Antifa “Gun Club” Responds To Fake Gun Critics With Laughable “Range Day” Intimidation Video

By , in Exposing MSM Lies Guns on . Tagged width:

In March of 2017, Free Market Shooter exposed the “Phoenix John Brown Gun Club”, which, according to many observers showed anti-Trump “counter protesters” showing up to a pro-Trump rally in Phoenix, Arizona openly carrying what appeared to be fake firearms:

The only reference to firearms training was in their “events” page, which had an event that took place on March 5th, titled “Introduction to Tactical Firearms”.  It had 46 guests.  There were no upcoming events, and the prior four events had absolutely nothing to do with firearms.

Not much of a “gun club” at all, is it?  Would you really be surprised to find out that many of their members didn’t even carry real firearms to an “open carry” demonstration against a Trump rally?

The group has appeared to respond to criticisms of “LARPing” with fake guns by releasing a YouTube video entitled “Phoenix John Brown Gun Club – Range Day”.  But this video ends up exposing not only the group’s laughable lack of experience with firearms, it all but confirms the (even more difficult to deny) accusation that their “open carry” demonstration did include several fake firearms.

The video (still up on YouTube when this article was published) is below:

And, for reference, the photos from the prior article Free Market Shooter article are featured here as well:

The shooting “range” in question during this video appears to be a spot in the desert.  The “range” is littered with trash, as it appears PJBGC doesn’t bother to pick up after themselves.  With a maximum distance of about 50 meters, most shooting takes place at what appears to be about 50 feet, if that… including the rifle “shootout” segments of the video.

Bear in mind, the US Army Field Manual on marksmanship indicates that the weapon is zeroed (sighted) at 25 meters, with qualified training taking place at 50 meters or further, and a maximum scored distance of 300 meters.  Then again, even at the shorter distances, PJBGC doesn’t even seem particularly concerned with zeroing their weapons at all.

This is evident in their “shootout” starting at 2:09.  I counted a number of shots completely missing the targets, at a distance that was no greater than 25 meters, most likely much closer than that.  Bear in mind what the US Army Manual states on 25-meter “zeroing”:

After completing Phases I and II, the Soldier conducts a firing event (Table 7-29) to zero or confirm the zero on his weapon and reinforce the fundamentals of marksmanship. This firing event will be conducted on a 25-meter range. If the Soldier cannot zero within 18 rounds, the trainer recommends retraining, retesting, or possible removal from the course. After the weapon is zeroed, any additional rounds will be fired and the coach will observe the Soldier for deficiencies in his marksmanship fundamentals.

But don’t worry, certainly the PJBGC has other marksmanship qualifiers outside of the US Army Manual, right?

Take a closer look at two of the people who participated in said “shootout”:

The one on the left appears at many points throughout the video, including a bayonet “intimidation” charge which will be discussed later.   He appears to be the same man who appeared in the above photos from the March rally in a blue shirt, and can be seen wearing what appear to be the same pants, shoes, bandana and accessory pouch at the PJBGC “Range Day” as he did in March, only with a white shirt this time.

What’s different about him this time besides the shirt?  The firearm, of course… because at no point in the video does any “drum” magazine appear to be used at all, by anyone.  In fact, the “blue shirt” man in question from the top “counter protest” photo (on the left) appears to be using the wooden SKS-style rifle carried by the guy on the right of the first photo throughout the entire “Range Day” video.

As for the one circled on the right?  She is seen firing an AK-style rifle during the video, and when her rifle appears to jam, she appears to not only perform several “dry” trigger pulls, she also appears to have no idea how to clear the jam.  Which is hardly surprising, as she is seen later in the video at 4:21 firing a completely different rifle, under supervision of a man in camo gear, who appears to supervise nearly all of the “Range Day” participants.

Yes, the SKS appears to be the one of the only real rifles from the entire group that appeared in the March photos above, as the others made no appearance whatsoever at the PJBGC “Range Day”.  The only other exception is the large scoped AR-derivative rifle (note the ultra-lite stock) which would likely be designed for ideal use at 100+meters… being fired at a distance at no more than 10 meters.  It appears to be fired by the dreadlocked red bandana girl from the above photos which also appears to be the rifle she she toted in March, at 1:08:

Notice: not only does she need to fire said rifle with supervision from the man in camo overlooking; just seconds earlier, the same exact rifle with the low-profile stock in question was seen being carried by another participant at the “arming table”, while she was standing right next to the person

…and the rifle in question is later seen appearing to be fired by the above girl in red stripes during the other “shootout” at 5:14.  If this is indeed a real rifle, it is almost certainly not owned by the woman who toted it at the open carry “counter protest”, even if the owner let her fire off a few rounds for appearance’s sake.

In fact, with the exception of the aforementioned SKS, and the scoped AR with the low-profile stock, none of the other weapons pictured at the “counter protest” appear anywhere in the “Range Day” video.  While there are clearly many real rifles sprinkled into the group, three out of four of the “fake ones” in the second photo of the “counter protest” have all but confirmed to be fake after all, including the one carried in March by Mr. Bayonet Charge…

…who is the aforementioned “white shirt” guy who toted a fake gun at March’s “counter protest”, this time executing a “bayonet charge” on a thoroughly shot-up “Pepe the Frog” target with the SKS he is seen shooting earlier… of course, with supervision:

Do not take this the wrong way – there is absolutely nothing wrong with first-time and/or beginner shooters learning how to both handle firearms and the proper fundamentals of marksmanship.  In fact, you’ll notice most shooters welcome first-timers to shooting ranges, and teach them how to handle firearms properly and safely… which appears to be the one thing PJBGC gets right – safe usage of firearms under controlled conditions.  The more people who understand safe operation of firearms, the better off we all are.

Still, it was clearly far too easy to expose the inexperience and overall lack of firearms proficiency this “gun club” chooses to assign to itself, all while shooting a video intended to intimidate its adversaries.  These are clearly beginners, with a glaring lack of general marksmanship skills, masquerading as a trained combat-ready group, openly carrying firearms in an attempt to show pro-Trump supporters just how tough they are… or in this case, aren’t.

Take note, PJBGC… real “gun guys” are not fooled.  It is rather easy to see how capable (or incapable) you are with a firearm after watching your “intimidation video”.  You can strap up and act tough, but you better be careful if you plan on making yourself a target… when the bullets start flying, that firearm you’re toting isn’t going to do you much good (beyond putting a big bulls-eye on your back) if you can’t fire it accurately.  Of course, that all assumes the gun is even real in the first place, and not one of the fake ones exposed being carried in March.

But, good luck trying to explain that to PJBGC… in spite of the negative response they’ve received to this video, it is rather difficult for you to explain that to them – they made sure to disable comments for the video.

        Is that a rebuttal Dumb-Fuck (DF)? I guess you think ANTIFA is actually anti-fascist, right? While using the EXACT same tactics as the Brown Shirts. By using tactics that are text book, Dictionary terrorism. All you got is some stupid rhetorical statement?

        Totally, ANTIFA is the new Boy/Girl/XI/Zir scouts. They make cookies and help old ladies cross the road safely.

    • milesman

      Over throw the gov? They wouldn’t make it all the way down my particular street!

    • Another POV

      Very correct. Sure, these antifa clowns are bad, laughably bad now. But where did anyone really start? I see this from an entirely different view. Having spent a lifetime estimating enemy strength and capability for my careers, they are starting out, and they will only get better. High-speed better? Probably not. So they have a very cautious range officer walking them thorough the drills. Get your newbie audience addicted to guns by doing simple, fun and symbolic shooting. Did you shoot at targets from 100 yards your first time? The majority have not been in the military and never will be. These aren’t Marine recruits that have an entire week of training before they shoot a round. They are spoiled, short attention span snowflakes that need to be coaxed in. For some, they need to be convinced guns aren’t evil. So blast away at some shit 20 yards away where you can see the damage being dealt and not miss (too much).

      That silly line drill/Rev war style formation. Ill conceived for tactical purposes but if your intent is to get people who’ve never fired a gun, get used to having guns fired around them, not bad. In combat, sometimes your are right on top of another guy. How else do you learn to shoot or concentrate while hot brass is falling around you if you never get military, actual military training?

      I don’t underestimate these clowns. Fire enough rounds, you’ll hit something. Luck plays a big part on any battlefield. These idiots are committed and thoroughly brainwashed. They’ll get people to train them. They’ll get better and laughing at them only steels their resolve. For now they are a joke, but what are you doing to keep your skills sharp. Do you train with a group? My infantry skills are rusty, I won’t lie. How are yours?

      • WithoutRights

        Having been out of the Army for 15 years, I am rusty on field tactics and maneuvers, but I shoot every week and have retained my firearms effectiveness. I see their exercise as a massive waste of ammo. I believe it was meant to be an intimidation psyop rather than a training exercise. From a legal standpoint, this is sedition and Constitutional subversion and all these terrorists should be arrested. Training with the admitted goal of carrying out a coup and destroying the Constitutional rule of law is a felony which should be met with great contempt.

        • Mr. Kevin Jones

          I retired 14 years ago after 28 years of service…I feel the same.

    • tdrag

      That’s right! Just like Kim Dung Pile, these idiots will get it right sooner or later. There are a lot of them in our military now being trained.

  • Bach Matthew

    Haha haha! Can barley hit the target at 15 yards. Look out, liberals think they are soldiers now. I bet me alone with a ar15 could desimate this whole crowd.

    • Peter Williams

      As soon as a shot was fired, they’d all piss their panties and cower behind each other. Here’s hoping they do let off a round at one of their ‘rallies’ so that they can then be treated as the domestic terrorists they are and be killed on the spot.

  • DF

    For all the whining right wing people do about how leftist protestors “need to get a life” y’all sure do spend a lot of time picking apart pointless minutiae in videos involving guns

    • James Russels

      It’s comically obvious how inexperienced this “gun club” is at shooting. This is some low hanging fruit here.

      • Peter Williams

        I’m just amazed none of them shot themselves in the foot!!

  • Pete L

    Well considering that they are NOTHING but a terrorist organization, letting them arm themselves makes them immediately targets for self defense fire. The time for talk, tolerance and ignoring these terrorists is over…..time for LIVE ROUNDS from our police

  • Michelle

    They can always learn…never underestimate evil.

    • Sir_Tanly

      That is correct. They will get to where they can hit at 50 yards 50% of the time and, in the time it takes to realize that they are serious this time. they will have punched a lot of holes in the hamburger.

  • Passlinebet

    It’s all fun and games until it’s a real fire fight….Real easy to try to look cool against paper targets…

    • John Collins

      Yep, that paper doesn’t shoot back, and they looked like they were missing more than they were hitting anyway!

    • Peter Williams

      From 10′ away as well!!

      • 13speed

        “Where is the safest place to be on a gun range when antifa fucksticks who are pretending they actually know which end of a firearm the loud noise comes out of?” for $1000, Alex.

    • Faridah Malik

      Considering they are generaly too cowardly to show their faces during a protest in fear of being apprehended by the “fascist” police and subsequently getting a beating from their parents… I’m not surprised about all this at all. As the article says, they’re just LARPing, in an actual firefight against trained adversaries, they’d survive barely even a minute.

  • Robert Zeurunkl

    I like how ALL their videos are “comments disabled”. And here I thought they were *against* the suppression of free speech.

    And they appear to be using rifles to shoot targets at, what? Ten yards? Pistol range?

    And what’s with the awkward “scrunched over” stance with these guys? It’s like, “Hey, I need to put my eye right up to the scope so I can see through it”.

    Dang, I’d like to hand one of them my .300 WinMag and say, “Here ya go, champ! Now make sure you get real close to the scope so you can see through it!”

  • The

    Dangerous LARPing. These are delusionally idealistic, deeply naive children. Getting a gun in the US is trivially easy. Bringing a gun to a political protest as a member of a group known to be violently hostile towards its opposition is taking this to a level they do not comprehend. This is no different than idiots who decide to ‘protest’ in the middle of the street, harass some driver who is forced to run them over. If Antifa takes it to the ‘guns’ level, they will be ‘run over’ very, very quickly and won’t make much of a showing. They will be quickly rendered into cautionary tale corpses, warning other stupid kids who might think about following in their foolish footsteps.

  • Noodies Man

    You think they got safety right? That’s the most unsafe firing line I’ve ever seen at anything even pretending to be an organized event. 20 or so newbies within 1 ft of each other, firing live rounds. Yeah, that’s in the Army manual as well, right? (Note: I have never actually read the Army manual for constructing ranges, but I know there is one, and I’m certain it specifies more spacing)

And there are no second chances when the rounds are coming your way.

    I’m more than proficent with firearms but I dont own any, let alone carry, as I am not prepared to shoot someone. Even some random Antifa scumbag. Not yet anyways.

    This sort of radicalization can only happen from years of indoctrination.
