When our residential locksmiths are called out to a job which requires us to regain entry to the property, we will always opt to picking the lock with other non destructive methods first before we reach for a drill, real locksmiths hate the drill if truth be told, there is no pride in drilling a lock and by doing so causes a great deal of mess, not to mention you'll definitely require a new lock fitting which the customer would be billed for. This is an old trick used by fake locksmiths aka D.I.Y cowboys.
