Bad ignition switch?

Last weekend got in the truck and put the key in. Tried to start the motor key would not turn. Tried turning the wheel, moving the shifter and the tilt still would not turn. Gave up and came back later with the spare key and got it to work. I've drove the truck 7/8 times since with no problem's using the same original key (not spare key). Thinking about getting another key made if the original is wearing out. Before I do just wanted to check with you guy's. Anyone else had this happen? What was it, bad ignition switch or just a worn out key.

The key can wear out. Mine did this then I lost the spare key and had to change my ignition tumbler

That was my thought also, just a worn key. I went ahead and had a key made and just in case it was a sticking tumbler I lubed the cylinder. Still using the original key with the new spare on the ring just in case. I'm just waiting to see if it happens again and verify if it's the key. If not I hear the ignition tumblers can be rebuilt/replaced.

Thanks for resonding Keith!
