PrepYou.Eu (A brand owned by Advisory Bulgaria EOOD) was established in the Spring of 2017 by Simon Feek, a former British Soldier who saw a major gap in the market for high-quality security and firearms training for civilians in Europe.

To this day there are very limited options for private individuals to get hands-on with firearms in the EU with the majority being pointless and unprofessional tourist shooting experiences or “Bodyguard Academies” that claim to turn a novice into a Special Forces Operator in 5 days. We endeavour to be very, very different!

PrepYou.Eu (and more recently Juliet7) has strived for nearly 8 years to disrupt both of these types of operations and with over 8,000 students trained to date, it seems to be working! 

PrepYou.Eu is proud of its 100% Safety Record since the company was formed in 2017

PrepYou & Juliet7 Range Complex in Lozen, Sofia, Bulgaria

Live Fire Training Facilities

Located just 15 mins from Sofia city centre, our six-bay range complex is set in a stunning mountain location surrounded by forest. We shoot to distances up to 150m with both static and moving targets from under-cover and bench rest shooting positions.

Dynamic & Team based shooting is possible under proper supervision by a certified Firearms Instructors (Bulgarian/EU qualified) or with the additional supervision of our highly-experienced in-house Range Safety Officers (RSOs).

We work 7 days a week, 365 days a year regardless of the weather conditions.

Live Weapon Systems

The PrepYou.Eu Armoury is one of the most advanced and largest of any training provider in the region. We have invested heavily in our weapons and maintain them to the very highest standard. Although we prefer the iconic and advanced Bulgarian-made Kalashnikov we have a variety of calibres and variants as well as other familiar carbines such as AR-15 and more in stock. Of course, we have a full and modern optics package for our weapons including red dots, reflex and magnifiers suitable for battle rifles. 

We also have small-frame carbines and Submachine guns, magazine-fed tactical shotguns and a wide variety of 9mm pistols favouring the latest generation Glock and Sig Sauer service pistols.

We have all weapons ancillaries in stock from shooter/war belts, slings, holsters, chest rigs, ballistic plates and helmets so can in fact equip and arm multiple teams for their training requirements.

All safety equipment is available with the majority being from market leader 3M
