I’ve just found out about this sad news. Steve Banks, Owner and Founder of Combat South, has passed away. Steve was one of the people to grab the reigns and really push UK airsoft to the masses in the 90’s. He was one of the key pioneers that made airsoft what it is today. As it happens I experienced my first organised skirmish at Combat South back in 1998 and Steve made me feel very welcome indeed, as he did with thousands of other newbies over the years. A big loss to the UK airsoft community.
