    I'm not so worried about the Speed Graphic. It is in need of CLA and minor repairs. It would only get used on rare occasions. I could leave that one open without too much worry. However, of the bellows need dressing, I suppose I could do that.

    I don't believe in leaving temptation in peoples way, I store my cameras and lenses in two locked Peli cases inside a locked steel fireproof office cupboard, having being burgled before in my
    previous house I don't want to make it too easy for thiefs.

    I switch them around from time to time, but I don't have a display as such, I have cameras on a shelf here and there. I like to have some out w/the bellows open for a time; seems better to store them closed but I've bought some that had probably been closed up for a lot of years - seems good to open and use them if they're still functioning.

    I store my cameras with film in them ready to go. I don't own a gun rack, but my ar15 and 1911 are always loaded ready to go.

    I have an old Kodak No. 3A that looked like new until I displayed it open. The beautiful red bellows faded over time. I did not realize it until it was too late, I saw another one that had been kept closed. I would display them closed in a dust free cabinet.
