If anyone sounds miserable its you. And obviously you cant respect opinions because you keep disagreeing and attacking people.

Welcome to ignore.
You could also mind your own business. Your sticking up for this guy like he's your little brother. I'm sure he can fight his own battles. Take a hike.

Buying an extra 15,000 pieces of anything is going to get costly fast.
What are some absolute cheap ideas for adding wieght to these bags, aside from rocks??
Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks
Put some dog crap in the bag...that should get you a lot of calls. The best part is it's free. In fact, you might even be able to charge people to pick it up and that should pay for your printing and fuel costs.

Oh, you need more suggestions? How about you print out your comments on these threads to show them how professional you really are?
