Step 2: Step 2: Dig deep real deep

Decide how wide the hole must be and how deep you want it. After that you can put tarp in it to keep some of the dirt off of you. (ofcourse the picture below shows a hole bigger than what you need unless your putting a lot of snipers in it)

<p>You have everything but the rifle ; )</p><p>http://worldpremierairsoftcenter.com/best-airsoft-sniper-rifles/</p>
To make really good camo for stuff take wire mesh weave branches brush twigs any thing from the area your putting it then nail it up <br>
I made this instructable when I was like 13! Wow I can't believe this account is still active! This was published back when instructables still had the not liable section lol.
We build fighting holes for more then just snipers. We put defenders and riflemen in them. We've also dug them randomly, so in the middle of a battle, any unit can get in one.
Thats a fighting hole... One that you get in and wait... A fox hole is a hasty defensive position where you just take a layer of dirt off of the ground and lay down so you are concealed but hardly covered...
Don't be so sure. I was listening to a WWII vetren who explaine normal foxholes in the pacific campaign were 9 ft deep, 12 ft wide, and 12 ft long. Troops were suposed to sleep in them.
I was talking about the differences between a fox hole and a fighting hole. Many people use the two interchangably, although they are two different things. Fighting holes are what you stay up watching while your buddy sleeps and is more long term.
Thank you for making this. My airsoft war is trench warfare, the bases up to a mile apart. This'll be helpful.
I made one of these in the forest behind my house and it is awesome!
Sweetness<br><br>hmmm.... spawns an idea for a 1 man portable one.....<br><br>Now you have me on a mission.....
Do you play minecraft?
Irrelevant, but yes, of course xD
im buying a air gun 400 fps powerful enogh to kill birds?<br>
No, but at point blank it can make people bleed.
I have killed birds with a 300fps gun, but it only really hurts smaller birds with a headshot.
400 should be enough, i hunt with mine. Rabbit and bird mostly. The ocaisional raccoon. mine's 495 FPS.
it depends, what kind of ammo?
Nice instructable i was thinking of following your idea but then a different idea popped in my head, kinda like your fort
Wow, having a bunker/foxhole setup for a round of paintball would be awesome. It would take a closed private area to build it, but there are some great <a href="http://paintballgunstoday.com/sniper_paintball_guns/">sniper paintball guns</a> that could be used in this setup. Thanks for showing the tapered design used in the interior of the foxhole, this seems easier to dig and construct.
Perhaps the worst mistake you could ever do is put your sniper rifle OUTSIDE&nbsp;of cover. That's why you never see assasins with their sniper rifle out the window...
&nbsp;where the hell do you live where there would be ANY assassins??
Hey some of my best mates are assassins, his rifles havent even seen the day light, we have assassin parties, with chips and what not.<br />
so that was your place? nice. <br>i liked the look of that beandip you had, any chance of getting the recipe?
You too?
nice job. very nice job. i like it.
what kind of camo is the last picture? it looks like Mossy Oak
Very well done. I really enjoyed the diagram in step 3. I plan on installing at least on of these for general purpose, be it airsoft or just a good hiding spot. The one thing it's missing is an emergency out. Military snipers are required when building these to have an easy way out in the back for after the shot, but oh well. It's still awsome you thought to post this.
one thing you didnt mention is what to do with the soil, that in is self is a dead give away that there is some one dug in there. this will also only work along as no1 else knows where it is, if you play in the same area every time, people will know where it is and all you digging will be wasted as some one sneaks up behind you and lobs a paint grenade in!
Where are you?......
nice idea ,<br /> but you only got 180' field of view MAX leaving you three flanks open ,worst off all<br /> if you were out flanket from behind you have no hope ,if you had to retreat you <br /> would give your self up to full view on exiting ,<br /> your wepon is a DEAD give away as well ,<br /> also if your going to snipe you dont want to be in the same postion for more <br /> than 2 shots , this would work as forward postion(with a bit more fortification )<br /> or for ambush , honestly recon is the only use i would consider even then the best way to hide some thing is in plane view and any well trained spotter would have you real quick ,any how if first you dont suceed well in combat you die <br /> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; keep smilen :)&nbsp;<br />
<p>Just add a roof to that and you have a small base to store guns and ammo.</p>
put half the dirt back in there and put water in it and tht b a good mud pit 4 my 4wheeler vrom vromm
WOW bit pointless?<br />
hahahaha i know just&nbsp; tryn to b funny and it is to deep dude its twice as deep as tht shovel
oh kl it is but the deeper means more cover, bo\ut can at times be a niusance, it also could be the angle of pic or shovel length.
my friend made one of these and it was really hard to get into because you had to crawl into it from the front
hey cool but in the marines we were tought the 360 rule which is you should be able to look around and see 360 deegrees for the reason of befor taking your shot or putting your gun out there are no birds animals or anything.that is how i got myself within inches of death didnt check well enogh .birds started to fly i just got maby 30 feet from my bunker when boom morter round.i had to cary my spoter 80 miles before we could be evaced.he lived and hes fine.

nice instructable! i'll have to make this at my gparents to hunt som rabbit!
why shoot? why rabbits? why not wrestle a bear lol, that would be fun.
wrestle a bear? are you mad?
if he kills it and eats it it's okay, if its killed for the sake of killing, that is wrong.
