Put those dang plastic orange end protectors on your rebar - you don't want to see an accidental impalement or something. I'm afraid of exposed rebar..

You could even cover the rebar with a pvc pipe with endcap which would give you the sturdiness of the rebar impaled in the ground, but the safety of the pvc with end cap to prevent impalement - will still hurt, but shouldn't penetrate the body.

A cautionary tale about blunt force -

A girl at my high school (long ago) was helping to unpack groceries. She tripped and fell on a cooking oil bottle that was vertical. She appeared OK, but over the next couple of days became progressively ill. She had started bleeding internally (liver damage) and barely survived on a whole lot of donor blood. She was in the hospital for a few months.

End caps help on sharp stuff, but they are not perfect.

Something else. One of the first fields I ever played on was groomed with a chainsaw. They had cut the pine trees down around the flag station. The ground was full of 1 to 2 inch diameter stumps, 6 inches tall, cut at 45 degrees. Don't do that.

Easiest way i have found to make bunkers is an idea stolen from an outlaw field that was out in oakley CA.

2x4's in blue
plywood in black





Best thing is, no limit to bunkers that can be made, can make doritos, snake beams and knuckles, can move them around really easy too to change up the field layout.

We made our first bunkers like this but watch getting your feet shot. Just cut out so the plywood can go all the way to the ground. These lasted for years without painting.

Local soap place sells me 55gallon drums for $5. Otherwise look at the lamb and bianchi barricades for IDPA. Lamb barricade is one 4x8 sheet of plywood to make two bunkers.

I would not want to go running quickly into a Bianchi barricade, the cross pieces are a big safety hazard. I don't even like people going up to some of them with guns, depending on the construction.

Maybe I'm confused - my Bianchi barricade just has short stablizing legs on the front and back, just like every free standing bunker in this thread, same as the Lamb VTAC barricade. Price of playing outlaw - at least it isn't impalement via re-bar.

Years and years ago my old man broke his collar bone diving into a bunker that had a tree stump protruding at a local field - this isn't chess.
