I have most of the above with the addition of needle files, chalk, sharpie, dremel, and hockey pucks for custom made bench blocks. Probably the most important is a set of hollow ground or "gunsmith" screwdrivers. Nothing will ruin the appearance of a firearm or just ruin screws faster than regular cheap screwdrivers.
