By fort, do you mean a "fort" or just a building of some sorts? I have seen bodies of airplanes used, old tanks,old yachts,etc. If you want to build something most ones that I have seen are usually one sided or 3 sided at most using 2 x 4's and plywood. Some are 2 story with ladders. Then again you could go and find some cheap wall tents and set them up and pretend your raiding a camp.

I have seen paintball areas with buildings made out of old tires and palets.

Yup, skids. Free, usually; and can be held up (and doubled up) with metal t-posts. Also seen appliance and furniture boxes used - not sure how they kept them from moving as I was watching from a loooong way away!

Our neighbour works at a dairy, and saves the big plastic barrels for his son-in-law who's into the paintball games. Either the plastic ones or the metal ones, they form ring fortresses, sometimes stacking them two high.

A couple of years ago they had on news about this person that lives close to Tulsa built his own "Bald Hill", Bologna Hill or something like that. On top of the hill he had bunkers, dugouts, trenches, etc. just like in a real war. They would have paintball shootouts only on saturday mornings, and afternoons. All the people that would come to play would be divided into two teams. "A" team which was about one third of the players would hike up the hill and take positions in the trenches, bunkers, etc. "B" team which was the other two thirds of the players would charge up the hill to try to overrun the "B" team. They said they always had big turnouts.

I lived on an indian reserve and so i grew up with a lot of anger and hate. The only way to get rid of it was paintballing. There they hit to hurt each other, besides that it was great fun. I love to paintball. The best thing though is thy found a big tractor tire. they stacked them on each other. First one into the tire had the best shot. They also made just walls with the tires. They had a shed and it was terribly addicting. I was the best of the best if you want to go with me just email me. I think im one of the best thanks. PEACE OUT M-DAWG the one

P.S Tree stands are amazing when you play in a rather big place.
