Lock picking – a great survival skill
We’ve all seen the secret agents picking locks in the movies. That’s pretty cool, but it could also come in very handy in a SHTF situation.
What if you are trying to hide your car and there’s a padlocked gate blocking your way? What if your child accidentally locks you out of the house? What if you need to get into a gated area and a lock is the only thing standing between you and vital resources like food or medicine? Sure you could shoot that lock, or smash it, or cut it; but why not be stealthy and hide the fact that you were ever there? You can use your lock picks to open that lock!
This is me after a few days of practicing lock picking during some slow times of my day.
I’m all for stealth whenever possible. If you leave a trail of busted locks, doors and windows, anyone who might be following you will have a path of destruction to follow your trail. Pick that lock with lock picking skills
There is even a set of lock picks hidden inside a false credit card for secret agent carry!
