    LOL, Infidel! Yes, I can...

    Most are for our home. We key lock EVERYTHING inside and outside the house, including bathrooms and bedrooms. Ric

    I do not mean to derail this topic. but here is something to learn about all those keys.

    In the US all you need is 5 keys to open 95% of locks (see the last link after reading this)


    to make a bump key. or the bumper. all you need is a small file and some key that fits into a similar lock. then all you do is cul all grooves in the key to the deepest there is, which is called 9 or a 0. and then cut about half a millimeter off the base part there the key part meets the handle. then attach a piece of lead or something to a metal ruler and use some duck tape

    then put the key in and rotate till it goes in no more

    hit it with the ruller "tool" 2 - 3 times while trying to rotate and most pin and tumbler locks will open.

    I was thinking of becoming a reseller of secure disk locks and then going around and teling people that i can open their door in 20 seconds or teach them how to open it in 20 seconds.


    here is a hands on

    emptying pockets...
    keys, Paragon switchblade, micro-leatherman, 4 .22 magnum hollow-points, a piece of lint, something that looks like it may have been a stick of chewing gum at one time, a plastic coke bottle cap, .63 in mixed coins, wallet, money clip with more 1s than 20s, cellphone, blackberry, inkpin, business card case, unidentified dead insect parts, North American Arms .22 magnum revolver, field tip from arrow.
    I don't really know how much this varies from one day to the next but today was fairly typical.

    My standard basics in my pockets all the time. Wallet, keys with p-52 can opener on the key ring, change, 2 Zippos, spare card of flints in wallet, 3 Tobasco sauce bottles from MREs filled with Zippo fluid (each will refill a Zippo once), 3 pocket knives, dimond whet stone, small LED light, check book and when not at work a .357 Rossi. Then most of the time I also wear a boonie hat that has 50 feet of 550 cord braded into a hat band.

    Well I travel a little lighter than you guys and must not have as big of pockets as ya'll. All I carry on my person are my keys, wallet, knife and cell phone. However, my vehicles aren't ever far away from me.
