    Makin me some home made firestarters for my trip into the wilderness. Take the cottonballs and get them covered in vasiline. Take cottonballs and stuff them into the empty shotgun shells. Crimp as much as you can and tape the ends. Doesnt take much spark to get em started. Also very compact. Can be used as emergency candles also.
