Ok, here is my thought on the subject... If someone wants your stuff bad enough, they are going to find a way to snatch it. Most equipment thefts are by opportunity. Someone will notice a nice gat laying on a table unattended, BAM its theirs!! If you have you stuff locked/secured and someone next to you doesn't, that other person will be the one on here with a sob story of their stuff getting stolen.
Point: Make your stuff a hard target. Secure your stuff, and/ or keep positive control of it at all times.
