SurvivalBlog’s News From The American Redoubt

Here is SurvivalBlog’s News From The American Redoubt. This weekly column features news stories and event announcements from around the American Redoubt region. We also mention companies of interest to preppers that are located in the region. The emphasis this week is on the new $1 million CNC mill at Lone Wolf Distributors.


I’m repeating a link to a must-watch video. Please send this to any of your conservative friends who feel the need to move away from the liberal coastal states, but can’t decide where to go: What is the American Redoubt?

Lone Wolf Distributors in Priest River is a company that is already familiar to many Glock owners. They are one of SurvivalBlog’s affiliate advertisers. The Newport Miner newspaper recently reported that it took two semi-trailers to bring in a new automated horizontal mill to Lone Wolf Distributors. Their latest CNC mill cost in the vicinity of $1 million USD. With that specialized high-volume equipment now available, it is safe to assume that Lone Wolf will branch out into a variety of new milled products. A wider variety of pistol slides? Or registered suppressors, perhaps? They’re not saying yet. Buy knowing the high quality of their existing products, their new CNC offerings should be great.

  1. Sad that a young family is dead in an terrible accident. That could have been prevented. The car (70’s Corolla) plus the trailer is too much weight for the 4 runner. I don’t care what the manufacturer says it can tow. Also loaded backwards, so less tongue weight. Quite likely they got into a fast braking situation where the trailer took over (fishtailing) and pushed them off the road.
    Towed many hundreds of cars with pickups and had a few scary moments, but those you live through you learn from.
