I have tried both ways and like using a single key, no key ring or other keys. The added weight and awkwardness of handling the added parts detracts from bumping. With a key ring full of keys, one does not have the control needed to bump sensitive locks, locks that need a light touch, etc. The bow end will be weighed down causing the tip end to angle up in the keyway instead of letting the key go in straight or level. Also, it would seem that the force of the bump would be distributed throughout all the keys on the ring instead of going fully into the key where it needs to go. Try both ways to see what works best for you though, but I prefer using a single key.
Bump it to the next level.
