    The magnesium stick is excellent... I was gonna suggest a small Leatherman-type multi-tool... or a Swiss Army knife...?

    If we keep this up, he's gonna need a Samsonite...

    Paracord can be had here:

    550 Paracord Parachute Cord

    Here are some wrapping ideas, just apply the same concept to the rifle:

    Good start, follow the advice like the dryer lint and paracord.

    While we're at at, how about stuffing some worms in there to use as bait for the hooks? Kind of hard to dig for worms while the stuff is hitting the fan.

    All kidding a side, that looks like a really nice set up.

    Also a small pocketknife would come in handy.
    You can also saturate cotton balls with Vasoline, yep, Vasoline and it burns readily and for a lonnnnng time. They can be ignited with a spark.

    Maybe this is too obvious, (I didn't see it mentioned) but do you routinely carry a multi-tool to take the screws off the butt-plate to get to the stuff?
    Great work though.

    On the matches, remember; Run a damp one through your hair 12-15 times before striking....usually lights right up when you strike it. Unless of course your hair is wet too. Then just sit in the rain and wonder why you didn't pack the lighter instead.

    You would be surprised how well those soda tabs work at attacting catfish and bass. Especially catfish.

    Yes I always carry at least one knife on my person. Unfortunately I have a bad habit of breaking the tips off the blades by using them for prying. But the good thing is that my little folder I always carry works perfectly on the back screws of the rifle.

    I am thinking of either making a sling out of mule tape or making a sling out of leather and then wrapping it in mule tape. I prefer mule tape to paracord because it is generally cheaper and I believe stronger. (The stuff I have is rated for 2000lbs.)

    Generally speaking this is my rabbit gun, and I set it up like this mostly out of boredom, but also of the fear that I would get lost in the woods while tracking down wraskalie wabbits.

    Will give the lighter some thought.

    Also for waterproofing I was thinking of just dipping the end in hot wax and then pressing on the back plate to create a sort of gasket. Any idea how well that would work?

    Google Image Result for http://www.newtechindustries.com/newtech/premier_telecom/images/neptco.jpg

    Basicially it is a woven fabric tape that can be used for lots of things including tow straps on the heavier duty models. I believe it tops out at 6000 pounds test strength.

    If you're going to dip them in wax dip the whole match because it they are exposed to water for a prolonged period of time he stick will wick the water to the heads and they will still get wet.
