|Dave McComie Safecracking Class Follow Up
Last month, November 2013, Rolland Safe & Lock hosted our annual Dave McComie Safecracking Class. Safecracking enthusiasts from all over the nation traveled to Rolland’s headquarters in Dallas, TX to participate in this weekend of niche activities and training. Dave McComie is considered the guru of safecracking.
There are two types of fisherman in this world: the ones that keep their secret spots and lures to themselves and those that are eager to discuss with other enthusiast. The attendees of this class were certainly the latter. As they piled into Rolland, along with them came a vast array of tools and electronics of their trade. They were eager to swap stories, just as many fishermen, and just as eager to swap tools and give other safecrackers insight into the knowledge they had.
One of Rolland’s new employees, Jason, participated in the class. Jason, who has a background in IT and studied mechanical and electrical engineering, signed up for the class to help him better understand the systems he has been working on. When asked what he thought of the new subject, Jason said “I really enjoy troubleshooting and solving puzzles, so I found this class to be very interesting. Everyone there was extremely encouraging and excited to share their knowledge.”
There were a little over 30 safecrackers in attendance to the training class. Many of the safecrackers have been practicing their trade for their entire life. Rolland has a strong network of safe enthusiasts and we love to put these classes together because it expands our network and increases the skill within it. It is important to have the best technicians to service your safe because time and precision is the key. Literally.
