I picked my first lock today. A Master No. 3; they say it's one of the easiest. It must be true because I basically watched a YouTube video for about 2 minutes, and then went after it. It popped on the fourth try.
I may be late to the lock-picking party but I will probably continue to do this on a hobbyist level. I see the benefit for information security people: the vulnerabilities are hidden from view but laughably easy to exploit once you understand how the whole mechanism works.
