If you decide to go with shot, I'd make sure it's not lead as you've got a little one in the house.

Yup, no lead for me.

Funny, I remember that box of balls. Reminds me of golf balls. In theory, I could use my old golf balls, but I lose about a box of balls for every 18 holes so that wouldn't really work for me...

You would be able to find steel shot at most hunting supply stores.

Since you're dropping it down the main tube of the speaker stands I think lead shot is probably fine. Lead shot is cheaper and heavier, plus it comes in nice cloth bags which are a pain in the *** to open even for a young child.

I couldn't find any Cabela's or Bass Pro Shops near you, but any decent gun store will sell lead shot for reloading shotgun shells.

As a cheap alternative, could you seal the stand enough that you could just fill it with sand? Of course I live near the shore so for me, sand is like duct tape.

I've got a 2 yr old and 5 yr old. Sand in the house? Oh no, I don't want to clean that accident...

Sounds like steel shot, then.
