Balkan 3 Gun – Level 1 (Competent)


Perfect for teambuilding groups, Balkan 3 Gun is a tactical shooting competition for beginners which has seen nearly 400 students completing the Level 1 training over the last 4 years! Once you have completed Level 1, more advanced shooters should also look at Balkan 3 Gun – Level 2 as a good way of continuing their training efforts and maintaining their new standards. 


PrepYou Ranges in Sofia, Bulgaria

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 levels of ability of shooter; Competent (Level1), Proficient (Level 2) & 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 Pump-Action Shotgun.

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 2 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.
