anyone have a Safe at Home large enough for 400mm,500mm,600mm..etc lenses ?


How many of you with large size lenses have a safe at home large enough for the lens to fit in ?

After purchasing my ME-Super in the early 80's I decided to purchase a safe and can't remember why I went for a large Rifle-safe as I've never owner a weapon.

Having just purchased the 600mm f4D ED-IF AF-S II lens , security of the lens & equipment is a prime concern and I am very pleased in having purchased a Rifle-Safe as the lens can fit in the safe as seen below.

Yesterday I looked for a carry / travel-bag for the lens + body that could also be used as hand luggage when flying as well as for the general carrying of the lens at locations and decided on the Tamrac 5793 rather than the LowePro 600. Not only is the Tamrac a bit more slender but it's about half the price of the Lowepro.

What do you carry your large lens + body in ?    Been okay on flights ?

Below are images of the Safe + Bag.
