I know someone who has tons of lead *quite literally too* sitting around... linotype and lead bars for making bullets...

Never had to ship them / have them....Any worthwhile quantity would occur some horrible freight charges!

Yeah I'm not worried about ME it's the thought of getting a dusch bag roommate who dosn't understand what a $2500 systems means and when his lazy *** rolls out of bed in the morning he won't lock the door. So thats why I was wondering about a way to secure the equipment.
Thanks,
Ryan

Here in death's dominion
Where even shadows die
I am the one almighty
You will cry my name
And when you seek forgiveness
You will see there is no god
And for all eternity
You will cry my name
