Kinda not really showing any type of true "It's Illegal". But generally some online sites wont sell to NY residents. It appears that where I "may" have gotten them from "possibly" didn't have much interest in caring.
Nope, a bump key will fail most of the time on a lock with a far forward set pin. The furthest forward pin will not move to the shear allowing you to open the lock. Picks will get that far forward pin. Also bump keys have problems with keys set with a double shear such as those locks set for use with a one lock key and a multi lock master key. The bump key will not work on a wafer lock due to the way a wafer lock works. They only work on pin type locks
i have a set I was given 21 years ago, it has over 100 picks, tensioners, extractors etc. I have not found a lock I couldn't pick yet. I can even get into the tubular locks like found on soda machines. Some take only seconds and some take upwards of 30-45 minutes depending on the brand and design.
I had the privilege of attending government sponsored training on bypassing locks. Learned how to pick locks and bypass the locking mechanisms entirely. It is more fun to think of it as how to hack the lock. Once you get an idea of what I mean, you never look at a locked door the same way again. There are often faster and easier ways to open a locked door without a trace than using a lock pick. But picking a lock is good fun! I am not very skilled at picking higher security locks, that comes with practice.

One day my dad locked himself out of his truck...'03 F350
I showed up with my kit, and he's like "what's all this now?"
30 seconds to open the door, hopped inside, and had the engine running in another minute
I learned how to do it, cause in my business, I get alot of medication carts and sometimes file cabinets and stuff that are locked. It's actually a very useful skill to have, and so surprsingly simple, you'd be amazed. There are very few locks that can't be defeated with that set above. The ones that are more persistant? Shims, jigglers, and electric pics
Where did you pick up that set?

When I was really young I could pick a master lock in seconds with a two piece set but I was a weird little lad. Haven't tried it in years. It got me into a lot of trouble.
With those padlocks and some others you just take two hammers and hit both sides (narrow sides) at exactly the same time and they pop open, it's because of the spring loaded latches that face each other.
If it doesn't have a motor I don't want to play with it!
