    it would be nice to see lockpick sales available at dc... I have seen a few kits available at swap meets, you know the kind that come with the picks (crappy tiny ones), and a cd rom... for like 10 bux.. anyway it is obvious you get what you pay for... but perhaps calling them letter openers would pass the legalise of it all ;) ... surely there are some metal workers out there who want to make a buck... fashionable letter openers... hmmm...

        Why haven't you tried anything else? You will only get better if you try many different things and practice.

                I wonder if airport security would go batshit over trying to fly back with a set.. even if it is in the cargo luggage? I had to raise hell just to get my gps on the plane in Canada.. I can imagine they would be shitting cinderblocks over a lockpick set in the luggage..

                    Hey, you should post some pictures of all your toys. It would be cool to see all your tools.

                        we had previously discussed how to camouflage one's lockpick arsenal by throwing the picks in a bag with various other common things such as a nail files, eyebrow pluckers, eyelash shaper, nail clippers... etc.. just put them in a bag... just don't put them on your carry-on and you should be fine. :) If they stop and ask you what it is, you can mention that you use it to push back your cuticles, or comb your nose hair..

                          You can always just join ALOA. The membership card will pretty much take care of any probs you run into with your picks being termed "burgular tools" which is really the only thing that you have to worry about as far as legality goes.

                          BTW...I take my GPS on planes all the time...I have never had a problem. Why were they giving you such a hard time about it?

                            I have no idea what the deal was.. perhaps they thought I would hit someone over the head with it and take over the plane.
                            The whole fucking ordeal was odd.. they called me to be searched before the plane was even pre-boarding. They went through EVERYTHING in my bag; went through all the pages in my 2 books, smelled the shampoo and toothpaste made me turn on my laptop, gps, phone, and Handspring Visor. He got really pissy after he turned on my visor ( I had NSA pic as the opening graphic, attached). The only thing I can think of was the fact that I was wearing an EFF shirt and the graphic on my visor, but he was being a dick before he saw the visor.

                              Sure! Terrorists could.. let's see.. use them to pick the door to the cabin of the plane.. yea.. that's it.. then um.. piss on the plane controls to short them out and cause the plane to crash! We need laws to prevent that!! How about PATRIOT act part II?

                              Before long, we are going to have to wear striaght jackets to fly..

                                who said profiling wasn't a bad idea? :/

                                I don't plan on ever flying unless I have to, but defcon would probably be the worst time for me to fly...

                                ... this year i am trying to decide on getting a good cheeseburger detector, or getting plane tix ;) I really don't think they would let me on the plane with four cases of bawls, and liquor... not to mention whatever else is brought...
