Forcible entry can be a challenge and most of us do not get enough practice.  Residential doors can not be reused very effectively and commercial doors are hard to come by for training purposes.  With the help of a local weld shop I put together a training prop that can be used over and over.  It continues to give rookies and seasoned vets the opportunity to reinforce gap, set, and force techniques for residential and commercial forcible entry.  The prop also has cuts stations for K12 used at various heights.  Check out the pictures and I will post a video demo soon.

That's a good looking prop.

How much did this cost you?
I just paid for materials. The weld shop was nice enough to let me use the equipment to make it. They are coming up with a price to make them. They are just figuring time and materials, probably around $1500. They are also drawing plans to sell if you have a weld shop in your area that can make it for you.
