Not too bad... – Electronic Power Lock Pick Gun with W/L LED Illumination (8-Piece Set) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
It does the job. No problem with the battery, just let it charge properly the first time. And when the power is dropping off, use the usual precautions for NiCad batteries, i.e. discharge before re-charging.
Cons:
It can be a bit rough on the pins in the lock.
Forensic examination will show that a pick-gun has been used, and too much use on the same lock could even damage the pins enough that the proper key will no longer work!
Other:
It takes practice to learn it's use. If you think you can just pick it up and instantly open any lock... you are in for a disappointment.
It's noisy! You wont be sneaking around in the dead of night opening your neighbors doors, because said neighbor will be tapping you on the shoulder saying "What the hell do you think you're doing?"
Bottomline:
Looks like it's a modified electric drill.
For the price, it's ok, and if you have no skill at all in lock picking this may well be just what you need for the occasional times you need to open a lock without a key.
