Is there any reason to prefer wand or staff? Wands are lighter...

I can get rid of the 4 dex ring, right?

Don't reduce !CCW, reduce !CSW.

Regarding your subsequent question on wands versus staffs, staffs usually have a wider area of effect. For example, wand of sleep monster affects one monster whereas staff affects all in LOS (although personally, I keep many of either except wands of drain life, annihilation, teleport other, and maybe some other offensive ones and staff of mapping or teleportation).

Ah, I hadn't noticed it's wand of confuse monster, but staff of confuse monsters. Good point on CSW, I'll put them in the house, but it's full also.

The only stat ring I'd care about for hobbit ranger is con. The others don't effect a bow, it's only going to be an issue of whether you can get the hps. Chances are you can find enough con else where to use speed rings instead.

.
I think this might of been fixed in recent versions. If you have x no. of wands & x-1 charges it's the same odds as an empty device

Besides destroying 1 when you have 2 isn't so bad and if you don't have rblind you'll probably want 2 teleport staves to deal with accidents

I don't play 4.1.2, so i don't know how ranger shots were changed in that version (in older versions rangers get +1 shot at level 20 and one more at level 40).
But i would take a look at the ammo you store at home.
After next recall i would equip the sling and check how much damage the different types do compared to the basic (0:0) arrows (and probably drop most of them). I know that your sling is weaker than your bow but i bet you will never use most of those pebbles and iron shots.
Also carrying 5 types of books with 45 SP seems to much to me, but it depends on playstyle (what spells you use from them and how often). For example i normally don't carry book 2, teleport staff or scroll is enough. Book 4 may also be something to think about, TO/haste is probably too much mana and too high failure rate (at least to my taste, i don't rest just to retry haste again).
You have temp resist activation on your cloak, don't forget to use it (but i would still carry the resistances book).

Ranger will never use the crossbow, either. He gets no extra shot, so an x3 bow is strictly better than an x3 crossbow. An endgame Ranger will always, always use a bow--Bard or an x5 Lothlorien longbow if he can get it.

Haven't seen any speed - right now I want STR since I'm encumbered losing speed and bow damage. I lost some STR drinking a potion...

Thanks for the reminder - I had forgotten that was on the cloak because it didn't seem to matter when I thought it was not useful.
