I find it easier to bump a home door lock rather than a deadbolt lock.

Also I can't bump a padlock but I can bump other locks.

Should this be the case?

I guess it really depends on what you get used to. I have a much easier time bumping a deadbolt, instead of a door lock. It is just what i learned to do first. I also have no problem bumping a padlock, and reguler deadbolts are also easy for me.

It all depends on how quickly you are able to pinpoint the fine differences in tension, the impact force and in the case of mounted locks, how you position yourself. Most people are able to quickly master unmounted locks first, moving on to mounted locks, and somewhere along the way playing with padlocks. I have a friend who just got into bumping who can open just about any padlock, but is still trying to get his first bump on a mounted lock of any variety. (I told him to let off on the tension a bit.)

Long story short, everyone's different.

Actually it all depends on the type of lock you practice more, on some locks we are good while on other we feel hurdles
