I dabble in lockpicking. It gives me something to do with my hands on long conference calls or short flights, and it’s a pretty useful skill to have at times. Thanks to this pastime I’ve come to understand exactly how crappy locks are, and how insanely easy it is to break into just about anything I want (like that time I picked my way into a Top Secret level secure facility… because I left my badge on my desk). Turns out some of the more common handgun locks aren’t much better — I wasn’t expecting Fort Knox level security, but I figured it would take more than a half diamond and ten seconds. Guess not. Moral of the story: BUY A GUN SAFE.
