SurvivalBlog’s News From The American Redoubt

This weekly column features news stories and event announcements from around the American Redoubt region. (Idaho, Montana, eastern Oregon, eastern Washington, and Wyoming.) Much of the region is also more commonly known as The Inland Northwest. We also mention companies of interest to preppers and survivalists that are located in the American Redoubt region. Today, we focus on the listing for sale of Lolo Sporting Goods. (See the Idaho section.)


The liberal BuzzFeed managed to get most the facts straight in this piece about the Redoubt: The Fight to Bear Arms.

H.R.1321 – The Northern Rockies Ecosystem Protection Act may die in committee. This is a bad piece of legislation introduced back in February, by a New York Democrat.  The bill would create umpteen new wilderness areas, block existing roads, and make these areas vulnerably to wildfires. Please contact your congresscritter, and ask them to oppose this over-reaching and land-grabbing legislation. It has 41 co-sponsors. One of them, Elijah Cummings, recently died. So should this legislation.


I just heard that a gun store with some interesting history is for sale, in Lewiston, Idaho. Any shooter who lives in north central Idaho is probably familiar with Lolo Sporting Goods. This shop was a regular haunt of gun writers Elmer Keith and Jack O’Connor, back in the day. With its plank floors and pressed tin ceiling, it has an old-fashioned feel. Presently, in addition to its walk-in clientele, it also has an online presence, mainly selling through Now that America is fully in the depth of The Trump Slump, I believe that it is a good time to buy any gun-related business. I inquired, and the $319,000 asking price for Lolo sporting Goods does not include the building, but it does include all of their very extensive inventory. Serious inquiries only can be directed to: (208) 743-1031.

Stag Arms Announces Move From Connecticut to Wyoming. JWR’s Comment: It is inevitable that even more gun makers will move to the Redoubt. I find it comical that the television news reporters tried to make the move to Wyoming look shady and nefarious.  In fact, the real shady characters are the anti-gun legislators in Connecticut who are inspiring such relocation.

  1. News reporters on Stag Arms move: Anti-Constitutional propaganda. More and more and more often. How damn dumb do you have to be to intentionally and actively undermine your own Constitutional Rights?

    By the time that they realize the enormity of their mistake it will be far too late.

    1. They are so stupid here in the north east. Doing their best to flush Remington out of new york if they dont go bankrupt first. They would rather give billions to draw company to come here rather then help the ones that are left.

  2. Cougars have been roaming around in Meadow Springs for decades. When I lived there at the golf course, there were all sorts of critters roaming around. I had pheasant and quail, squirrels, raccoons, rabbits, owls, snakes, gophers, and grouse roaming around my back yard, which segued right onto the 14th fairway. There were plenty of spore and tracks of predators all around, including cougar, back then. The worst of the lot were house cats, which were allowed to roam the neighborhoods in violation of both the law and covenants. More than a few of those were trapped and relocated in prime coyote territory far away from town, which helped preserve the pheasant, squirrel, and quail populations.

    Some people just never learn. Then too late, they realize the harm they’ve caused, not only to the natural environment, but also to the pets they refuse to maintain, which also end up in the food chain.

  3. I used to work with Nathan Nash before he was a cop. He was fired for choking out an armed colleague at the Hanford site while guarding five tons of plutonium. Somehow the union got his job back for him a year later. Doesn’t surprise me he does something like this so soon after getting some real authority. Guess Spokane didn’t do a very thorough background check.

    1. Wizard,this is exactly the type PDs are screening for. Watch the video of the Chicago cop body slamming,head first into a curb a handcuffed person. If that video had not been taken the victim would have been charged with assaulting a officer,video should of been held til cop filed his false report to show what liars they are.
