I am an scuba diver and take people on trips for the local scuba shop.
I am also an amateur animator and do it as often as I can.

Thanks for starting this thread...

I've been meaning to post in here for some time, guess now is time the time!

So about me - I too live in sunny \ hot Florida. It sounds like you and I have a lot in common. The only difference is you are actually doing it! I would love to go sky \ scuba diving (and plan to soon).


I too am addicted to digg.com, and pretty much anything 'techno' related.
I have a Whites metal detector that gets some use down here in FL.


I started this site and bumpkey.us as a hobby. Just something to keep me out of trouble.

My name is Chris, I'm 27 years old. I live in Virginia Beach, VA. I'm a security consultant for a local tech firm. I do everything from network security(IDS, server management, security analysis, etc.) to high-security corporate and government building alarm systems(install, test, analyze...you name it). I am also an amateur locksmith. I have been picking locks for the past few years, and I've been bumping for a few months now, even though I've owned a set of bump keys for over a year.

I'm a digger too, I've been in to computers since the mid-nineties. I got my BS degree at age 21 in 2000(Computer Information Systems), and my AS in 2002(Network Security). I've been in the network security field for the past 6 years.

I see we have some skydiving enthusiasts here--I've been skydiving 4 times, base jumping once, and hang gliding twice... Skydiving is GREAT, anyone who hasn't done it really should. There's nothing like it(except base jumping, but I wouldn't recommend that one...long story...).

Go ahead and post your websites!

If it's not a site related to this forum \ bumpkey.us...
The only thing we don't want is shameless \ contestant plugs about other competing websites. We've put alot into this site and bumpkey.us. It is simply VERY frustrating when people try and steal customers \ forum users away from our site(s).

I'm a 22 yr old kid from AZ. I enjoy girls and the occasional drink. Used to hustle coke, been clean a little over a year and a half. Trying to stay out of trouble. Finance major. Never convicted of a fellony on my little vacation from reality, thank god. So i started thinking go back get your degree, graduate, try and make a million bucks or something.

Money's always been easy for me. It's staying away from the easy money that's hard. I studied under an older grifter for a couple years (nothing impressive, strickly short con). But that's over now too so i've been looking for some ways to maybe enjoy a little excitement without spending the rest of my life in jail.

I'm going to Isael next summer to check out this branch of the IDF my buddies sister is with. Urban combat. I used to work at a shooting range when i was younger, i'm good with guns, and i like to blow stuff up. If i like it I plan on enlisting after graduation. After that who knows. Counter Intelligence Centre in DC. I dunno. Long term i want to be a civilian, but i can't help feeling kind of guilty for some of the stuff i've done. i wanna give back, but 9-5 cash flow analysis isn't as exciting as you might think.

My life is weird and complicated. Too much stuff has happened for it all to fit into 22 yrs in a normal kind of way. I have some trouble with anxiety sometimes but if you knew me you'd never be able to tell. i hide it well.

oh yeah, i guess people just assume that i'm the guy who'd know how to open a locked door. one day i deciced that i'd had too many of those calls not to learn so i bought a set of lock picks. still have no clue what to do with them. never been able to get them to work for me. then i heard of bumping a couple weeks ago, and i was like that's too easy. yep it sure as hell is. screw lock picks, james bond and rouge nija's can keep em. for me i think i just want to start a major bump key collection.

As much as a love bump keying. I'd take my lockpicks over my bump keys anyday of the week. Lockpick is so much more badass, and alot more versitale (I can open all locks with a pick and a tension wrench, as appose to having a handful of bump keys to open it up)

Live south of Atlanta.

Started lockpicking and slimjiming in law-enforcement days.

Now I use the same tools with my rental properties and with properties I go look at, to possibly buy, where people have taken the keys.

Bumping is interesting and has a oooo aaahhhh factor.

I guess i never did this. Live in the twin cities area of minnesota. Was given a jack knife lock picking set as a gift and began picking as a hobby. I got bored of that and the idea of "bumping" resparked my interest.

Not only did the instructor mention bumping, he brought 4 locks and bump keys. Nobody in the class had ever heard of bump keys and we were all opening locks before the end of the class.
