    Posted: 18 June 2004 at 10:31am

 I just built a tree fort on my half speedball and have woodsball course and I am havin trouble on a way to get your gun down to the ground.I thought about making a little thing on my camo jacket so the clip on my 98c could just clip on that while I slide down the rope but only four out of like eight of us have tippmanns so do you all have any ideas?

it would be cool to just have a big basket attached to a rope. line it with a couple blankets, and just lower it down and have the other end of the rope attached to the fort so they could pull it up.  and make sure its big enough to hold multiple guns

Yea the basket is an idea but we have the rope at angle so when you come down you really swing down. So far we have a dog leash to clip on the trigger gaurd.But no one wants to do that.And only one person can fit in the tree fort at a time.  

 And I can't build stairs because the bark is really hard to get off and it's like 4 inches thick.

The problem I had with tree forts is getting the gun up, but if you get hit while climbing it, or when you up there, there was the chance I could fall.

P.S. I fell while testing it

Tree forts are death traps, they are wothless. you get stuck up in there with no way down.

Yeah, never stay in a tree fort, some people I know had one, and they used shingles as walls. Well they didnt think a paintball could go through it either. All I did was stand behind a tree and open up on full auto, marking them many times. What a waste of time and work for them. Besides, if I saw someone trying to climb a tree fort I would deffinitly take them as my first target. There without a weapon, and climbing slow. But my whole opinion on the thing is, dont use it at all because someone may fall and get you in a possible law-suit.

Well thats fine if you dont use it for paintball. But even if there good at climbing trees, a ball going 300 FPS can make a person fall, especially if they aim in the right place.

 Before I state my opinion, I will answer your question. Jsut do it the hunter's way. Lower the damn thing down on a rope. If you want, you can pull up the 4 corners of a shirt or old towel and tie it to a rope to make a basket like thing. Now, If I were you, I would take the fort down and use the wood (and some more wood) to build a ground fort. If you can find a hill to put it on, then you're set for a fun "take the fort" game. If you can find two hills really close, then you have it made (just build another fort).

Use a milk crate to haul up yer equipment to the tree fort, several markers, hoppers and several boxes of paint can placed in it at the sametime....milk crates are easy find, jus grab the biggest one you can find at yer local grocery store....I have several and I put all my junk in em.

Use the same concept as a 2 handled tote bag.

What you need is team work. We got 3 tree stands on our course. Your team needs to lay cover fire while team mate goes up. With your teammate up in the stand he can then get better angles on opposing team. Once a few of your teammates have been taken out get out of tree stand before your surrounded.

Some one said tree stands are death traps but if you don't have any retards on your team then tree stands are great.

you need to buy a sling so you can have it on your back but you also need 2 improve the fort by supporting your fall down with like a wooden wall er somthin. plus improve your fort  by buying some boards that with hold.

 

 

 

trus me i have a 98c with only one upgrade,a 16" sniper barrel and a sling

snipers in WWII in the pacific were deadly when they started firing. as soon as they were spotted, it was a long way down. japanese, snipers, they went the way of the coconut. CRASH!
