Dave McOmie Pen Party


March 25-26, 2017

Every year for the past however many years, Rolland has hosted the Dave McOmie Pen Party at our Dallas Headquarters. We kick off 2017 with a new hosting site but the same atmosphere. Our Spring Dave McOmie class will be hosted at Mancini Safe in Boston, MA where we hope to cater to our Northern techs who are unable at times to make the trip down south. We are very excited to bring this event to you and show off the hospitality of Mancini Safe.


Who is Dave McOmie?


Under the supervision of Eugene Corey, Dave McOmie opened his first safe in the spring of 1972. He was hooked, and spent the next decade learning the craft. In August of 1986, He began writing a monthly column on safecracking for The National Locksmith magazine.


In the fall of 1992, in conjunction with National Publishing, He started The National Safeman’s Organization and have been its Director ever since.


Over the course of the last two decades, Dave has written 16 books on the arcana of safecracking, developing and refining drill points for most of the safes and vaults that have been used in the United States. After 33 years in this crazy and obscure business, He is still having the time of his life.

Deadline for our group rates: March 6th

Are meals included in the price?

Your class tuition includes breakfast and lunch for both days. Sunday lunch will be our traditional “family-style” lunch; you won’t be disappointed.

When is the deadline to sign up?

The deadline for Early-Bird Pricing is March 3rd. However, registration will stay open until March 17th.

Will spaces run out?

Keep in mind these classes do sell out. The earlier you register, the better. There will be a waiting list, but it doesn’t guarantee you a spot in the class.

Do I need to bring my own Tools?

Tools will not be supplied. For First Timers who are new to safe penetration, we recommend that you bring a drill, borescope, extra drill bits, a small ruler, and a small flash light. You might want to borrow a drill, rather than buy one, as you will see many versions of drill rigs and might see a set up that you think would work for you and invest in

Do we have to sit in a classroom the whole day?

No way!  Each morning session will feature Dave’s interesting and interactive 3 hour classroom presentation. After lunch, we will move to the Warehouse to get down to the business of tackling actual locked up safes! Dave will demonstrate safe opening techniques, and there will be lots of practice safes for the attendees to work on. In addition, you will have the opportunity to observe teams of seasoned safe techs and their approaches to different safe challenges.

If I have any questions, who do I contact?
