well yes (and dont take this as a flame but that is a very simplistic way to put it) and no!!

as a said in a previouse post all depends on the brand of lock !!!

if it is a sargent forget about it they mostly use mushroom pins ..which means they have a fake shear line and a novice will never get them to line up..
electric picks r somewhat better on old locks no matter the brand the older and the more wear it has the better!! i have got old sargents to open with an electric pick faster then a new 5.00 taiwan job. but if u r new electric is what u should try..

shlage locks r the easiest to pick cause all you need is a blank schlage 6 pin key blank cut to the lowest depth all the way along then there is a little trick u do and boom it opens like a 5 dollar whore!!

and to everyone trying to help out thanks!!
