Just use Ferrocerium. Maybe that with Mg bars to make real fires.

Strike anywhere matches in a BB gun rifle.
Shoot at soft pines and it will stick in and light.
shoot at hard objects and will make a snap sound.

I still use wooden kitchen matches for lighting the bar-b-q and candles. I do have some real 'strike anywhere' matches in my survival kit stored in a waterproof container.

I remember my mom dropping a box of the strike anywhere matches while setting them on the grocery store counter back in the late fifties, POOF, the box just went up in a big cloud of flames and smoke when they hit the floor. Nobody thought much about it, the checkout girl just yelled for the stock boy to bring a mop and another box.
When I was growing up, my sister went in the kitchen one night, turned on the light and saw a big cockroach in the middle of the floor. She screamed and we all ran to the kitchen to find it full of smoke - she had thrown a box of kitchen matches at the cockroach and it went off! There was a big black spot on the floor in addition to the smoke. Never found out what happened to the cockroach! This was sometime in the '50s.
