I had a major home burglery last week detailed more in the Lens forum:https://www.nikonians.org/forums/dcboard.php?az=show_topic&forum=146&topic_id=207841&mesg_id=207841&page=

Amazing to me, my D3 body and other camera bodies (they had a body cap/no lens on) were left, but the lenses were stolen.

Does anyone use a 'gun cabinet' or similar in the house, or other ideas to add some security deterrence to theft. We are installing a security system this week, etc., but any more ideas welcome.

I will also be adding 'business insurance' since if equipment is used for business, home insurance doesn't cover it (I just learned that in 2011, but hadn't 'gotten around' to doing it.

Has anyone used the insurance carrier that is mentioned in the NAPP discount page (for NAPP members)? Is there an insurance carrier that folks here like for the business side of camera equipment protection?

Thank you for any thoughts,

Vision is supreme,
