What is Sparrow’s Roulette?

Russian Roulette is a famous game of chance that most are familiar with.  Well, Sparrow’s Roulette is a play on that.  It is a pinning guide for the Sparrow’s Revolver practice lock.  The reason I created Sparrow’s Roulette is simple: When I consciously choose the pinning for a practice lock, I tend to remember some of the pins as I am picking.  Remembering where some of the pins are in a practice lock removes a lot the challenge from it.  But, I have found that if I follow a guide and just put the pins in as outlined, I tend to not remember what pins are quite as well.  And so because of that, I created a “random pinning generator” if you will.  Every time this page is displayed, a new pinning guide is created.


***Note*** As mentioned, this is specifically designed to be used with the Sparrows Revolver and their specialty pins, however, this can be easily adapted to any lock you are pinning up.
