    Man using riot shield in Airsoft arena

    In a sport that is built on respect, fair play and keeping within the ‘spirit’ of the game, riot shields are something of a dividing topic. Many of us will have at some point considered whether using a shield would be productive for us and our teammates and whether it would be something we actually want to use.
