Despite snow threatening the match build our match season kicked off with the Hardy Action Shotgun Match, which serves as Round 2 of the NRA Shotgun Championship. The results are here: http://freepdfhosting.com/cab7a56425.pdf
We would like to thank everyone who took part and special thanks to all of our Range Officers who make the match possible.
Our next match is a Mini-Rifle/Pistol Practical match held on the 7 & 8th of April. The match is open to .22 Rifle, .22 Long Barrel Pistol, Long Barrel Revolvers & Lever Action/Release Rifles and competitors are welcome to enter multiple divisions.
Our next Action Shotgun match has been moved to the weekend of the 16th of June to avoid clashing with the IPSC World Championship match. We hope many of you will join us for these matches.

In the run up to this match Shield had been plagued by vicious winter storms, but mercifully the weather stayed dry long enough for us to celebrate the end of 2017 in style with our annual 2 Gun Fun match.
We would like to thank everyone who supported us this year by attending, building and running our matches. We now have our winter break from major matches, our 2018 season kicks off again with the Hardy Shotgun Match to be held on the weekend of 10th and 11th of March 2018. We hope many of you will join us there.
And all that remains is for us to wish one and all a Happy New Year!
Steve, Biddy & Robbie

Sincere apologies for the lateness of this post. However the internet in rural Dorset is less than brilliant at the best of times and tonight has been far from the best.
In any case we enjoyed a beautiful spring day here at Shield for our first Rifle & LBP match of the season.
