Pallet Bunker Inspiration

AKA: Pallet Bunker Pron.

Who doesn't love paintball on the cheap? Problem is finding a place to do it. My buddy has the property available, and we have a line on a place to get free pallets, So I'm on the lookout for great pallet bunker ideas. If you are too, this is the place for you. Post up your pics and ideas (mostly with pics) to share with the rest of us.

Here are a few to start out with.

Love the last one. Would be easy to shoot out of and a pain to get a good shot into.

entry way on the last one needs bracing. and pictures of the interior? it looks like it might be an open top with a platform but it's hard to tell.

Edit: there are ridiculous amounts of free tires to be had. Don't be afraid to grab those as well to incorporate them into the pallet structures.

Just be careful with the use of tires....if you get enough rain, they make perfect breeding grounds for mosquitoes. You could unintentionally turn your field into swarms of bugs. That's always fun.

A hole saw is your friend if you use tires. Drill holes in all of the low spots to keep that water out of them.

I have been getting plastic pallets from work the last few months that I have been taking to my local field. The owner loves them because they do not rot.

way back when I would help with setting up outlaw fields, vertical tires got the hole saw treatment horizontal tires got a piece of cardboard on one side then packed with dirt before they were stacked. pretty easy since we used auto tires, tractor tires were hard to come by for free much less transport through the woods

To keep the post legit: easiest pallet bunker we ever came up with was two pallets bottom to bottom screwed together with hinges. super easy to fold up and hide or re-arrange the field

I'm guessing Hinges can be had for cheap, but I'm wondering how long they'll hold up being moved around?
