I am looking into purchasing a Pelican 1514 case to both store my equipment at home, and to lock it up in the car.
Sometimes when my wife and I go out I want to take our camera gear with us, but then need/want to leave it in the car if we go out to eat or into a store. I tend to get very uncomfortable leaving it all in the car due to theft.
I do have all of my gear insured, but I would rather not deal with it if I don't have to. I know keeping my gear with me is the best solution, but not always practical. My question is, if I lock the Pelican case with two padlocks and lock it to the inside of the car with a chain, do you think this would help detour theft enough to be more comfortable leaving it in the car? Is it hard to pry open when locked closed?
Thanks in advance!
