    I have for many years now carried in my back pocket a set of lockpicks....and taught myself how to use them....saving myself a lot of monies in locksmith costs.


    At work only a handful of people know I have them and generally I do not advertise ..in particular to and because so many people out here have mostly a television and or movie education.


    On occasion I am called to open certain lockers for supervision as the previous shift is often in such a hurry to leave after work they do not hand over the keys to certain storage lockers wherein are stored certain pnuematic tools and calibrated measuring tools..also specifically calibrated torque wrenches.


    The other night I was called on the company phone to come to the office....and I guessed it was to open another lock.


    Irony of Irony.....I was being called to try to extract a broken key....

    Someone had broken a key off in a lock and management was in a panic...as this room had to be entered often in security making their rounds at the plant.

    I have in this lockpick kit a broken key extractor and used it that night to remove this broken key. Management breathed a sigh of relief...and I went back to awaiting the next job....to a nice cup of coffee....

    That was enough drama for that night....


    However...as a sidelight.....I consider these lockpicking /lock shimming skills ....very valuable in a survival scenereo....wherein you do not want others knowing you have transited certain areas....leaving about broken and damaged locks as witness to your passage.

    This is not an easy skill by which to become proficient....

    It takes dedication to develop the skills/feel.

    In like manner to teaching myself to read morse code....you have to keep at it.

    In like manner to learning to ride a bicycle...you have to keep at it.

    But then again....many useful survival skills are so....

    its a long time since I've done any night work, as to locks most locks out here in the countryside are of the padlock variety and can be opened either with bolt cutters or by giving it a good whack with the side of a shovel- a trick I learned over half a century ago.

    At one factory for which I did work, they too had a lock-pick fellow.

    If during the upcoming SHTF years I have to get into some place, I see myself "going Old Testament" on the locking mechanism. I've got some East German 7.62x54r ammo that will shoot through steel plate.

      Read a story by a fellow who had repeated break-ins, so he goes to using metal door with heavy dead-bolt. Weeks later, some burglar(s) cut an entrance hole through the side of his house.

      I'd say that he should have gotten Akita Inu dogs. If the owner is not at home, they may not bark (no one to alert) if there is a break-in. However, they WILL attack the intruder. They can be way beyond mean. This is a breed from Japan.

      Prior to the breakdown of civilization, one should not electrocute burglars. It's easy to do, however that will get you into trouble while police and court systems exist. A Haitian man who ran a business in Florida that kept getting broken into -- through the roof, no less! -- rigged a metal net and attached 220V to it. He fried a burglar, but went to jail.

      When society breaks down, thieves will get what they get. In some states here in the U.S., the law already looks the other way when felons get sent into the land of ambient temperature.

    Yeah..I ve had for years now some black tip...30.06..but no reason to use it.

    Would mostly prefer something more subtle...and not leaving a lot of tell tale traces.....but that is just me.


    Just finished watching Dinish Desouza's video 2000 Mules...very interesting about GEO Tracking....and confirms much of what I suspected about Cell phones.

    High powered rifles are loud ... VERY loud. So, I see your point in not arousing attention in an environment that is otherwise quiet. It's like how poachers use .22 lr rifles on deer -- they shoot them in the head. I've got bolt cutters. I've tried picking locks and have always been an abysmal failure at doing so. Not once have I ever been successful. I've never owned a lock-pick set, but I've watched guys opening locks using wires and such.

    If you can share more about the movie 2000 mules, I'd be ever so grateful. I know about them having all manner of videos showing absentee ballots being stolen & dropped-off.

    What was amazing about the recent Virginia election was that there was a Republican sweep even with all of the illegal shenanigans going on. I forget how many millions of dollars George Soros dumped into Virginia to rig the election pro-Social-Democrat. Yet, there were still so many conservatives voting that the Republicans took the Governorship, the Lieutenant Governor position, and the state's Attorney General office. The north and coastal areas of Virginia are still collectivist. Richmond is still a Democrat stronghold even though the Confederacy was crushed / destroyed / burned into nothingness. The belief that there need exist an all-powerful central government is still around in the Democrat Party -- go figure.

    Responsible black folk are infuriated by those in their community who do not take care of their own. Responsible hillbillies loathe dead-beat rednecks. Thus, the differentiation between redneck and hillbilly. Hillbillies take care of their own. Many rednecks can't even take care of there own selves. Don't call a hillbilly a redneck -- that's a fight-starter.

    Geo Tracking is a method of tracking cell phones by number....with special requests and or permissions from certain companies specializing in that know how and technologies.

    What they were describing in the Video 2000 Mules was that it was known the longitude and or Latitude of each ballot drop box ....and the number of times via Geo Tracking that certain cell phones showed up at these boxes mostly in the wee hours of the morning. These Cell phones can be tracked back to a certain number and that this was also how the constabulary finds a suspect in many of today's crimes....Geo Tracking...who and what cell phone was in a certain area at the time of the crime.

    This was often coupled with certain video evidence of these people and certain cell phones at the ballot drop boxes.

    What is so unusual is this information coupled to the time of the day and how often these cell phones showed up at drop boxes...in the middle of the night but also and often in broad daylight...

    The investigators were able to draw maps of these cities and their drop boxes and connect the cell phones to a predictable route...drop box by drop box after drop box.....a whole route..made and taken by these mules.

    And in addition to this these people would often take out their cell phones and take a photo of the Ballot Boxes to show that they were there....thus indicating this was the proof they needed to get paid for ballot stuffing.

    One woman was wearing those blue gloves and when finished stuffing these votes...dropped these gloves into an adjacent waste receptical.....on video.

    It is pretty convincing when coupled with the rigged electronic voting machines..and that they were often coupled to the internet..not Isolated.

    In my opinion ...the left is going to have to cheat to make a showing in the mid terms and again in 2024....they cannot afford not to...cheat to make a showing....no choice..

    But on the other hand...I hold little confidence in the Republican Party to make a showing as representative of the American people versus representative of the political party only. The political Deep State Party.

    my mobile phone isnt on a contract and the number isnt registered anywhere, I think its what American crime shows call a "burn phone", whether anyone can track it or not dosent matter to me, its turned off most of the time, I dont use it, in fact I dont make or receive phone calls, its just for emergencies- I dont have visitors either if it comes to that...LOL.
    post collapse the sim card will be removed and destroyed and the phone thrown away.

    Your call Lonewolf..but under some conditioins if you are going to leave it turned off...you might want to think about removing the battery if you are not using it...that is if you can remove the battery.

    Many of the newer cell phones you cannot remove the battery....

    Or there is that Fardaday bag business..

    Your call Lonewolf..
