Putting together a sport "rack"

So I'm beginning to compile a list of items to begin leading sport. I've search and gotten a pretty good idea of what is needed, but I just wanted to get some confirmation and also suggestions for anything else that I should pick up.

I will be climbing mostly in the NW(Exit 32/38, broughton bluff, smith) and most likely mainly single pitch routes for now. I would also like to be able to set up a toprope off of the anchor bolts

Here is a list of items I either have or plan on purchasing:

8 short quickdraws
4 120cm 10cm spectra slings(tripled to make 4 more draws)
6 biners
2 locking biners
PAS with locking biner(for cleaning and rappeling)
ATC w/locker
Reverso 3? (for added friction belaying and eventually for multipitch)
Bail biner
60m Rope
Gear sling?

Is that enough gear to get me started or do I need more quickdraws and/or sling draws? My toprope anchor would consist of 2 of the slings with nonlocking biners for the bolts and locking biners for the rope end. This seems adequate but some recommend 4 lockers for the anchor, but others still just recommend using quickdraws.

Let me know what you guys think. Thanks
