    Default Can anyone vouch for this book "Tactical Lock Picking" or similar?

    Supposedly this book offers a framework for tactically assessing different locks and other barriers to entry in an emergency, without diving into the nitty-gritty of tools and specs. Has anyone read it, or do they know of similar books?

    The Lockpicking Lawyer sounds weird, but his videos are excellent. Quick, to the point and most enlightening.

    It seems having a look at all the above would be informative as a package. Thank you!

    Another of those "If I Woulda"...If I would have had some of those good lock picking skills when I was a working man, I could have made it into upper management...

    Well, it says “Tactical” so it has to be good. Right?

    Tactical is a pretty specific word to use. The reviews look good though, as does the summary for it.

    I've picked locks, done it on quiet entry. I'd never consider the skill tactical, that's for fags. Just learn the skill, its super useful

    They must have meant "Tacticool".

    There is quite a bit more to picking locks than people realize. Most residential locks are easy to pick. Many pad locks, even more expensive ones, can just be shimmed. They don't even need to be picked.

    Where the skill comes in, is when you're trying to open more advanced locks, say, one with mushroom style pins. You aren't going to successfully rake a lock like that.

    As far as penetrating security goes, its useful to look at a location in layers, as there are very few secure locations that are secured only externally. If the book doesn't even mention these things, its not a very thorough book.

    In an emergency? A 10# sledge, a bolt cutter, and a crowbar are about as effective as anything else. If all you're concerned with are emergency situations, just carry those items in your vehicle and drive one.
