take old blankets and place them on top of each other, then nail them to 2x4's on the shorter sides (rectangular blanket) and pull it really tight, and nail them between trees. and depending on how well, or if you understand my confusing explanation, paintballs wont go through, they'll bounce off because the blankets will absorb the impact. it works with any tightly woven fabric.

me and bluemunkey42 built our own woodsball couse in my backyard. we use cinder blocks stacked like brick walls,wood stacks of choped up trees, a rlly kull stone wall bunker, big sheets of plywood, you can steal construction barrels from when they do road work nearby, road signs work great, fllaen down limbs from trees can be stacked up to make an exelent and sturdy bunker, go chopping down trees then you canuse the bulk of the tree to stack ontop of eachother, if u rlly wanna good scenario bunker go anywhere they are building houses and u can find used sheets of plywood and 2/4'rs to build the frames of houses and support em to trees, but whatch out for those possums, even tho they make great shooting galleries they never stop stareing u in the eye      grrrrr scary little critters for more ideas on fields and target ranges im me at GWAR6688.

use anything and everything. me and my cousin used pallets to build walls for buildings and covered them with heavy duty plastic to keep paiont out. This works great for milsim cuz u can make rooms and crap out of them I thnk weve spent liek 40 bucks on our course. ill get some pics sometime.

we dug a 5 foot fox hole out of clay in both bases on either end. then we took dead tree limbs and surrounded the fox hole. we later used crates after we got a trench on the inside of each base.
Because I can.

A while ago, I was thinking of ways to improve our woodsball course that my buddies and I play on, and thought of this quick, easy way to make bunkers. Well, by quick, I mean, it shouldn't take more than a day to make, if your not a lazy ass. Ok, first, dig a four or four and a half foot deep hole, whatever your preferance for how deep you want the hole. Then, get one of those small, hard-plastic kiddy swimming pools, and flip it over the top of the hole to be the walls and ceiling. Cut an entryway in the back of the pool, and some spots in the front to shoot out of. Of course, most of these pools won't blend in too great with a woodsball arena, so I suggest piling dirt or brush or whatever around or on it to act as camo. Or, you could actually paint a camoflauged pattern on the pool itself, which is what I do to my tree stands that I make. With a little ingenuity, I think this could potentially work very well as a bunker.          ; ;

dig a hole and put a board over it then put grass and stuff over the board and hide in it u can pop up and shoot then duck back down,no one will know where you are.just hope no one runs over the hole,but with a strong board you shouldnt have a problem.^^^ just pop the stupid thing with a .22 lol

at one of the fields I go to, the owners took a bobcat and dug trenches all over the field.  other than that, good sized scrap plywood, screws and 2x4s, make them strong.  tires are great too, but i haven't tried the pallets.  spindels that have been used for cables and what not are great to have.  electric companies usually have them laying around.

 I have natural sinkholes that cover up like a 5 by 5 foot area and are about 4 foot deep. Also while I was thinking, if you get like 5 people to work on your course then you should consider getting about 35 big garbage bags full of leaaves and make pyramids or tall triangles. I've done the triangle ones, and they work pretty well as long as you aren't like 6'5.

Hey bud good topic. look the best thing is plywood and your own imagination. 

   I live in Gatineau Quebec Can. and get a good wooden area with closse quarter wood and a good open place and build your self a small citie vith only plywood. the endless stuss you can do in a feild like that is crazy!!! thats what i did with a bunch of friend and we havent got sich of it yet havent mouved a thing in 2 years. So get your self some plywood from anywere dont need to be all spiffy and stuff just scrap plywood and go for it knock your self out to build anything in your mind!!!

Plywood.

Also go to your local cable company and tell them you'll take their big spools for free. They usually have to pay someone to take it away for them.

if u build the palets, try going to k-mart and asking the manager if you could have some of the outdoor sale signs(the signs they put out along the streets durring big sales).  and i am sure those signs could stop a paintball.  and if they don't give them to ya, just go and pull them outta the ground...saves them the trouble of having to pick them up.  and they don't seem to care if they disapear.  but i staple the signs to the palets and you have a solid wall.  the signs are made of a plastic cardboard.  so they'll work great if they have somekind of support behind them.

What we do is dig fox-holes and stack logs around it.

By doing this you make yourself a smaller target since your partialy under ground.................this realy works>>>>>>BASTOGNE<<<<<<
