we used to have a place that the guy had a tire bailer or something that wadded up tires into 4X4 blocks...you could literally stand on them.

we get huge pallets that mattresses come on at my work. sometimes they are nice wood like cedar. i have been piling them up for some sort of something like this. some kids stole a big pile i imagine for a bonfire party...darn kids would love to get plastic 55 gallon drums but people want a lot for em.

got access to a backhoe so i might try to do some trenches and stuff like that too. also have a pallet of quickrete that got rained on so its basically useless.

Trenches are awesome. My favourite field in southern alberta, good ol home, has an amazing set of trenches, its isn't huge, but big enough you can't shoot end to end. But the problem is they deteriorate and get sloppy, and you can't use them for days after lots of rain. But if you were to build them up with pallets and fill it in, hell, not only would it be safer, but would stand up to abuse.

For the OP, Idon like the second one. While the legs provide for snap shooting support, it doesn't do much for the moving forward part of things. Try and pound posts and build it in place maybe

good way to find cheap or free plastic drums, if you have a car wash near by that is full service like a delta sonic (that's the one we used in buffalo to get our needed information) they are supplied with soap by the drum.

Tell the manager you need the suppliers contact info because you need rain barrels or something along those lines so they don't feel like they are enabling a possible competitor. The soap supplier has no use for drums that can't seal properly anymore and you'll either get them for free or cheap

Here's a couple more from GRC Paintball. I don't think these are strictly made from pallets, but they could be broken down to fashion some similar structures.

I believe GRC has one of those small portable sawmills on site. If you look at their structures, it is all rough cut wood. I think I saw the picture on FB.

Here it is. It would sure make it convenient to build bunkers/structures.

COOL.

Pallets, Tires, Sandbags, old plastic/steel drums, and a few trenches! The first field I played at regularly (Salt River Paintball in MI) was basically just that (okay, it had a little more, but LOTS of drums and pallets).

The last pic is the Pallet Pavilion
