The Balkan 3 Gun

Three Gun Competitions are nothing new. The aim is simple, to shoot as many targets as quickly, safely and as accurately as possible from all three weapon systems; usually a carbine (M4 or similar), 9mm pistol and a 12 Gauge Shotgun.

The PrepYou.Eu Balkan 3 Gun is based on the traditional three gun but caters for three different level of ability of shooter; Competent, Proficient & Skilled and takes into account the core skills of tactical shooting; Marksmanship, Speed, Discipline & Attention to detail.

This means all levels of shooters can learn, compete and get the amazing videos they want for their own social media or showreels so is a perfect activity for corporate team building.

The PrepYou.Eu Balkan 3 Gun is our own variation but uses the AK Platform (Kalashnikov) instead of the AR. The pistol is Glock 17 and Shotgun is a “baby Pump-Action” with a five-round magazine.

Students are usually novices with no training before they visit PrepYou.Eu. Prior to competing in their first Balkan 3 Gun timed “gun run”, all students pass basic Weapon Competency – AK47, Glock and pump-action shotgun – earning their Competency Certificates before attempting the 35-40 meter course for the first time.

Students will move around the course to three separate firing bays. In each they have to load the respective weapon and engage all 8 Targets as fast and as accurately as possible before unloading that weapon and moving at speed to the next firing bay.

Your score is based on your time, rounds on target (minus 5 seconds per round on target) and time is added for minor safety violations (30 secs each) or disqualified for major infringements.

The student has a Range Safety Officer (RSO) at all times whilst shooting.

Balkan 3 Gun - Level 1 - Competent

Balkan 3 Gun - Level 2 - Proficient

Students are usually existing PrepYou.Eu students. They will have already passed their Weapon Competency – AK47, Glock and pump-action shotgun.

Students will move around the course to three separate firing bays. In each they have to load the respective weapon and engage all 12 Targets as fast and as accurately as possible before unloading that weapon and moving at speed to the next firing bay.

Loading takes place “in cover” and the student carries all their ammunition (apart from Shotgun) for the Gun Run on their persons.

Your score is based on your time, rounds on target (minus 5 secs per RoT) and time is added for minor safety violations (30 secs each) or disqualified for major infringements.

The student completes the course alone.

Students usually spend at least 3-4 days per year training with PrepYou.Eu and have completed their Skilled Weapon Competency.

This Gun Run is longer than the Competent & Proficient Gun Runs and is conducted on our 135m Range.

Students will move around the 150 meter plus course to multiple points of cover. Their weapons and ammo are carried at al times (mag pouches, holsters and slings required – Apart from shotgun which is “found” down range… somewhere!) as the engage 20 targets including moving targets.

Your score is based on your time, rounds on target (minus 5 secs per RoT) and time is added for minor safety violations (30 secs each) or disqualified for major infringements. Unlike the Competent & Proficient Gun Runs, you are also scored on “Use of Force”. Due to the excess ammunition you will carry, you will be awarded an extra 5 seconds for every round not fired if all 20 targets have been successfully engaged.

The student has a Range Safety Officer (RSO) following them down range at all times.
