I just put mine in a cupboard, with a few dessicant, works fine so far. Otherwise, I just put them in their bags.

My gear is split between my Canon backpack and my Retro10. I try not to keep stuff scattered all over since its probably the most expensive stuff I own and if the building caught fire, its what I'd grab on my way out.

Just a word of caution about fire safes: mildew!

If you use one, open it often and use desiccants.

For Y2K I got one and stored some cash and documents in it. I loaded it in November and didn't open it again until January. The documents were ruined and the teller at the bank got really upset with me when I came in to deposit a stack of moldy bills.

Where did you have the safe? Not in the garage or a storage shed by chance?

It was in the house, not the garage, basement or shed. December in NJ is usually pretty dry.

The problem was, I think, that I didn't open it for at least 45 days.

Mine are normally in my camera bag. Camera bag is on a chair.

Often the cameras are near the 'charging station' as I take them out of the bags when I get home and charge the batteries so I'm ready to go....

Trunk of the car...every once in a while I hear one rolling around and I have to adjust the mess. My lighting gear stays in there all the time.

I keep some of it in the safe and some just laying around the office.
The safe is no problem as I am in and out of there a lot putting guns in and out.

Camera gear are in a drawer. I usually have some in a bag or out ready to go or take a shot at home.
