglers,I did learn a few new tricks and the video itself is very well made"so in my mind it was worth it"once he makes another i plan on getting it as well,i have actually used this dvd to show a few law inforcement officers and they were really shocked at a few of the tricks and was glad i showed it to them,i may be getting one of the locals in murray ky to join 101 said that really caught his intrest,he will be real noob i may be getting him the tools he was asking on how easy bump keys were and so forth.So like i said theres my 2 cents worth

I bought this DVD a month or so ago, and was really pleased with it. I hesitated buying it, because it seems most of the books and videos available on the subject are just a rehash of the same basic material, but I gave it a try anyway. I found some techniques I hadn't heard of before, and there was also a pretty good section on picking tubular locks. There's not much for an accomplished lockpicker, but for beginners like me it's a good visual supplement to the information contained on this forum. It was also entertaining to watch. If a second volume becomes available, I'll probably buy it.

I have a copy of this dvd and personally I learned alot from it. I really enjoyed all of the thorough explanations and displays, and the dent puller trick was pretty cool, i had never seen anything like it before. I will definitely buy the part 2.

Great video, covers a nice range of locks and technique.
I really didn't mind SouthOrd plugs, they are best views and demonstrations I've seen of those tools, one or two more comparisons to an inferior/alternate would have been nice
The music was not my taste but was better than silence.

Being a newb to locking picking this video helped me learn a lot. I'd recommend it for any person who is learning.

I got it, and I can safely say that it helped ALOT when I was starting out, and there is some more advanced stuff that I haven't quite gotten yet, but I think it didn't really explain some of the principles behind "why it does this" and "why this will happen". Still a good DVD, not one I would buy again, but if you can find it cheap on eBay, then by all means, go for it.
