So, what is Airsoft?

Airsoft is a recreational activity in which participants eliminate opponents by hitting each other with spherical plastic pellets launched via replica firearms. RUAS aims to open the world of Airsoft to all individuals with an interest. We also aim to provide services such as first hand advice, equipment hire and event management.

Gameplay varies in style and composition but often range from short-term skirmishes, organised scenarios, military simulations, or historical reenactments. Combat situations on the battlefield often involve the use of common military tactics to achieve objectives set in each game.


Participants typically emulate the tactical equipment and accessories used by modern military and police organisations. Airsoft is a fun, varied, affordable and exciting activity, which allows enthusiasts of all skills and backgrounds to join together in team based games and decide how involved they want to be.
