Well, I have a little story to tell about the last few hours. I think some of you will enjoy it.

I'm staying at my dad's house, dog-sitting while he's out of town. Well, It's 3 AM and I suddenly realize that I have a Schlage bump key, and there are a bunch of Schlage locks that I haven't tried to bump yet. I start bumping every lock I can find over and over again. The doorknob locks were giving me trouble though. I lock the doorknob lock for the door into the garage while it's open, and I try to bump it. Well, no luck. So I walk out into the garage and the door closes behind me. I realize when I try to go back in that it's locked.

Well, no problem, right? I've been bumping locks left and right. Well, for some reason I can't seem to bump any lock anymore. I realize that my key is a bit bent, with a nice tear in the metal. I keep trying to bend it back and bump with it, but it just keeps bending. Well, I'll bet you can guess what happens after a while. The damn thing finally snapped.

I remembered I had an extra old Schlage key at my house, and fortunately I had my keys in the garage with me, though the key to my dad's house is inside. Well, thank god for that, because I really didn't want to have to walk the 5-10 miles to the nearest King Soopers in the middle of the night to buy a blank key while in my boxers.

After a trip home and about a half hour, I had a new bump key. I had to adjust it some when I got back to make it work, but I finally got back in after 3 1/2 hours. The thing that really cracks me up is that I finally NEEDED a bump key, but if I wasn't screwing around with a bump key for kicks, I never would have needed it. I can't help feeling like god is smiting me for learning to bump when I don't have a real good reason to.

Hope you enjoyed, sorry if you didn't.

Recently, I've been locked out of my house TWICE!!!! Of course my picks and bump keys were INSIDE the house :eek: . The first time I crawled through the SECOND story window (Cussing the whole time)...the 2nd time my son came home within 15 minutes with his keys. But both times I said to myself...'I'll be damned if I call a LOCKSMITH!!!!!!' I would have whittled picks or a bump key out of dry cat sh*t before I called for help! I would have found an old chicken bone in the garbage and made a rake pick, or searched in the sewer for a street cleaner bristle or........well you get the idea. Nobodys gonna pick my locks except me dammit :brickwall: . I guess I have lockpickin' pride or something...anyway I'm going to start carrying picks and bump keys from now on!!!! :smile:
Bump on!!!!

While I can't say that I don't carry some picks and a few bump keys with me at all times, I'd have to say that it can be a bad idea in legal terms. Make sure that your home state/county/country allows the carriage of locksmithing tools, etc.

Aside from that, carry away and use your skills as a public service whenever possible!

You really managed all, good one. This is what bumping is all about - trying, practicing, learning and gaining experience. I really enjoyed reading your story, thanks for sharing.
