you could use a mixture of 55 gallon drums and nail two pallets together and stand them up to form a "v" shape. Having two nailed together on one side will give them enough stability to stand upright. you could even dig a small trench just big enough for the very bottom of the pallet to rest in for added stability...Me and my friends actually used tarps once, yes, it was bootleg, but it worked out pretty well. We strung a piece of rope from two poles and drapped a tarp over it, it provides sufficient cover from paintballs. Variety is the key, the layout should be interesting. At least, thats how I see it. Now that I think about it, maybe you shouldn't use the tarp idea, it's pretty red-neck and most likely will give your field a bad reputation. Stick with the drums and pallets...maybe some of that large black plastic construction pipe, that's always cool. Old junk cars would be neat if you have any and you don't think it's an accident waiting to happen. It really depends on the size area you have...you could even use those containers like the ones on the back of semi-trucks...

     To day I was working on my field and we just got 50 haybales from my nabor for free!!! So we are making a Big snake and we made our "fifty" out of two 55 gallon Drums with 2 tires on top of each with a stack of 3 tires in between them. On top of that our flag ins on a short pole in the middle of the stack of tires. Then our "Pillows" are pallets with a sheet of plywood on them. We also have 2 railroad trets, (if thats wast they are called) with 2 big sheets of tin on em. Our field is about 75feed long so we have to turn our guns down to like 185-235FPS. Just get creative and ue what ever you can.

Where did you buy the sandbag bunkers. I'm in the process of revamping a paintball field and sandbags would be perfect for what I need.

I have my own field. I have a little bit of everything on my course. I mean it's fun to play on cuz we have couches, little boats, crates, those big wooden spool things, big wooden 90 degree angle things. You could use just about anything. Be creative.

put honey on superglass and it will creat an adhesive.  if it gets on your skin, you will have to rip your skin off.
