My neighbor makes all kinds of things out of that stuff. He has made some rifle slings but they aren't really all tha comfortable. I have sen some that are like little "billy's" with a golf ball size knot in the end. Look like it would hurt like hell to get hit by it.

Thx Gary but I hate ordering small stuff. I'm hoping to find a store local that sells stuff like that.

The Army/Navy store by me sells them

Also, keep in mind that is not real paracord. Paracord is also called "550 cord" because its got a tensile strength of 550 pounds, and is also nylon. Not that it matters...but if you were ever to sell something made out of it, you would want to use the real thing
Also, pull your cobra stitch tighter as you tie it :cool2

The Army/Navy store sells 50 and 100 foot packs of various colors. You can also buy bulk spools of 100-1000 feet online.
So far I have made key fobs for all my key rings, 4 wheeler key. Neck strap for my lease gate key. Dog collars for both my dogs. Key fob for my wife that matches her dogs collar. Neck lanyard for GPS, neck lanyard for range finder. Knife lanyards. Probably more crap than I am forgetting.
I was going to start making stuff to sell, but it is NOT cost effective to buy the small packs of paracord. And I didn't have the money to invest in a bunch of bulk spools of various colors
