Y'know, I really try to downplay lock picking when I'm talking to new locksmiths -- or folks considering the trade.
I've noticed in the last couple days that I've used my lock picks on most of the jobs. Wonder what's with that? My guess is that since the economy has been poor, not many people are upgrading locks. Or installing deadbolts.
But folks still get locked out now and again. And so about the only calls I get are lockouts.
What's the experience out there? Anyone else doing lots of lock picking?
