Practice, practice practice. But yeah, picking a lock with mushroom pins as a first is going to be pretty difficult.
I think people recommend getting a cheap kwikset to practice on first. My first lock was a Ã‚Â£5 abus padlock 60/50 which is a nice lock to pick, I think it may have one spool in there but it doesnt make it too difficult.
haha. yea ive got about 4 pins done on the sterling and the plug turns a good 45 degrees then gets stuck... mushrooms in there 2 maybe? im going to go get some cheap normal 5pins from a store in town in a few days, get me used to the feel of them as i only have 2 3pin locks that are a bit bigger than those pathetic suitcase ones haha. still are fun though.
